Geoffrey Pace has provided an update to the text on  Y 0865 for Ys on Parade.  The car sounds lovely so when you can please Geoffrey can you send in a new photo too please so we can all see how lovely she has turned out?  Thanks

Also, if any one is interested, I have been asked by the organisers of a tour of Sweden and Norway to publicise their tour.  It is from May 18 - June 1 2006.  Entry is restricted to the first 50 cars so if you are interested in taking your Y - please call Ian on +44 (0)1824 790280 or email him here for more details.  Of course if you go, there will be some stunning scenery and it would make for a very interesting report on the site too so take your camera please!

A while ago the two of three of the original artworks as used in the Autocar's review of the MG Y dated 9 May 1947 was acquired.  At the time an interest was expressed by some owners for a copy of these.  They are now available on the Reprinted Articles page.

Flicking through the 'newly' (it takes a while to get to our local book store here, plus an 80 mile round trip!!) arrived Classic and Sports Car Magazine for October 2005, there is a report on pages 164 - 165 on the MG Car Club Silverstone meeting earlier this year.  Although the editor missed a fantastic opportunity to comment on the fabulous turn out of lovely MG Y Types there in his commentary, he did at least take this picture, and print it, of Andrew Coulson's MG YB pick up conversion.  You can read more about this car here, and you can read more about the Silverstone Weekend - with a special emphasis on Y Types here.

It's time for the mid-month magazine Reproduced Article, and for those of you who were wondering what the German article released earlier this month said, now is your chance to find out.

Remember the rally going MG YB
from Holland on Interesting Ys?  We have some more information on it from the owners so check it out again.  Hopefully sometime we will be able to add more to the detail of this amazing car.

It is a year since the last update to the YT Factory Production Records. Total Cars identified as 'Confirmed Survivors' is now 163, that's 13 more than last year. Only two of these were on the thought to have survived, the other 11 are new.  A new YT Factory Production Records file has been supplied by David Pelham and is now available for downloading.

Pat Keily used to have an MG YB back in the 1960's and would like to know what happened to the car.  The car is not currently known of on our database so we have added it to the Lost Ys page.  If you can help, please contact the
Registrar who will pass on your details.

84 more days to Christmas - perish the thought!

Jumping straight in this month is Tony Stock with another great picture on Ys at Weddings - with 2 YTs!

Also, a new Picture of the Month for your enjoyment. Continuing from last month, we have another foreign language article again from an article in a German magazine Reprinted Articles!  The English translation will come in a few weeks time, so watch out!

As an interesting aside, since we began offering Technical Assistance through the Technical Advice page (available from the Menu under Technical Centre) the information contained and available from our site is now so great that owners of other MG models, and indeed other makes too, are referencing it on a regular basis!
