2023 will also mark the 21st birthday of the website! Thank you for your faithful following of the site since April 14 2002. As we said at that time, "Remember, it is your site, and much of the content will be supplied by you, so please start to send us your stuff. Without it we will not be able to keep you happy. We hope you will enjoy this site, and come back again soon to see what's new." With that said, what changes would you like to see in the future? New features and pages? A new design and look to the website? A change of Webmaster? contact me with your comments and suggestions and we will take them on board and see what we can do to continue to make this site the premier website in the world for MG Y Types. In the interim, my thanks to my fellow board members - Tony Slattery, and David Lawrence - and of course you - the MG Y Type lovers and fans from across the world for your support, contributions and input over the past years!
