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.

The Boston Area MG Club is once again pleased to announce our 9th year of British Car Days at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Space is now available for this limited registration, high energy, show at New England's premier tourist and family-friendly destination! On Saturday, August 27nd, we will be holding our ever-popular People's Choice Awards Show. Car owners can recieve trophies and prizes based upon the voting of the public spectators! This is a fun time to "sell" your car and interact with an enthusiastic audience. Everyone gets into the act and it's a day of fun, sun and prizes. Bring your best and take home a trophy! Do you have something special or interesting?.....Come down and show it off to a public that is interested, interactive and can't get enough of these great machines. Experience the thrill of showing off your car right in the shadow of Boston's historic landmark and steps away from the Freedom Trail, the waterfront, not to mention all the great shopping and food. It is an experience like no other. The small number of exhibitors guarantees that you won't get lost in the crowd, but space is limited, so mark your calendars and register now. Who knows...you just might take home a trophy! We have waived the registration this year and will be collecting donations for Autism Speaks. Come down, show off your car and support a good cause. ** cars must queue up on Merchants row between 8am and 8:30am. Once the gate closes, no cars will be allowed onto the marketplace. No exceptions. No early departure. Register - use 'tickets' link to register. Limited Space!!!! Registration will automatically close once the spaces are gone. IF YOU REGISTER BUT CAN NOT MAKE IT.

I am looking at two 1974 MGBs that both need restored. The seller wants $6 - 7K each. The bodies are in good shape; yet, both cars need a full paint jobs, some interior work & new tops. When finished - what would these two 1974 MGBs be worth, i.e. - is the project worth it if I plan to sell both cars or keep one? ... See MoreSee Less

Ray FranksChrome bumper? Worth the asking price if they just need a little bit of detailing. How much of the needed heavy lifting can you do yourself? If you've got to farm out a lot of the work, you'll never get your money back. This is IMHO, of course, your results may vary.....

Danny ThomasonThat's a lot of money for cars needing restored. That doesn't leave much room for profit after you restore it.

Padre MorganDo you have 10- 20k depending on mechanicals to restore them

Ian ChristopherPost some pictures of the cars. You will get a little bit better info. At 6-7k a piece needing paint jobs and interior work, they are a bit over priced.

Timothy GaffneyBuy a finished car for $6-$8,000 Parts alone will cost 2-15,000 if you restore

Josh DiminoAgreed that is too much. You can get into a restoration with minimal to no rust for 2k-5k depending on your timing. I would hold off. Good deals will pop up in the next two months as the weather cools down - people want to clear out space before winter often sell at the best price of the year. That and springtime when they want to make room too

Steve AyersI have a nice car I'm asking 8k for. You can get in it and drive anywhere. If you're not buying something like that it's not worth it to me.

Candi Dehart$1000-2000 tops each. He is asking to much. Restoration is expensive even if you do everything yourself.

Ted LibertiThanks Candi & all Can do my own work re: body, paint, interior & tops, but makes sense to remember to just consider "buying the best car and restore it yourself. You won't make money, but you'll rescue a great car." Good point to wait until season drops off & inventory comes on line as people sell unneeded cars - many thanks!!

Joseph KausseYou have to love the car, for whatever personal reason, to spend that much money and the more than the cost of it to restore, it. I just passed on a very collectible car that was owned by a friend that passed away as the cost of the car and the cost to restore about 15k more than what I can buy one ready to go.

Bud Osbourne$6K to $7K is about what you'd pay for a pretty decent, running & driving B. Sure, the very early ones are bringing a bit more than that, with pristine examples commanding $20K these days. But, if they are chrome bumper '74s, that need paint & interiors & tops, they probably aren't worth more than $3K - $4K tops, assuming they don't need ANY sheet metal work.

Jim DeatschTed, you have stars in your eyes. Buy a nice car for 6K and drive it.

Alex KwantenNot worth it. Even if you had to ship a nice car from a rust free climate, you could still get a perfectly good, usable, even cosmetically nice car for $6K on the west coast, plus shipping.

Ron PizerIf you get he cars for free and you spend your money wisely and don't expect to get paid for your labor, you will only loose only 50% of what you have spent. This is the absolute truth and I am not being a smart ass. But he hobby is a lot of fun.

Ted LibertiThank you again to all for the very high quality feedback & advice. I do enjoy the cars as we had MGBs & TRs growing up in the 70s/80s & I enjoy most all Brit cars. I very much enjoy MGB GTs & may have to keep an eye for one this fall as well. Ron's comment is golden, <<If you get he cars for free and you spend your money wisely and don't expect to get paid for your labor, you will only loose only 50% of what you have spent.

Wayne SchnellBought this 73 for $500 after it sat for 5 years. Tons of cleaning and scrapping rust. Fiddled with it enough to get it running rough, new clutch hydraulics, battery, electrical grounding etc. Now it's off to the mechanic to figure why two cylinders are not working. Good news there is 130-140 compression on each. After the mechanic... it will need new suspension, floor and rocker panels. Then a new top and interior panels. Are you getting the picture...... we all do this for an acceptable end product. There's is rarely profit if you decide to sell.
