Time Machine Matchup

by Calvin Sikstrom My MGB Time Machine looked great next to an Austin Mini at the Show-and-Shine. Main Street was closed, and a volunteer helped me back into a spot. More than a hundred cars lined both sides of the street for several blocks. The sky was clear.The sun was hot. Cold Lake’s Main Street…

What a Ride it’s Been

by John Bures I brought this car to the states over 50 years ago. Drove it up and down the LA freeway with Al Moss. But my little story starts before then. I loved English cars and wanted to travel through Europe. In 1962, MGTCs were not expensive in the UK. As soon as I…

Yes. In This Car. Part III

By Roy Locock So far, if you’re just now joining my MG Midget journey, I’ve traveled from Oxford, England, across Europe, through Iran, Pakistan and from the Himalayas to the south of India.

Reviving a Storybook Hero

By Jeremiah Lancaster I’m having a hard time remembering details of that dark period of time when our MG family did not have an MG. But I remember clearly how it ended.

“Yes. In This Car.”

By Roy Locock I am a traveler, a gypsy, nomad, drifter or any of the names given to people who feel they don’t have roots. I have always been this way. I am curious. I want to know what’s over the next hill, and then the next. Between my teens and my sixties I held…

Nineteen Again

By John Russell The 1930 Ford Model A pickup truck sat in the woods, surrounded by trees, its canvas roof hanging like Spanish moss. I had put a lot of time into my brother’s 1928 Model A pickup—he could drive and I had no license, being too young. But I wanted my own. “Would $50…
