Glyn & Lynda's 1974 MGB Roadster

Glyn & Lynda's 1974 roadster, on the road again after resting and in a garage for six years. Now enjoying many miles of MG motoring.

Ian's 1957 MG Magnette ZB Varitone

Ian's 1957 MG Magnette ZB Varitone

This car was purchased in 1980. I restored it over several years including a bare metal re-spray. In 2000 the 1489cc engine was replaced with a 1798cc 5 bearing engine giving noticeable performance benefits.

The car has been used on two club holidays to France and to holidays to South Wales and in 1995 the car was exhibited at the London Classic Car Show at Alexandra Palace.

These cars boast an all leather interior with polished wood fascia and door capings. They were noted in the 1950's for their high standard of road holding and as the fastest British 1½ litre 4-door saloon.

Simon's 1976 MGB (V8 conversion)

Simon rebuilt his car from a very sad looking white 'B' into this immaculate car and it only took 12 years.

Gary and Bridget's Midget

1973 MG Midget 1275cc RWA in Black Tulip. Restored to almost original in 2000 with ocre interior and Rubery Owen "Rostyle" wheels, took 19 months to complete (by previous owner). I have added a classic walnut dash, wooden steering wheel and a couple of not so classic modern accessories - electronic points, heated seats and sound proofing. I spent 3 months on mechanical repairs, tuning and general maintenance required after years of sitting in a garage  -  completed only 40 miles in 3 years by the previous owner, to and from the MOT station as far as I could tell.
Roy and Anne MGB GT

Roy and Anne’s 1968 MGB GT 

I am the 19th owner of this MG which I purchased in 2002 with the intention of completely restoring  it.  I did start the restoration but due to a severe back injury it became obvious that I was not going to be able to continue with this.  The MG remained  in the garage all in pieces  until his wife gave him an ultimatum - Get rid of it or get someone else to finish it.   It was decided that a garage would carry out and complete the restoration. 

 The work commenced in 2007 and after 18 months the MG was finally restored to its present condition having the colour changed from white to British Racing Green and was back on the road on the 1st May 2009 - just 7 years after I  bought the MG.

Gary's MGTF

Gary's 2005 MGTF 160VVC

One of the last out of the Longbridge factory - seen here at the millbrook proving ground in Bedfordshire with the 'suffering not quite in silence Bridget'. Showing the diversity in the Luton and Dunstable MG owners club - we have and welcome all models and vintages and have the whole range of MG's from a 1950's TF to a 2005 TF. This one is noisy and a lot of fun - with a TT mk7 exhaust the very quick 1.8 VVC 160 BHP engine and the optional sports pack.

Carol and Daves MGB
