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
Brian and Christine Calder have sent in a new photograph of
Y 3095 for Ys on Parade.
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.
Today, please welcome Ian Thomas and YT 4714 to
Ys on Parade.
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
A new technical advice note on
Brake shoe liner
replacement has been added to the Technical Advice
It's time for the mid-month magazine Reproduced

released earlier this month said, now is your chance to find out.

Remember the rally going MG YB

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.

happened to the car. The car is not currently known of on our database so

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!
