Favourite memory: I love my MG3 and driving over to see my friends at Bronte Beach. Looking forward to cruising down to the beach again in summer and loading up my MG3 with the picnic, sun block and towels.
MGB MKII and BL (1968- 1974), 1968
Favourite Memory: Preparation to export my 1968 MGB to Australia when my wife and I emigrated from the UK in 2018. The car was tested for asbestos by a UKAS approved testing company. This resulted in the exhaust manifold being replaced. The car was picked up for shipping and delivered to our new home in Corlette NSW.
MG ZS EV, 2021
Love driving my ZS EV knowing I’m doing my little bit for the environment.
MGB MKI (1962-1967), 1964
It’s never too early to drive an MG. The grand kids just love my Mk I 1964 MGB. I bought this car nearly thirty years ago as a beat up paddock basher. It took me a few years of love and hard work to do a bare metal restoration to bring it to its present reliable condition.
I have owned my 1997 MGF VVC since 2003 and have enjoyed many years of successful competition and concourse wins (incl at Nat Meets). My car was the third MGF registered in NSW after their release in 1997, and I was surprised to find that it had been built on the 15th January, which is my birthday.
MGB MKII, 1970
In 1983 I bought a 1970 MG MGB Mk 11 in Primose Yellow and had a lot of work done to bring up it up to pristine condition including having it completely resprayed in a match perfect Primrose Yellow. Such a great roadster.
MG ZS, 2018
Favourite memory: driving out of the dealership and showing it off to my parents, which made them buy one as well. Mine is black and dad has a blue one!
MGA Roadster 1600, 1960
Favourite memory: touring Europe and NZ in the MGA. I've done it twice now, and looking forward to the next one in 2025!
MG TC, 1948
I have had MGs since I was 18. My first MG was a red 1948 MG TC. 50 odd years later, I still have one in concourse condition. It is supercharged with a 1952 period Judson supercharger.
MG HS, 2020
We love Big Red! Comfortable and easy to drive, and it gets lots of attention!
MG racing, 1972
Favourite memory: getting together with MG Car Club friends at Rob Roy Hillclimb track which is operated by the Victorian MG Car Club.
MGB MKI, 1967
My best memories are the eight or nine days tours with Sydney MG Car Club. Driving outback in our beautiful country. Wonderful friends visiting interesting venues and landmarks. MG memories that'll last a lifetime. What could be better?
MGA Roadster 1500, 1958
My favourite memory is when my dad and I restored this little beauty together. Now that my dad has passed away, every time I look or drive my MGA, wonderful memories come flooding back.
MG TC, 1948
Favourite memory: top down driving through the outer reaches of Sydney (Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains). Smelling the scents of the country side, sensing the cool air, feeling the wind and hearing the engine noises and feeling the road. Image 1 personifies all of this and shows my 93 year old father driving my 73 year old MG TC.
MG ZS T, 2021
Our favourite moment is getting the keys to our new MG ZST Essence and rolling out of the showroom in our new car. Our family has not had a new car for years.
MG ZST, 2021
My favourite memory was when I purchased the car and drove it home.
MG HS, 2021
I love driving my MG HS! So smooth to drive, so much space and the safety tech is amazing.
MGB MKII (1968- 1974), 1969
I was born into MG! But after 28 years, my best memory was at 40 my dad finally forgiving me for almost crashing his MG at 17 and finally getting to drive my (dads) car with him driving our other MGB down Yarra Valley with roof off, listening to road to nowhere. Now we have added a new MG3 to the family.
MGB Rubber Bumper Roadster (1975-1980), 1977
Favourite memory: opening the garage door on a sunny Saturday morning, warming up the 1800cc engine, stowing the soft roof behind the seats and deciding where to drive. One of my favourites is from the mountains to the lake to enjoy a picnic, then slowly make the way home in the afternoon.
MGB (racing), 1968
My favourite memory would be sharing my MGB with my son, Matthew, as we contested many hill climbs and super sprints with the car.
MG TD, 1951
My best memory is being driven in an MG by my Uncle when I was about 8 to an air show where I got to “fly” a Spitfire and meet Battle of Britain pilots. I was given an officers hat which I wore when driving with the roof down through the country lanes.
MGA Roadster, 1960
My favourite memory is driving my MGA along country roads in the area around the ACT with the top down and a line of MGs from the local Club strung out before me and in the rear view mirror.
MGA Roadster, 1959
I happened to be driving behind an MGA and an AH in Sydney one day. I immediately fell in love with the MGA. 4 years later, I was the proud owner of my Ivy.
MGF (F and TF ), 2002
There are just too many great memories in the Marque of Friendship to identify a single occasion.
MG TF, 1954
Winning motorkana events in Trangie 1961 beating supercharged MGA .
MG Midget, 1971
Bracing mid-winter runs up through the Adelaide Hills with roof down, the heater cranked up, the crackle of the exhaust on the overrun into a sweeping bend and your partner by your side. Can't think of a better way to spend a day!
I thought to myself, the MG has a sexy reputation. How am I going to give my new little MG3 the sex appeal of MGs in bygone days? New model (the car) old model (me). Was a tongue in cheek photo shoot and a load of fun, just like driving the cheeky little MG3 - lots of fun.
I’ve had my car for almost a year and have had so many amazing moments! I’ve driven Maggie all the way from Perth to Sydney and had so many great times along the way! I think my favourite moment was driving the Great Ocean Road. I always feel safe in my MG, even on such long drives. I love my car!
Supercharged MG TC Special, 1949
MG is the marque of friendship. Driving anywhere in a classic MG is pure joy and brings a smile to the face.
MG ZS, 2019
Our MG has taken us over 1,300kms to visit loved ones. The ZS didn’t skip a beat and we drove through a massive hail storm too!
MG TF (1500), 1955
Having rested in a shed for 37 years, this TF (1500) is the last of the famous T series cars and deserved to be given a new life. It is a regular on weekends-away and Club runs and always features at the Club displays.
MG ZS T, 2021
Favourite memory: the arrival of my black ZST Excite on a car carry to my house for delivery, and thinking is that really mine. Then taking the black beauty for the first drive and being amazed by the whole driving experience which keeps on getting better every time we drive. I’m in love!
MG HS, 2020
Our son arrived in the world and our car was born too. For us, 2 babies in year. That's how special this car is. We blessed this car the Korean way for safety, poured rice wine on the tyres. This car has already given us so many happy memories on road trips. Lucky us!
I was sitting in Maccas with friends when my phone rang: 'Kath you have won an MG!'
I thought it was a prank and hung up twice! My mum answered them on the 3rd call and IT was real, I had won an MG3 from John Hughes and had forgotten I entered a competition. UNREAL!
Favourite memory: picking up my brand new MG3!
MGA Roadster 1600 Mk11, 1962
I have just realised a 40 year dream. I fell in love with this beautiful little car in 1981 (MGA). I have been completely obsessed ever since. This year I managed to purchase my car......it's stunning and I couldn't be happier.
MG ZS, 2018
I bought my MG ZS in 2018. What I love about my SUV is it still looks ultra modern 3 years later. It also will look modern in 5 years time. I had a Nissan X-Trail before my MG and I thought that was my favourite car until I bought my MG. I have nicknamed my car JET because while it's a 1.5L, it runs.
MG ZS T, 2021
My favourite memory is the moment I picked my new baby from the show room floor! The shine, the big red bow - it was all so magical! The team at Cranbourne MG were fabulous and even allowed my dog to enjoy the experience with me since after all, the upgrade was for all the adventures we'd be going!
Pre-war MG Replica, 1925
This is our Replica of old Number 1 (1925). Restored by my Father in Law. It resides in Canberra with his family and is used regularly.
MG ZS EV, 2021
Having received my new MG ZS EV in lockdown, with a 5km travel zone, it was awesome on Tuesday to have to drive out for work. Roof open, sun shining … fabulous fun!
MGB MKI (1962-1967), 1963
My first MGB. Photographed in December 1965 as I prepared to visit my girlfriend who subsequently became (and still is) my wife.
This year I brought 'GRLKND' to life, a small charity reducing the national youth suicide rate. My best memories in my MG3 include morning drives to schools, buzzing with excitement. I've got the number plates to match, and roped my Mum into the MG3 life - family who drive together, strive together.
MG TD, 1953
Favourite memory: my 1953 TD on the first drive out after a 12 month overhaul and engine rebuild. I have owned and driven the TD for over 50 years, in the UK, Europe and now WA.
