March 2011 was yet another busy month with lots of news items keeping us all busy on the website looking at all the new items! During the month, we acquired access to another MG Y Type database with information on over 170 Y Types, some of which we already had some information on and were able to fill in the missing blanks, but also a number new owners and cars on! We now have over 3,120 cars in our database and it continues to grow as I receive responses from the new members. Welcome to you all and we look forward to seeing your Ys on the gallery, Ys on Parade, soon as we all love to see more Ys irrespective of their condition!
The Picture of the Month brings us up to date with a stunning picture of Jerry Birkbeck's lovely new MG Y/T which was on show and attracted much interest at the International MG Show and Spares Day at Stoneleigh, UK in February earlier this year.
Continuing with a Y/T theme, the Reprinted Article comes from The Sacred Octagon magazine, April 1986 and is an article by Tom Boscarino and Y/T 4700.
