The translation is now available for
Thomas Künzli's entry for YA 7225 from the Swiss - hopefully we have a fairly accurate version!

Following Steve Simmons thread on the BBS for car covers, I have added Cover Systems to the Links page as they have proven to be a very good reliable supplier who stand by their product.

Please welcome

The quick among you will note that we have added three "quick links" for Ys on Parade (direct to the individual pages) and also three for the Reprints options.  We are working on a new menu structure that will facilitate a drop down box for these.  If you wish to go to the summary pages for these areas, please click on the button as before.

This month's Reprinted Article is taken from Practical Classics, December 1984 and is a basic Buyer's Guide.

Also added to Collectibles is an early BP Lubrication Chart for the YA/YT (see Manuals section), and also details and a copy of the picture of the BEN Christmas Card (see Other section) as mentioned on the Bulletin Board Thread from David Mullen and Neil Cairns.  Copies of the card can be obtained direct from the BEN website and there is a a link on the item details to take you to their site.  As it is also artistic, it has also been added to the Artists Impressions too.

Added today to the Book Review page is a complete set of MG YA/YT, and MG YB, handbooks, parts lists, and workshop manuals (go to the Reprinted Manuals and Handbooks bookmark).  These have been reprinted from original material and are good quality reproductions.  If you do not already have an original, one of these will stand you in good stead until you do, and even if you already have an original, these will make excellent copies for "in use" in the garage while on the job.  Currently these are only available through the MG Octagon Car Club - there is a link on both the Book Review page and on the main Links page to them.

Also, yesterday, we had our 101st entry to the guestbook!  If you have not already posted an entry to the guestbook we'd love to hear from you too so please file your entry.

I was asked at the recent committee meeting (in Ian's absence!) to add Ian Hopkins' event boards to Artists Impressions - so I have!  Ian is our Graphic Designer and designs fabulous boards for Y Type events - if asked!!  He is very a very retiring sort, and will probably kill us when he finds out what we have done, but we think they are great - so there Ian!

Andrew Coulson has sent in a report on last month's "Why to Exe 2", or Y2X2 as it has been called!  Sounds like Dennis Doubtfire has pulled off another fantastic weekend in the West Country and we (webmaster and wife) sorry not to be able to attend due to a very last minute change of plans.

Please welcome Steve Simmons with YB 1547 to Ys on Parade.  Steve's car was formerly owned by Phil McKercher of Canada and now lives in Southern California.  Steve has updated the photograph and changed the dialogue on the car.  Also updated is the photo and dialogue on the webmaster's car Y 5270 as work nears completion.

Ken Jones alerted us in August 2003 to the fact that the MG YT featured on a chocolate wrapper as part of a set of chocolates marketed by the UK Past Times company.  We have tracked down a pack - see Collectibles, the chocolates were good too!

The Picture of the Month this month is courtesy of David Pelham and shows Ed Versteeg with YB1320.
