The Gathering of the Faithful (GOF) was a term coined in the mid-1960s. The intention of a GOF was, and remains to this day, a gathering to bring together experienced and novice MG owners and enthusiasts to share Technical and Parts information. This will be the 53rd annual gathering of MG enthusiasts in the South. The Car show is not so much a competition but an opportunity for MG owners to show off their Pride and Joy. No matter if your MG is a basket case, a work in progress, your daily driver, or a Trailer Queen it will be most welcome. The Information sharing feature is the reason for a GOF. The fun, the comradery, an excellent resort as a base of operations, makes it a fine long weekend. A GOF-South is the premier annual MG event in Florida […]

Raymond Costa attending this year’s MG GOF West and has sent in the following report … If you are a fan of all things MG, Delevan Wisconsin was the place to be between June 27 and June 30 this year. Gatherings of the Faithful, or GOFs, are regional get-togethers for owners of MG cars. Originally conceived as gatherings for 1955 and older MG cars, more modern MGs are welcome if you can call a car that is no newer than thirty-eight years old “modern.” This year’s event was sponsored by the Vintage MG Car Club of Chicago. This GOF Central included the annual gathering of the North American MMM Register, an organization dedicated to preserving sporting MGs made before 1936, and many of these jewels arrived from as far away as Denver, Atlanta, and Alabama.
