A trip to the mother country...

Many years ago, and through a mutual affection for MG’s, Jim began a long lasting friendship with a British gentleman. As a result we’ve been fortunate to visit him and his wife at their home in the United Kingdom. On a recent trip we had the opportunity to stop in at Kimber House - headquarters of the MG Car Club of the United Kingdom in Abingdon!  We were graciously welcomed by Colin Grant, Deputy Editor of Safety Fast.  He showed us around and chatted about the factory history and about the cars (there were a couple of nice ones inside the building).  In their store/museum they maintain a display of patches from MG organizations all over whose members visit. Bob Lavezzoli provided us with a great Connecticut MG Club patch to add to their display. Just as we were leaving we noticed a room set up with chairs and refreshments.  We mentioned that it looked like a “party,” and were delighted to learn that later that day a group of Girl Scouts was coming to learn about the cars and their history.  How about that… Girl Scouts and Little British Cars!

And here is a photo of our Club patch in the display in England! Looks good.
