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.
Just visit the Resources page for more details.

When buying a new convertible top, what material do you prefer and why?

I live in Texas, have a 68 B daily driver, and I've already lined up an experienced, professional installer. I've also already decided on a "Zip" window.

So, what do you suggest?

A) Traditional Vinyl
B) Everflex Vinyl
C) StayFast Cloth, (is this also known as "Mohair Canvas" or are the two different?)

I like the look of the cloth/canvas tops but have heard negative feedback about the difficulties keeping them clean.

Looking forward to your comments.

Steve NaertHad new black StayFast top installed on '77B several years ago at John Twist's University Motors, the top they recommended. Folds easier than the vinyl and doesn't stick together like the vinyl did when it was rolled up. No problems at all keeping it clean using RaggTop convertible top protectant (www.amazon.com/Raggtopp-02141-RaggTopp-Farbric-Protectant/dp/B0002KKIUK). Definitely go with the zippered rear window.

Robert RushingI've always liked Robbins tops. I've had great luck with them - well except when the massive hail storm punched holes through it...
