A new brochure has been obtained - this is a very rare one, especially printed for the Australian Market and is very interesting in that it promotes the YA over the TC, which has been relegated to the back page. The date is unknown, but since it mentions the TC and does not mention the YT, it could be about 1947/8. It anyone knows, we would love to hear from you.
We have also added Scott's Old Auto Rubber to the Links Page. Scott's are able to supply, amongst other bits, the correct door check stop rubbers for the MG Y Saloon!

Well, some of you already know, and others may have guessed it, but I am moving from the UK to Washington State USA at the end of this month. As a result, the changeover of February to March updates maybe a little late but please bear with me on this and I will try to get it done for you as soon as possible. The Register have asked me to stay on as webmaster, so bad luck those who fancied a change - there won't be one!!
Meanwhile, after a very busy January, we have a new Picture of the Month for you. Meanwhile, do not forget to download your calendar from the side bar. I have moved it up and put a coffee bean on it for you! Keep the Ys on Parade, and all the other stuff coming in please.
With our first new addition to Ys on Parade this month, please welcome Simon Jones with Y 2436.
