MG ZS, 2021

The day I purchased my MG, I was like a kid on Xmas eve but it was even better when I picked it up as I was a very beside myself! I love my car!

MG3, 2021

I’ve only had her for a few months, and I’ve been lockdown the whole time, so our daily 5km drives to the beach and back have been the best! I can’t wait to take her on a long road trip to Adelaide.

MGB, 1970

Only one memory, impossible! It started with a dream, two years finding the right one and then experiencing the feeling my MGB better known by some as 'Making Grins Bigger'. Just driving a classic on a sunny day, roof down enjoying the humming from the exhaust and bystanders waving as you drive, yeah!

MG HS, 2021

Favourite memory: driving through puddles on a stormy night!

MGF, 1999

I’ve owned my MG-F since new, over the years I’ve really enjoyed this little MG roadster and it’s timeless design. Recently I converted my MGF to 100% electric, the first of it’s type in Australia. It’s always been a fun little roadster to drive and now it gets juiced up via solar at home.

MGB MKII and BL, 1968

Favourite memory: my first drive - through the forest to Grants Picnic Ground, Kallista. I restored my MGB myself having found it on Gumtree 5 years earlier.

Favourite memory: spending 5 years restoring my favourite car.

MGB MKII, 1969

MG Midget MK3,1967

My Midget was a 50th birthday present (total surprise) from my wife, my favourite memory was the first time I saw it coming around the corner on the back of a truck.

MGA Roadster, 1958

Driving of country roads, especially gravel or limestone roads like the car was built for.

MG TF, 1954

Peter rebuilt ‘Ruby’ over 11 years ago and we’ve had so many memorable moments going on MG Car Club runs over the years.

MG TC, 1948

Growing up as a Teenager I first saw an MG TC in a Car Yard for sale. I loved its sleek lines, a piece of art, it looked fast just sitting there and to this day it still has those proportions that make it worthy of belonging in an Art Gallery.

MGF, 2003

Cold crisp mornings and warm sunny days are ideal for taking the MG out for a run.

I had a yellow 1965 MGB when I was a teenager and subsequently crashed it. I had many memories of those good times. Forward eight years later and I am re-living that dream, having recently purchased a 1970 blue MGB. I am now somewhat older, possibly wiser, but living the dream!

I also have a teal blue 1970's MGB GT, which is such a cool and reliable little car. My favourite however is my 1959 MGA roaster in Brooklyn Green, pictured here

MGA Roadster, 1957

Favourite memory: Bringing it home for my wife as her first Mother’s Day gift in the early 80s but secretly knowing it was really for me! 40 years later and our children still love being in the MG as much as I do.

MGA Coupe, 1959

We bought the MGA Coupe from a deceased estate. It had been dismantled but the body shell had been repainted in the factory colour Mineral Blue. Peter spent many hours rebuilding it which was a labour of love but all the more difficult because he hadn’t pulled it apart. It was a great jigsaw puzzle.

MG Saloon, 2004

The last of the cars designed and built in England, the ZT Two Sixty has all the style and panache reflecting its true British heritage with all the power and legs of a lazy American V8, in this case the 4.6 litre single overhead cam Modular V8 as used in the Mustangs of the period. Awesome

MGB MKI (1962-1967), 1967

MGB MKI, 1967

We purchased this car back in June in Sydney. It was great until we attempted to drive her back to Adelaide via Broken Hill. Was doing well even managed a couple of laps around Mt Panorama. Unfortunately, we seized a bearing halfway and had it trucked home in the end. Bring on the engine rebuild :)

MGB MKI, 1963

First drive age 23, 28 yrs ago. The feeling of cornering, the whine of the transmission in second just before changing into third for the first time and the smell of warm oil. Love at first sight

MGB MKI, 1964

As a kid I always loved the shape and look of the MGB. My uncle had a beautiful red MGB when I was growing up and my Dad always used to tell me about the MGB's that he and Mum had before I was born. I knew when I was older and could afford one I had to have one. This black 1964 MGB was the first one.

MGF, 2003

Whilst many memories are still to be made, having the opportunity to park under a 747 I know will be one of the best.

MGY Racing, 1951

I bought the MGY in 1964 for 25 pounds (pre decimal currency), & drove it every day for several years until it was involved in an accident. Because of the damage, the body couldn't be repaired, so it was made into a racing special with a new aluminium body. I'm just so happy it's still alive.

MG6, 2013

Believe this was the first MG6 registered in Victoria. Very good & well appointed touring car, & tows my racing MG very well.

MGB, 1974

Favourite memory - being able to enjoy touring through every State in Australia over the past 15 years in a very reliable MGB! 

MGA Roadster 1500, 1956

From pole position at Mount Panorama to our beach holidays, my MG ZS has helped me rediscover my love of cruising.

MGA Roadster, 1960

MG HS, 2021

Removing the red cover and bow on the day I received my fabulous new car Molly!

MG ZS EV, 2020

Waking up, opening the garage door, jumping in the MG, applying a bit of choke, turning the key, pushing the starter button, listening to engine the fire up...brrmm, brrmm, brrmmm. Selecting reverse, backing into the street, selecting 1st gear and heading off into the sun.

MGB, 1969

Everywhere, everyone has a story; the MGF they rebuilt when they got their first job, the Midget they drove from England to Greece every Christmas, the time they fell in love not just with the car but with those who journeyed with them, all those forever moments; those are my favourite memories.

MG TD, 1951

The MG TD has provided a lot of fun over the years, none more so, when it takes full wet weather gear to wash the TD.

MG ZS EV, 2021

My favourite MG memory is receiving my new MG ZS EV and knowing I could cut my carbon footprint while travelling in style.

MG Magnette, 1958

When the family expands, so does the need to increase the number of seats in the roadster from 2 seats to 5 seats in the Magnette. This event was a club lunch, with the whole family in tow (after installing baby seat anchors in the rear seats to accommodate the baby capsule). Happy days.

MG Rolling Chasis, 1938

Sometimes the progress is slow, yet still time to display the rolling chassis at the club concours d'elegance. It receives a lot more critical attention as the work is inspected by the experts.

MG ZS EV, 2020

2 weeks after taking delivery of our EV, we decided to go on a road trip from Melbourne to Sydney, return. It was a case of check out the infrastructure in the early days of EV, and whether or not range anxiety is real or imagined.

Pre-War MG SA, 1936

2010 Peking to Paris Endurance Rally with club member John Hastie. We made it. Pic 2 Camping in Mongolia with another MG SA. Pic 3 Jerome and Xavier from the MG Club of France who came to our rescue in the last 2 days of the event and brought champagne. Merci. Incredible adventure.

Enjoying a ride in 1937 SA saloon!

My well travelled MGA parked by a water tank, at North Dandalup in Western Australia, during a glorious Spring day 100 Km run with 42 other classics.

MGA Roadster, 1958

My fondest memories was with my Grandfather, cheeky as he was, pa would toot the central located horn at ladies on the side of the road as we past the and then point at me as if I did it! He would also enjoy chatting to people at the lights in other cars because it was so easy to do in the MGA

MG3, 2021

This year I brought 'GRLKND' to life, a small charity reducing the national youth suicide rate. My best memories in my MG3 include morning drives to schools, buzzing with excitement. I've got the number plates to match, and roped my Mum into the MG3 life - family who drive together, strive together.

MG TD, 1953

Favourite memory: my 1953 TD on the first drive out after a 12 month overhaul and engine rebuild. I have owned and driven the TD for over 50 years, in the UK, Europe and now WA.

MGA Roadster 1500, 1959

I have always wanted an MGA so I am so thrilled to have been able to purchase this beautiful car recently. 

MG TB Special, 1939

I've been living with MGs all my life thanks to my dad's wacky interest in them. This car, a 1939 TB special in the style of the iconic 1934 MGK3, is his latest restoration and I love it. I'm allowed to drive it and take it on the race track. It is absolutely awesome!

Best MG RV8, 1995

What I love about my RV8 is that you can enjoy a luxury classic drive during the week and participate in Club sporty activities on the weekend.

MG TF, 2003

Favourite memory: picking up my MG TF and driving it from Sydney. Only has 26,500 kilometers on the clock.

MG RV8, 1995

MGB, 1964

My best memory would be on the 13th December 2010, the day I purchased my MGB from a gentleman in Bundaberg Queensland. I flew from Newcastle to pick it up. I drove to Brisbane on the first day and then the remainder to Newcastle the next, the car didn't miss a beat all the way!

MG TD Special, 1949

My MG TD special was re-bodied in aluminium by a Melbourne competitor in the late 60's. It has since been campaigned successfully at many circuits around Australia.

MG TC, 1948

My favourite MG memory is my grandfathers MG TC #4459 purchased in 1964 as a restoration project. It then passed to my father in the 90s, then to me in 2015 and eventually my daughter will be next. The story began in 1948, but it will never end. 

MG Midget, 1964

Favourite memory: touring the East Coast of Tasmania in my '64 Midget with my future wife. This was not long after a mammoth restoration, as the Midget is my first car and had been my daily driver for many years.

MGA Roadster 1500, 1958

I was running in a Super Sprint event at Tailem Bend Motorsport Park as part of the MG Challenge weekend. It was a glorious, blue sky, sunny day, the car was running beautifully, and I caught and passed my arch-rival, both of us in our MGA’s. 

MGPA, 1934

My best memory with our 1934 MGPA special is flying around the Victoria park street circuit in Adelaide at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival along side some classic open wheelers and other vintage race cars.

MGB Racing, 1964

I started taking part in competition driving 5 years ago. To date, the highlights have definitely have been taking part in Albany Classic Round, The Houses and Northam Flying Fifties. In my first year 2018, driving the Albany Classic regularity, I ‘won’ 2 of the races”. 

MG ZS, 2020

My favourite memory is from the day I drove it away from the car yard for the 1st time. It was so comfortable and had that new car smell.

MGY, 1949

Favourite memory: the joy of starting the car up for the first time after partially restoring it and enjoying the excitement it provided on its first drive!

MG TF, 1955

The MG TF. Was found as a barn find in the 1970s . Restoration to save the TF was commenced in 2010 and completed in 2011 . The car always draws a crowd when parked on a club run .

MG Midget, 1969

Refusing the historic plates, and choosing to enjoy this timeless beauty with others every day of the year! Wind in hair, conversations across coastlines, smiles and waves across every street corner and through every twisting beachside road - sharing the love and passion behind this magic machine!

MG TC, 1949

My best memories are still being made every time I take my beautiful old 49 TC out. Whether it’s an MG club meet up, giving her a DIY day spa detail, tinkering around under the bonnet, or just a Sunday drive around the Gold Coast hinterland with my little dog Leo as my passenger. I LOVE my TC!

MGA Roadster 1500, 1957

It was a fantastic spring day when we drove from Ballarat to Yandoit in Victoria last year. The old stone buildings at Yandoit reminded the MGA of being in England. On our return drive home we came through the small town of Dean. The MGA wanted it's photo taken in front of another great old building!

MG RV8, 1995

MG's turn heads no matter where you are. The look, the sounds for the smell are unique.

My favourite MG memory is taking my three children for their first ride in Ruby and opening the sunroof to hear their squeals of joy. Love at first sight.

MG HS, 2020

Favourite memory: picking up our family MG HS from Gold Coast MG. It has been a delight to drive and we will be looking at getting another new MG soon! The debate on which MG will be the tough decision. Either way, we will be back to meet the team to discuss. Just look at the beautiful front of our MG HS.

MG HS, 2020

I saw this bad boy on the highway. Since that moment I wanted to test drive. After doing so a month later, I felt this car's performance, style, features and price combined will awake even the laziest of mankind.

MGB MKII, 1971

I have a 1971 MGB Roadster, restored in 2000 with a full bare metal restoration. It is my pride and joy that I love taking out on club runs, providing it is dry weather. When I do take the car out it is usually with my passenger, a golden retriever. I also have an MG6, which is my daily drive.

MGB MKII and BL, 1968

Favourite Memory: Preparation to export my 1968 MGB to Australia when my wife and I emigrated from the UK in 2018. The car was tested for asbestos by a UKAS approved testing company. This resulted in the exhaust manifold being replaced. The car was picked up for shipping and delivered to our new home in Corlette NSW.

MG ZS EV, 2021

Love driving my ZS EV knowing I’m doing my little bit for the environment.

MGB MKI, 1964

It’s never too early to drive an MG. The grand kids just love my Mk I 1964 MGB. I bought this car nearly thirty years ago as a beat up paddock basher. It took me a few years of love and hard work to do a bare metal restoration to bring it to its present reliable condition.

MGF, 1997

I have owned my 1997 MGF VVC since 2003 and have enjoyed many years of successful competition and concourse wins (incl at Nat Meets). My car was the third MGF registered in NSW after their release in 1997, and I was surprised to find that it had been built on the 15th January, which is my birthday.

MGB MKII, 1970

In 1983 I bought a 1970 MG MGB Mk 11 in Primose Yellow and had a lot of work done to bring up it up to pristine condition including having it completely resprayed in a match perfect Primrose Yellow. Such a great roadster.

Favourite memory: getting together with MG Car Club friends at Rob Roy Hillclimb track which is operated by the Victorian MG Car Club.

My best memories are the eight or nine days tours with Sydney MG Car Club. Driving outback in our beautiful country. Wonderful friends visiting interesting venues and landmarks. MG memories that'll last a lifetime. What could be better?

MGA Roadster 1500, 1958

My favourite memory is when my dad and I restored this little beauty together. Now that my dad has passed away, every time I look or drive my MGA, wonderful memories come flooding back.

MG TC, 1948

Favourite memory: top down driving through the outer reaches of Sydney (Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains). Smelling the scents of the country side, sensing the cool air, feeling the wind and hearing the engine noises and feeling the road. Image 1 personifies all of this and shows my 93 year old father driving my 73 year old MG TC.

MG ZS T, 2021

Our favourite moment is getting the keys to our new MG ZST Essence and rolling out of the showroom in our new car. Our family has not had a new car for years.

MG ZST, 2021

My favourite memory was when I purchased the car and drove it home.

MG HS, 2021

I love driving my MG HS! So smooth to drive, so much space and the safety tech is amazing.

MGB MKII (1968- 1974), 1969

I was born into MG! But after 28 years, my best memory was at 40 my dad finally forgiving me for almost crashing his MG at 17 and finally getting to drive my (dads) car with him driving our other MGB down Yarra Valley with roof off, listening to road to nowhere. Now we have added a new MG3 to the family.

MGB Rubber Bumper Roadster (1975-1980), 1977

Favourite memory: opening the garage door on a sunny Saturday morning, warming up the 1800cc engine, stowing the soft roof behind the seats and deciding where to drive. One of my favourites is from the mountains to the lake to enjoy a picnic, then slowly make the way home in the afternoon.

MGB (racing), 1968

My favourite memory would be sharing my MGB with my son, Matthew, as we contested many hill climbs and super sprints with the car.

MG TC, 1948

MG TD, 1951

My favourite memory is driving my MGA along country roads in the area around the ACT with the top down and a line of MGs from the local Club strung out before me and in the rear view mirror.

I happened to be driving behind an MGA and an AH in Sydney one day. I immediately fell in love with the MGA. 4 years later, I was the proud owner of my Ivy.

There are just too many great memories in the Marque of Friendship to identify a single occasion.

MG TF, 1954

Winning motorkana events in Trangie 1961 beating supercharged MGA .

MG Midget, 1971

Bracing mid-winter runs up through the Adelaide Hills with roof down, the heater cranked up, the crackle of the exhaust on the overrun into a sweeping bend and your partner by your side. Can't think of a better way to spend a day!

MG3, 2020

I thought to myself, the MG has a sexy reputation. How am I going to give my new little MG3 the sex appeal of MGs in bygone days? New model (the car) old model (me). Was a tongue in cheek photo shoot and a load of fun, just like driving the cheeky little MG3 - lots of fun.

MG3, 2020

I’ve had my car for almost a year and have had so many amazing moments! I’ve driven Maggie all the way from Perth to Sydney and had so many great times along the way! I think my favourite moment was driving the Great Ocean Road. I always feel safe in my MG, even on such long drives. I love my car!

Supercharged MG TC Special, 1949

MG is the marque of friendship. Driving anywhere in a classic MG is pure joy and brings a smile to the face.

MG ZS, 2019

Our MG has taken us over 1,300kms to visit loved ones. The ZS didn’t skip a beat and we drove through a massive hail storm too!

MG TF (1500), 1955

Having rested in a shed for 37 years, this TF (1500) is the last of the famous T series cars and deserved to be given a new life. It is a regular on weekends-away and Club runs and always features at the Club displays.

MG ZS T, 2021

Favourite memory: the arrival of my black ZST Excite on a car carry to my house for delivery, and thinking is that really mine. Then taking the black beauty for the first drive and being amazed by the whole driving experience which keeps on getting better every time we drive. I’m in love!

MG HS, 2020

Our son arrived in the world and our car was born too. For us, 2 babies in year. That's how special this car is. We blessed this car the Korean way for safety, poured rice wine on the tyres. This car has already given us so many happy memories on road trips. Lucky us!

MG3, 2018

I was sitting in Maccas with friends when my phone rang: 'Kath you have won an MG!'
I thought it was a prank and hung up twice! My mum answered them on the 3rd call and IT was real, I had won an MG3 from John Hughes and had forgotten I entered a competition. UNREAL!

MG3, 2020

Favourite memory: picking up my brand new MG3!

MGA Roadster 1600 Mk11, 1962

I have just realised a 40 year dream. I fell in love with this beautiful little car in 1981 (MGA). I have been completely obsessed ever since. This year I managed to purchase my car......it's stunning and I couldn't be happier.

MG ZS, 2018

I bought my MG ZS in 2018. What I love about my SUV is it still looks ultra modern 3 years later. It also will look modern in 5 years time. I had a Nissan X-Trail before my MG and I thought that was my favourite car until I bought my MG. I have nicknamed my car JET because while it's a 1.5L, it runs.

MG ZS T, 2021

My favourite memory is the moment I picked my new baby from the show room floor! The shine, the big red bow - it was all so magical! The team at Cranbourne MG were fabulous and even allowed my dog to enjoy the experience with me since after all, the upgrade was for all the adventures we'd be going!

Pre-war MG Replica, 1925

This is our Replica of old Number 1 (1925). Restored by my Father in Law. It resides in Canberra with his family and is used regularly.

Having received my new MG ZS EV in lockdown, with a 5km travel zone, it was awesome on Tuesday to have to drive out for work. Roof open, sun shining … fabulous fun!

MGB MKI (1962-1967), 1963

My first MGB. Photographed in December 1965 as I prepared to visit my girlfriend who subsequently became (and still is) my wife.
