|Oily Hand's Life with MGs||
Some despicable low life deprived an owner of his pride and joy. Taken from Anglesey in North Wales, this beautiful car is all original with only 18,100 miles on the clock.
If anybody knows the whereabouts of this car or has any information about its theft, please contact me or the police.
The Old Speckled Hen Run is one of the three big runs organised by the Tyne Tees Centre of the MG Car Club.
We were roped in to do the signing on so we had an early start to the day. Signing on was great as we met everybody and put some names to faces. How long my memory banks will hold those names is another question.
The start was at the Windmill Hotel on the A19 and the run was about 100 miles, ending at Raby Castle, which is about 15 miles away as the crow flies.
The weather was kind to us and we had a great run. I don't think anybody had any problems on the run but one MGB had a slight issue of a split fuel pipe when setting off for home. This was soon fixed by using a short length of the radiator overflow pipe to replace the damaged bit.
We also used the day for a trial of a new camcorder, which turned out not too bad. I think some form of mount is needed as Pam said she had a hard time keeping it steady. I'm not sure if that was down to her or my driving.
After having our cream tea I took a couple of a short runs in the TA for people who wanted to see what it was like to travel in. It's a bit bouncy.
All in all it was a super day and a huge thanks go to Barrie and Sheila Hope for all their hard work in organising the run.
Hi, I'm Owen and I've been having fun with MGs since 1970, starting with my 1937 MGTA. Since then I've had three Y types and a couple of Z Magnettes. I now have a 1971 MGB GT along with the TA and my wife and I are still having fun
