In case you have not yet come across this Magnette in the movies and possibly use it as a monthly picture. In the movie musical “Sweet Charity”, starring Shirley McLane as Charity Hope Valentine, she and a potential hopeful attend a gathering of the Rhythm of life Church. It is held in a basement parking garage / repair shop. After the gathering was raided by police and most everyone is gone, at the end of the scene the two leave the garage running past the parked Magnette. Except for the Magnette of course, while OK, I cannot say the rest of movie was quite as memorable.

Just searched on Magnettes in TV shows, thinking of the recent UK series which was run on our public broadcast station “Call the Midwife” where an MG Magnette driven by a doctor made regular appearances. What I ended up coming across was the Internet Movie Car Data Base (IMCDB) which has all kinds of excellent references of Magnettes appearing in movies and TV shows (Sweet Charity didn’t appear to show up however). See here...

Hello, here am I again! Sorry for the delay in updating this website, but apart from working on another MG-website, I had to set up a new PC-system as my old system was very very old and crashed from time to time. You all know how long it takes, until the new PC looks like your old one, and you have all access and passwords back.

Anyway: we start with a report from Mexico, where our friend Luis Benito does a lot publicity for MG in general and Magnettes in special. Read 2014_03_news_from_LaPaz.

Colin Goldsworthy has written a very detailed article on repairing the interior clock, which can be found on the technical support website.

Very few cars have an original clock in working condition, and although some owners choose to replace the internals with modern electronics, Colin shows how the electro-mechanical movement can be brought back to life, with patience and a few simple tools. Based on his experience of owning several Magnettes and Wolseleys, the article explains how the clock works, how to take it apart, and common faults.
