This year’s MG & Triumph Spares Day was memorable in more ways than one. Not only was Storm Ciara doing her best to bring the country to a standstill, (and nearly bring the roof down with the mid-afternoon hailstorm) but the Register stand was buzzing all day long. Congratulations go to Matt Field (and polisher Sue) for picking up ‘Best Triumph’ at the show and also to Maggie for handling the steady stream of membership transactions with no let-up. In fact she had 21 renewals, 2 rejoins & 2 new family members sign up during the show. Besides Matts lovely MK1, the Register stand also featured the Bradbury’s super MK2 estate – both drawing admiring glances. A lovely show enjoyed by all, despite the weather.
David Manners Group are now pleased to offer Register members a discount off various part lines purchased through their Abingdon MG operation. It may seem an odd trading name for a supplier of Triumph parts but Manners assure us they have a good selection of items applicable to our vehicles.
One bonus is that you will be dealing with Register member and PI MK2 owner SIMON CARR – whos tale of tinworm can be found in the last edition of SIXappeal (Dec ‘19, page 22). Speak to Simon on 0121 543 1615 with your membership number to hand – and see what deal he can do for you.
To get the new website off to a flying start we’ve just had a short run of these 9cm square, self adhesive vinyl stickers produced. Emblazoned with the new ‘favicon’ (new one on me too…) logo as designed by our website creator Paul Girling, they are a fun new take on the Register name – pop one on your ride and show your allegiance! Available FREE to the first 40 members who send an SAE to the SIXappeal editor (address inside the front cover of the mag). Pop your membership number on the top left corner of the envelope. If you have a couple of cars then ask for 2. (Max 2 per household!)
