|Oily Hand's Life with MGs
It's a cold snowy day today so I decided to skive off going to work. I've spent some time in the warm adding a new page which gives some information on a very unique electric Vauxhall
Last night saw about 50 members of the MG Car Club Tyne Tees Centre gather together for the annual dinner dance and prize presentation at the Gibside Hotel.
A night of good food and drink in great company with some gyrations on the dancefloor later.
Nobody was more surprised than Pam & I to find that I had won the Enthusiast Trophy and Pam won the Lady Enthusiast Trophy. We only did the events to enjoy ourselves but the trophys are a bonus.

The 76 BGT is in the bodyshop, so apart from getting my spare Rostyles blasted and powder coated and cleaning up the brightwork there isn't much progress there.
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
