MG cars was originally a division of Morris Motors that was established to build a two seater sports car. The records say that the MG stood for Morris Garage. Despite what happened to MG over the years they continued to produce a line of sports cars that have all stood the test of time as far as design, engineering, reliability and as stores of value. Very rarely does one hear of a so called “barnfind” involving an MG. There are many variants of the MG and just a few are shown here. We will at a later time add entire galleries of brands like MGJaffles Stalletjie
In any event, MG was first absorbed into Morris Motors, which in turn became part of the merger between Morris and Austin to form British Motor Corporation (BMC). That eventually became British Leyland which move still defies logic. When British Leyland was dismantled MG ended up in the Rover group and into the waiting arms of the Chinese. I find that as daft as asking the Chinese to make cricket bats and Duke cricket balls.
The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form.
Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.Competition Classes Enter Your Vehicle
Die Westrand Car Show is ‘n klassieke motorskou. OM TE KWALIFISEER VIR TOEGANG tot ‘n kompeterende klas, moet voertuie vir die eerste keer in 1999 of vroeër gebou of geregistreer word. Slegs die eerste 180 KWALIFISERENDE voertuie sal ‘n gedenkmedalje ontvang. Enige nuwer voertuig is welkom om as ‘n “nie-mededingende voertuig” ingeskryf te word, en dit net te danke aan” die gees van motor” en die begeerte om die vreugde wat u wiele vir u bring, saam met ons almal te deel.

Nie-mededingende voertuie mag op die dag by die hek inteken.
