Default Britfest

On Saturday my MG club, The Central New Jersey MG Club, put on the annual "Britfest". Generally we get about 125 to 150 British cars to show, but because the weather was threatening we only got about 50 to 60 cars this year. Still, it was a good show with some beautiful British cars. Lots of MGs, Triumphs, Austin Healys, Lotus and even a Morgan. We even had 4 new McLarens. This year's featured marque was the Austin Healy 3000 and we had a few beautiful examples.


This one was probably the most beautiful. It's for sale. The owner is asking $65,000

My Favorites

Of course, we got a lot of MGBs

And some of my favorite Triumphs


Hopefully, the weather will be better next year and we'll get more cars. I hope to have my TD running by then and I'll show it.

Why would you drive something so primitive as an MG-TD when you could be rolling in the comfort of a modern car like an MGA?

Looks like a really fun gathering.

We usually get about 10 MGAs but this year not one MGA came. The weather was threatening. It was overcast and it rained the night before. Luckily the rain held off until after the gathering. We were dissappointed that more cars didn't show and at the same time delighted by how many did.

They both have MG DNA. I've always wanted a TD.
