|Oily Hand's Life with MGs
In the 1970s and early 1980s the MG Car Club Germany organised an event every three years in the delightful village of Hausach in the Black Forest. I found pictures and some notes of the 1979 event and I'm adding them to the new Hausach International MG Meetings page.
Do you ever wonder, sat at your computer, if you are the only one reading these ramblings of a slightly crazy Englishman with his MGs.
Fear not! You are one of many from across the world, 41 countries to be precise.
What an amazing thing this internet is, and what a brand the MG is that holds interest in so many places.
It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know that you are interested in our MG activities. I have no way of knowing who you are, but thank you for reading.
This blog is my story. I'm sure you must also have stories to tell and I will be only too happy to hear them. Please add a comment and introduce yourself.
In the meantime, have fun and try to keep between the hedges.
A couple of weeks ago the internal door handle on the 1971 MGB GT ceased to unlatch the locking mechanism and I had to wind down the window to use the external handle.
I eventually got round to investigating the problem and found that the latch assembly was broken. No problem, I'll buy a new one. A quick internet search revealed that they are about 200 quid!!!
A quick rethink and I found a second hand one on eBay for £24 including postage. I've just fitted it today and it works. All is well in my world again.
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
