Show and Shine

MG SHOW AND SHINE 2020

MG Motor Australia has now concluded the first ever online MG Show and Shine, supporting Australian Red Cross. With over 300 vintage, classic and modern entries from across Australia, we were thrilled to bring our MG family together and celebrate our rich heritage and bold future.

Open to entries throughout September, MG owners were asked to share their favourite MG memories and images across our Facebook event page with each submission equalling a donation to Australian Red Cross.

A massive thank you to all the MG owners who supported Show and Shine 2020 and helped us raise vital funds for Australian Red Cross. We look forward to seeing you again at next year’s Show and Shine.

1967 MGB, SUNSHINE COAST QLD

4 years ago we bought a 1967 MK1 MGB & have been busy bringing it up to roadworthy standard since. It is not Concourse standard, but a very enjoyable Club car especially living up here on the Sunshine coast.

1964 MGB, PERTH WA

My 1964 MGB originally belonged to a member of our club. I was encouraged to have a go at a bit of racing and this car was perfect. Hubby took it up on his hoist, checked it over and fixed a couple of little problems and off I went. We often share the car for Autokhana’s, Motorkhana’s and Hill climbs. We even towed it across the Nullarbor and went to Tasmania for the MG Nat Meet 2 years ago competing in the racing events there. This has certainly enhanced my MG experience, MG’s are great little racing cars. Last year I was awarded Club Champion and Ladies Champion of our MGCCWA which was amazing in itself for such a new comer. My proudest achievement to date would be coming overall 2nd in the “Round the Houses” regularity in Albany WA. On my first drive 2 years ago I came overall second in my group. I continue to compete and would love more ladies to be encouraged to do the same. We live in Perth where there are some great events happening.

1936 MG SA SALOON, VIC

On the 10th Anniversary of the 2010 Peking to Paris Endurance Rally, attached are pics of my 1936 MG SA Saloon. Whilst no concourse trailer queen, this car has driven from Bejing to Paris overland, in an "off road" endurance marathon - without being on the end of a tow rope or back of a truck. Crossing the finish line was only possible by driving the last 150 metres by the starter motor. There were 2 other MG's in this rally for company, another MG SA (Keller) and also a 1956 MG ZA ... and all crossed the finishing arch togther. The car may have been built in the 30's, but it was a very comfortable (and classy) way to rally and the motor ran faultlessly, in fact the same car ran the rally again. The rally entry was made not only possible by my family and my co-driver John Hastie and his family, but also the wider network of members form the MG Car Club or Victoria, as well as the ingenuity of the classic car suppliers to build the rally car to survive.

1946 MG TC, MOUNT COLAH NSW

My car is a 1946 MG TC. I first acquired this car in 1967. Soon after I had an engine failure and the car sat around until I sold it in 1970 partially stripped. I was able to buy it back in 1990 as a complete "basket case". I set about a restoration and finally completed the car in 2008. I think the greatest moment was the the first drive after about 40 years.

2020 MG3, HENLEY BEACH SA

Here is my 2020 MG3 Excite, at our home in Henley Beach South Australia. I took delivery of this little beauty about three weeks ago from Newspot MG in Salisbury Park. I got it on a promotional offer which included a discount for members and the footy signed by the 2020 Port Power AFL team you can see in one of my photos (not the team, the footy). Coincidentally the personalised plates arrived just in time to celebrate my team's minor-premiership victory over Collingwood. Now the whole family can pile in and we can drive the MG to the finals at the Portress (Adelaide Oval). I wanted to stand out, which is why I chose bright yellow. To make it a little more special I added the GT stripes (her nickname is Gelato). This speedy little get-around has been perfect for city living. She's a sporty and easy to park, luxury small car and I love her.
