Interesting pictures from the Melbourne F1 and Fox museum Robert. I went there about 3 years ago and there were no MG's on display - I understand this is just a small part of his overall collection and the displays are rotated and changed periodically. If you are ever in Melbourne, definitely worth a visit.
Just preparing the instructions for this run. We will have this finished in the next couple of days. If you want to come for the day and not do the Gentle Annie road or stay overnight you can, just return home back to the Manawatu.
Hi Mg'ers hope you have great trip next weekend.Still not sure if I will make yet.But would like to throw something in for discussion ,as the Targa maps are published in Classic Car mag would anyone be interested in perhaps cruising some of these two day event roads (ie tracing the targa roads sometime in the future and doing an overnighter in say HASTINGS OR ROTORUA. cheers Des.
Hi everyone, we have one person interested in doing a Saturday only trip so if there is anyone else interested please give us a ring 06 3234040.
Marvelous weekend to Napier then over Gentle Annie. Well done Sandy, oh and Trev. Seriously, thanks for another really great MG Manawatu run.
Since nobody else seems to have done so I'd like to say thank you Rob for your well written and detailed report on Sandy and Trevor's weekend. It made me smile as I relived the fun time we shared on the trip they had obviously put so much effort into organising for so many of us.
Don't forget the MG Classic car meeting at Manfeild this Sunday
Racing starts at about 10am
Why not support this event, bring your MG, make up a group
See you there
HI ROBERT I wonder if Morris Gordon would like a trip to see these? HOPE he's not suffocating in someones BOOT ///.

Another great Mid Winter Dinner and good turn out of members
Thanks for this must go to Pat for organising the whole programme
Many moons have past overhead since my first visit to the Power Station not that things have changed there much.
What a great thought to get Russell Harris along as guest speaker
Russell has a long association with MGs and the MG Charity classic car racing at Manfeild
Way back in history i was one of a team from 2ZA that went out all night to report on the Day Breaker Rally. Our job was to get details back to Russell for his radio reports, Hard to do that out in the middle of nowhere and before we had cell phones
Anyway Thank you Pat for a fine job
PS Pat you need to go online to read this
