The MGCC Y Type Register Committee
The Y Type Register is a register of the MG Car Club. It is run by a committee, all of whom are volunteers and are unpaid. All members of the committee freely give of their time, and expertise with the express aim of, hopefully, assisting and helping MG Y Type owners worldwide. Please do not be disappointed if we do not respond as quickly as you would like, however, please be assured that we are not ignoring you.

I owned a YB back in 1966 for a couple of years and then a ZA. I have had the pleasure of my YT since 2001 and I bought back my YB in 2013.
Having fully retired in 2009 I answered the Register’s call for a new chairman and am enjoying the ride.
I also keep myself busy as a Remap Engineer and I am a Tree Warden in our village.
Granddading and Gloucester Rugby together with the house and garden more than fill up the rest of my time.

Jerry Birkbeck. Tel: +44 (0)1926 424053
Have owned 2 YA’s before acquiring a YT in 2009.
Although I always wanted a TC I have owned a TA for twelve years which is unoriginal but well used and much loved.
My other interests include fixtures secretary of a local rugby club, playing very poor tennis, acting in murder mysteries, steam and model railways and not least a close involvement with my family.
I suppose I would describe myself as a semi-retired planner and landscape architect – though increasingly more of the retired now!

We have owned our YT since 1971 when Mike bought it in Dublin while working there. Sue learnt to drive in it a few years later and it has had a few different incarnations over the years.
It is now fully restored and we usually get to all the main Y Register events each year, although fitting in some canal boating, family and home commitments means that we don’t make too many other gatherings.

I had a YA in 1969, which I really liked but which eventually needed repairs
that I couldn’t afford. I donated it for spares to someone who was
rebuilding his Y type. To my shame I can’t remember either its registration
number or chassis number.
I bought my current YA in July 2006 and I have enjoyed driving it and
keeping it maintained ever since. I have organised some Y Type Autumn Runs
in Bedfordshire and last year a trip to the Loire Valley.
I’m still working and my favourite leisure activity is a long meal with all
the family round the table eating, drinking, talking and laughing.
