Best safety features with a competitive price! I am loving my MG ZST Core.

MG3, 2021

MGB, 1970

Only one memory, impossible! It started with a dream, two years finding the right one and then experiencing the feeling my MGB better known by some as 'Making Grins Bigger'. Just driving a classic on a sunny day, roof down enjoying the humming from the exhaust and bystanders waving as you drive, yeah!

MG HS, 2021

Favourite memory: driving through puddles on a stormy night!

MGF, 1999

I’ve owned my MG-F since new, over the years I’ve really enjoyed this little MG roadster and it’s timeless design. Recently I converted my MGF to 100% electric, the first of it’s type in Australia. It’s always been a fun little roadster to drive and now it gets juiced up via solar at home.

Best MGB MKII and BL (1968- 1974) in show, 1968

Favourite memory: my first drive - through the forest to Grants Picnic Ground, Kallista. I restored my MGB myself having found it on Gumtree 5 years earlier.

Favourite memory: spending 5 years restoring my favourite car.

MGB MKII, 1969

MG Midget MK3,1967

My Midget was a 50th birthday present (total surprise) from my wife, my favourite memory was the first time I saw it coming around the corner on the back of a truck.

I have always wanted an MGA so I am so thrilled to have been able to purchase this beautiful car recently. 

MG TB Special, 1939

I've been living with MGs all my life thanks to my dad's wacky interest in them. This car, a 1939 TB special in the style of the iconic 1934 MGK3, is his latest restoration and I love it. I'm allowed to drive it and take it on the race track. It is absolutely awesome!

Best MG RV8, 1995

My favourite MG memory is my grandfathers MG TC #4459 purchased in 1964 as a restoration project. It then passed to my father in the 90s, then to me in 2015 and eventually my daughter will be next. The story began in 1948, but it will never end. 

MG Midget, 1964

Favourite memory: touring the East Coast of Tasmania in my '64 Midget with my future wife. This was not long after a mammoth restoration, as the Midget is my first car and had been my daily driver for many years.

MG Midget, 1969

MG TC, 1949

My best memories are still being made every time I take my beautiful old 49 TC out. Whether it’s an MG club meet up, giving her a DIY day spa detail, tinkering around under the bonnet, or just a Sunday drive around the Gold Coast hinterland with my little dog Leo as my passenger. I LOVE my TC!

MG RV8, 1995

MG's turn heads no matter where you are. The look, the sounds for the smell are unique.

My favourite MG memory is taking my three children for their first ride in Ruby and opening the sunroof to hear their squeals of joy. Love at first sight.

MG HS, 2020

Favourite memory: picking up our family MG HS from Gold Coast MG. It has been a delight to drive and we will be looking at getting another new MG soon! The debate on which MG will be the tough decision. Either way, we will be back to meet the team to discuss. Just look at the beautiful front of our MG HS.

I saw this bad boy on the highway. Since that moment I wanted to test drive. After doing so a month later, I felt this car's performance, style, features and price combined will awake even the laziest of mankind.

MGB MKII, 1971

I have a 1971 MGB Roadster, restored in 2000 with a full bare metal restoration. It is my pride and joy that I love taking out on club runs, providing it is dry weather. When I do take the car out it is usually with my passenger, a golden retriever. I also have an MG6, which is my daily drive.

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.

MGF, 1997

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.

Favourite memory: getting together with MG Car Club friends at Rob Roy Hillclimb track which is operated by the Victorian MG Car Club.

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.

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 TC, 1948

MG TD, 1951

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.

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!

MG3, 2020

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.

MG3, 2020

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!

MG3, 2018

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!

MG3, 2020

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.
