NEC Classic Show, 11-13 November 2022

Jack and I decided we would like to support the Early Ford V8 group and offered to exhibit our 1945 Ford pick up. We shared the stand with 2 Pilots and a 1932 roadster. Apart from restoring and owning MGs, with help, we fitted in the restoration/preservation of our truck. We were pleased that it ended up at the show as it facilitated a long weekend around a load of great classic cars and enthusiasts. It was a very enjoyable experience.

Having the rather useful exhibitor wrist band we were allowed to travel through the show slightly out of hours, without the crowds. Lots of MGs were on show and a highlight for us, was Paul Batho's ZA Magnette, both in model form and in the flesh on the MGCC stand.

Hopefully one day we will exhibit an MG at the NEC. Who knows may be one day Jack will show a Magnette on the young members stand!

Lou Shorten Tribute 8/9th October 2022

On a notably sunny October weekend our Norfolk event followed a well established format, with 10 Magnettes on Saturday at John Shorten’s open house (in Lenwade) where a buffet lunch was enjoyed in the garden and the Concours and Pride of Ownership were judged. There was also a raffle which seemed to be happily engineered so that everyone came away with a prize !

Once again the Register had a good weekend at Kop Hill Climb (24/25 September) which in previous years has often seemed to experience its own micro-climate of low cloud and mist.

On Pole at Silverstone

Jack and Kevin Skuce enter their ZB in the Concours at MGLive! (11-12 June 2022)

Most often, especially in car magazines, cars have their 'moment in the sun', during and just after restoration. This is often quite rightly so, as the effort that is made by many in car restoration should be shared and celebrated. This was the case with our ZB Varitone Magnette, which featured fresh from its latest restoration in the July 2020 edition of Safety Fast! We were proud of the restoration that the car received, however we didn't want it to become a 'Trailer Queen' and as such it's had over 1500 largely trouble free miles since.
