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.

Our Video of the Week this week is not just a single video but an entire channel. The MG Cars Channel was created by of David Shelburne of Shelburn Films. In David’s words, “there are lots of individual MG videos out there, on YouTube and others. But it’s not easy to find the specific videos you are interested in. What I am trying to do is create one place where people can go and find a large variety of MG videos to choose from.” This is the place to find videos about all things MG. You can become familiar with the history of MG by learning about the various models produced through the years; start with “The First MG,” to learn that it was not the car we call “Old Number One.” Follow the link at the end of each video to find […]

Over the next few days, I will be posting some pictures and impressions from the Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance that took place this past weekend in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Most of these pictures, such as the ones of the beautiful MGA that you see below, were taken by Leigh Gill of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This 1960 MGA Twin Cam Coupe is one of only 48 built in 1958 but not titled until 1960. It is owned by Bob and Lynn Wilson of Lisle, Illinois. Uncovered in garage in Wisconsin, where it had been carefully stored for 25 years, this beautiful car required only time, patience, love and a bit of touch-up paint to return it to its original charm. Due to its highly unmolested nature, this car serves as a great example for those seeking orginality. Stay tuned for more […]
