MGCC Lincolnshire Poachers Concours – 16th August 2015
Only two Y types at MGCC Lincolnshire Poachers Concours on 16th August 2015. Both cars won prizes in their class. Although I am sure Chris Pick would be too modest to admit it, but his superb YA was the worthy winner of the Peter Best Insurance Premier Award for best in show. There were many MGs of all classes dating back to the 1930s so this was a very creditable result. My own YB came third in the Elite Class as previous class winners are upgraded to this higher level. Both these Ys attracted lots of interest, it always amazes me the number of people that say that their Father, Uncle, Vicar, Grandad etc owned one back in the day when you consider how few were built between 1947 and 1953!

My name is Robert Taylor, at the beginning of June this year, I bought YB0640 UMG 804, from Andrew Maxey. The car was meant to be a prop, we, that’s my wife and I, are into the vintage scene, be it fashions, dances or re-enactment events, even bric-a-brac for the home. The car has joined the valve driven wireless, the Wurlitzer juke box, the GPO landline telephone, one of those finger dial contraptions, that doesn’t have touchtone technology, and a whole plethora of other stuff. The pre-war push bikes are always a talking point. We go to retro weekend events like the Twinwood Festival. Google it if you haven’t heard of it.

Owning a vintage classic is something new to us, and as such, we have started going to one or two classic shows. At first I thought that it was the car that was turning heads, but later realised that no-one gets dressed up in a vintage double breasted suit, completing the outfit with two tone shoes and fedora hat. Fancy upstaging a classic MG, who would have thought?

Within a day or two of ownership my wife started calling the car: “Jessica.” Why Jessica? I asked her. “Because,” she replied, “like her famous namesake, she’s a redhead, with a great body!”

Amongst many other events, commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day, we were invited to take Jessica along to Poole Quay for 1940’s event. Our 1952 car was given licence to attend because it had been designed in 1937. Or maybe, having many military vehicles, they were short of one or two war time civilian cars. Whilst there, we bumped into an old photographer friend who had previously photographed my wife’s retirement party. He commented on our car, and then asked if he could drape a model or two over it. The girls were there to promote a 1940’s fashion parade. Of course he could, enclosed are some of the car and some with the girls. I hope you enjoy them.

Kind regards,

Robert Taylor.

Peter Vielvoye went on this run which was held in aid of the St Rose’s School Stroud. About 500 cars at the show. vielvoyewheelnuts                     YvetteAber02YvetteAber03

On the 3rd February 2013 hundreds of people took to the streets to mark the 50th Anniversary of an historical Welsh Language Protest in Aberystwyth. Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru producted Y Bont (The Bridge) around the town re-enacting events. Yvette ( UML 237 ) was invited along with 4 other cars to participate and we were parked opposite the Post Office and really felt part of the production.
