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, MG Midget, MG 1100/1300, MGC, 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.

Adrian GoodenoughThe only serious fire we had at the factory was when we had a new paint oven installed, it could take about 15 cars but had many problems with it and before the cars had paint repairs and entering the oven all the light lenses had to be removed or they would melt. One day Fred Hayes who was on the end of the oven started shouting at us as there was smoke pouring out,Fred had a long pole which he used to pull the cars out the end of the oven as they were to hot to handle, we managed to pull one car out but the smoke was to thick and acrid ( by this time the fire alarms were ringing out, at the other end of the oven was Bill Purbrick that was spraying the cars, he was also a works fireman who dropped everything and ran down to the fire station completely unaware the location of the fire but was back up in just a couple of minutes with the rest of the fire fighters, by this time it was a very serious fire as tyres were exploding so we then evacuated all of B/Block we then waited for the Abingdon and Didcot fire brigade, there was five cars completely burnt out and about another ten badly damaged but repairable, we were all expecting the fuel tanks to explode but lucky they didn't but the fuel lines burnt out and when the fuel ignited just created more white smoke which then combined with the rest of the cars burning, the paint shop and finishing shop was in complete black out which was very frightening,the MG firefighters were very brave as most of them had never seen a fire of this magnitude and although lost a few cars no one was hurt and the oven was running again in two weeks,

Adrian GoodenoughTheir was one retained firefighter at the 'Gs' Cyril Cox and he had the freedom of the factory also a lot of time on his hands, he spent a lot of time with his horses which he kept in a field next to the main compound and used his bike to get around the site plus to take hay/feed to his horses, he also wore a pair of overalls to keep his trousers clean, one day on his visits to feed his horses the weather wasn't good and by the time he got back to the fire station he was quite wet but luckily he had an electric fire in the station so he took off his wet clothes and hung them on the back of a chair close to the fire to dry out,he then left the station and walked across to A/ block and went into the canteen for a tea and something to eat while in the canteen the fire alarm sounded and by the he got back to the fire station he could see there was a lot of commotion outside the station and to discover the station was on fire, this was in the sixties and up until then this was the only fire we had at the 'Gs' The next day Cyril had to go down to the personal dept to explain himself but had to pass the production lines on the way, as soon as he was spotted by the workforce on the lines they all started to sing and cheer and someone offered him some old overalls, he also had the same treatment when he walked through B/block Cyril was never allowed to forget the day he set the fire station on fire,
