The number of members registering their high mileage cars has dropped
lately, however I expect that with the year drawing to a close, many of you
passed the 100K mark this past season. When you get a chance please register
your 100K MG with me and I will mail you a certificate and your NAMGBR 100K
When Robin Weatherall first arrived in the USA from Britain in 1979, he purchased a Teal Blue MGB GT with 62,000 miles on the clock. The car has served faithfully as his daily driver for nearly fourteen years and the odometer now reads 209,000 miles! Robin drives more than 20K miles each year in one or other of his MGs. He says, "As an expatriate Brit I'm proud of the reputation MGs have in the USA and the commitment of the many club members nationally to keeping the cars on the road. Over the years I have made many friends through the MG movement."
One of those friends Robin talks about would surely be Robert Mason of Alabama (the Register's Technical Coordinator-Ed.).
Bob's MGB GT finished in Grampian Grey has covered at least 185,000 miles,
possibly more. The car was rescued from the crusher in early 1982 and after
much work has won "Best of show" on several occasions.
Kurt Miller of Southlake, Texas purchased his (now) red MGB Roadster in 1994. At that time the car was finished in mustard yellow, but Kurt decided a red respray was in order! He continues to upgrade his car when time permits and this MGB has a current odometer reading of 118,000 miles.
These NAMGBR members have now received their certificate and dash plaque as a record of their inclusion in the 100K Register, so if you have a high mileage car that qualifies, then send your membership number, a photograph and a brief history with any documentation to me at the 100K Register.
