As many of you may know, thanks to Carsten Deuster we also have a presence on Facebook. Group Founding member Carsten has chosen to simplify his life to concentrate on family and business matters and having recently sold his MG Y Type and has decided to step down from his role as an Adminministrator. On behalf of the members and the rest of the "Admin Team", we wish to sincerely thank him for founding this page and developing what has become an important method for members to interact.
Carsten, we wish you and your family well, and know you will continue as an interested member on the Facebook page and follower of MG Y Types - who knows, we may see him back as an owner later on?? Safety Fast!
The site had been started by Michaela Arnus (Ivo‘s Ex wife) a couple of months before. Carsten took over the Admin role in September 2014
Also added today - a new Collectible post card has been added showing an MG Y outside the Old Buckingham Jail in the UK.
