Welcome to the North American MGB Register

The North American MGB Register (NAMGBR) is an international MG car club serving the needs of the MGB, MGC, MG Midget, MG 1100/1300 and Post Abingdon MG owners, across North America.
Our club is run and elected by the membership for the membership. We are a registered 501(c)7 Not-For-Profit corporation and have been established since 1990.
We hold an annual convention and car show in North America in the summer each year and this is hosted by one of our Affiliate Chapters highlighting the chapter’s local area. Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in October of each year at the location of the following year’s convention & car show. All members are invited to attend the AGM.
There are also NAMGBR sanctioned and supported regional events which may enable you to get to a NAMGBR show in the event that the annual convention is too far for you to travel to.
mgdriver-logoWe publish our world famous The MG Driver magazine six times a year in full color.
Our magazine features updates from the officers, member submitted articles on technical matters, projects or trips, reports on local and regional car shows and events, technical and troubleshooting advice by our Technical Coordinator, the renowned John Twist and an update on upcoming events.
Within the overall club, there are specific sub-registers that support specific models of MGs that collectively make up NAMGBR. We also have some specialty registers for certain unique categories of MGs.
MGB, MG Midget, MG 1100/1300, MGC, and Post Abingdon MGs, such as the MGF, MG TF and RV8 all have a register, with a register head focussed on that group of MGs. There are also specialty registers for: the MGB Limited Editions, the early “Pull Handle” MGBs, 1967 MGB GT Specials, MGB V8’s and the 1974 1/2 MGBs. See the Registers page for all the details and register head contact information.
As an individual member there are many benefits of membership which starts at just $30 per year. You can find all the details and specifics on the Join Us page.
We also have Affiliate Chapters/Clubs and the requirements to be an affiliate chapter are fairly simple and in return the affiliated club gets great benefits such as event and director and officer liability insurance. Start with the Join Us page and also see the Resources page as well for all the details.
Resources – lots of them! As in individual member you’ll benefit from things like the MG Driver magazine, Mutual Aid Directory (MAD), Service Recommendations, NAMGBR Facebook Group and if you’re not a member in a local club, we can help you find one.
As an Affiliate Chapter you can be covered by the umbrella event liability and director and officer insurance policy. Additionally we’ll direct new members to your club if they are not currently members.

Great shot.

I once had 6 folks in mine on the way to the movies.

I think that's a Ford Tempo at the bottom (and maybe an Escort on the right) making this the 80's.

Me, too. Parade style!

Looks like a spitfire to me

I agree. Looks like a Triumph Spit.

Looks like a mk3 spitfire and what is with the 80's escort?

Got the new top installed!

I need to do the same on my 73 but have not been home long enough. The top has been in the garage in a box since I got back from Louisville last year.

Keep leather or vinyl looking new with this (no, not a salesman...just a very satisfied consumer). Just ordered more!!

I need the roof frame and cover replaced. Any thoughts on cost!

I assume you did it yourself. With how many assistants and was there any prior experience? How many hours?

I have one in a box, that came with the car. From LBC or Moss - at least 5 years old in the box. So I'm thinking - a sunny August day to enable stretching. Thoughts?

Nice!!!

Looks good, that is a chore for sure!

Maybe I should host a tech session, with plenty of coffee, pop, and donuts - then explain what needs to be done.

On my next top I'll be using a spray adhesive instead of contact cement, much more forgiving...

Good idea. I like 3M spray adhesive best.

I have a complete brand new frame with new header & I have a used top with frame in good condition available for sale

Walked a new MGB owner through some basic maintenance today...lubing front end...driveshaft and parking brake...adjusting rear brakes...checking fluid levels of shocks. None of my 1/2" drive extensions would work with his differential, so until I can make a tool...we left that for later. It was not broken...we did not fix it. ... See MoreSee Less

Good for you. This is often all it takes for someone to be able to do the everyday maintenance that just isn't done on modern cars. Maybe something we should think about doing as club events.

As for the socket- I had to have a piece of 1/2" square stock milled down something like 0.020 to make a little tool for getting the rear diff plug out.

We had a special drain plug wrench which had al different size ends that fitted male and female plugs, think it was made by a company called Melco.

I got a piece of square stock about 3 inches long and 7/16th's square at the one of the big chain hardware stores. One end fits in a 8 point socket and the other end fit the drain plug.
