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.

I think the B, C, and BV8 were the last of the MGs.

Yea, l've heard people refer to the MGB as a modern MG. progress marches on.

This not a mg 😂

Are these comments from people who have never driven a TF or RV8?

So why didn't this work? The mission statement would have been pretty simple, to win back the roadster market they would need to build a car that was as good or better than the Miata that could be sold at a competitive price. I gather it didn't make one or both of these goals?

Overheard in the Nanjing conference room: "MG factory? I thought he said it was an MSG factory . . ."

The MGF was a good little sports car and could have sold well in this country. There are lots of stories as to why MG didn't try to bring it over here and some might actually be true. I think the real reason was the company was under capitalized and didn't have the funds to make a major move like re-entering the North American market.

The 3 position switch should be labeled Dim, Flicker, and Smolder. (Don't let the smoke out of the wires)

I know Lucas hasn't improved - they don't exist anymore. They got sold off piece by piece to various suppliers (wiring went to Sumitomo, Delphi bought the last standing piece - Lucas Diesel Systems).

I tied down my dash board yesterday as one of my final tasks for my re-assembly, and carefully have been moving wiring harness's into place. I ran the B about 50 miles on Monday, and will have to take her back out today and see if I pulled, or anything came loose during re-assembly. No more high current stuff running thru switches - I added relays for HIGH & low beams, horns, and cooling fans 🙂 Still chasing what appears to be a ground issue on drivers headlight however - time to re-crimp connections and add some connector anti-corrorsion/anti-oxident gel...

I rewired my car with an Advance Autowire kit. It's one of the best investments I made on my car. When I took my old harness out and cut the blue wrapping for inspection, there were 5 adjoining wires that had gotten hot enough to burn the insulation off. It's a wonder the smoke never released.

Not the wires fault, short or overload cause, 60 years of repairing, restoring British cars, weak amperage, maybe, but the best wiring coding system of any cars, same code from Austin to Rolls, try an Italian car a different code every day.

Lucas: The unwitting inventor of the intermittant wiper . . .

Never had a problem!

My MGB is 50 years old and the electrical system works great. The key is that these are old cars and they do need maintenance. I cleaned the grounds and replaced almost all of the sleeves and cleaned bullet ends.

OR, fog lamps when there's no fog!

Good idea .

I like hi-beams when I am in my MGB. Shines right over the top

I mounted 2 Lucas driving lights on my 72 Honda 600 many years ago (still have them). Believe me, they'll make someone dim their brights VERY quickly!

I used a Cibie Oscar.
