  1. I'll really miss his friendship and support. He was always willing to help check facts or give an insight when needed. A friendly chap and a true TR hero. A full tribute will appear in 329: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2021/04/0266/RIP-Kas-Kastner-19282021
  2. Hi Russell, you can express interest in a plot via www.triumphandmgweekend.com under trade. Or email Jo Whitty on office@tr-register.co.uk. You will be contacted when plots have been released for booking. I understand the working party are planning the layout for these to increase space to accommodate the MG traders, so will be announced soon.
  3. Hi Conrad, The MGCC are the 'original' MG Car Club, based out of Kimber House in Abingdon next to the site of the old factory at Cemetery Rd. They were once a part of the MG factory and to this day have a close strategic partnership with MG Motor. In 2020 they remarkably turned 90 years old and have 55,000 worldwide members with around 12,500 in the UK. So, around twice the membership size. The are a not for profit ltd. like TR Register. The MGOC are a successful parts business with a club as an extension of their activities based out of Swavesey nr Cambridge.
  4. Happy Birthday John, hope you had a great day!
  5. Thanks everyone, An unusual birthday being locked down, but I was teated to a superb cake !! plus a heap of lovely wishes and cards. I spent the day on TR Action 327 and the evening on fitting a new steering column bush to the TR followed by tucking into my ales and whisky selections!! I used to think 37 was ancient, yet here I am !!! Thank you for your birthday wishes!
  6. My pleasure, no problem - found it eventually!!
  7. Congratulations to all our wonderful members as TR Register won Best Contribution to Charity this evening at the Virtual Classic and Sportscar Awards for our Triumph Over COVID-19 campaign which raised £6,500 for the NHS Charities through the sale of our Triumph Over COVID-19 rally plates. A massive well done to everyone who bought a rally plate and sent us their pictures in during the lock down. This award is for all of you! Also, TR Action Magazine was singled out as runner up in the Category of Best Magazine of the Year, citing its exciting new design and rich content as a reason
  8. H Paul, Great to hear from a fellow Rutlander - I have my optional MOTs at Halls Garage, Morton, Bourne. They are an MG specialist but know all British sports cars well. https://www.hallsgarage.co.uk/ Also - no personal experience but we have RH Classics on our patch at Melton: https://www.rhclassics.co.uk/ Post-COVID - make sure you get along to Camb Followers local group meets, Tracy is doing a great job there and also Leicester Group who are also very vibrant and active: https://www.tr-register.co.uk/group/camb-followers https://www.tr-register.co.uk/
  9. Hi Kevin, If you re-joined last week, then your next magazine will be 326 (Dec/Jan) as 325 had already been despatched at the beginning of November. However, drop a note to office@tr-register.co.uk asking if Jo can send you one of our over stock copies and she'll put in the normal post box for you.
  10. I thought he was good in 'My Family' ! Robert Lindsay that is....
  11. I love your story == Tech things are great - but real life is greater

    I am just getting my 14 year old interested in converting some  TR to Electric - My freind and I are just working on the fiances for it all at the moment -- seems to be the way forward for the younger generation, that and 3D components -- ME - give me the  puffing chugger smelling of petrol and oil anyday - but the future is not about me --  bring on more story's   -- Andrew

  12. Damn! I missed a trick there, that would have been much funnier! Forget all the 70s TV references, their lost on me - born 1984 - I want to see a photo of your TR5 adorned with the new 'print at home' rally plate fixed on with Sellotape or even better you wearing the branded blindfold in readiness??
  13. Hi David, Sure - I used the poly versions of the remote housing bushes: https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-UKC854POLY transformed the gear shift. ALthough, I used the Superpro ones from Robsport, seemed better quality to me. Also, worth checking this isn't mashed: https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-UKC9338
  14. Well, the plate was never intended to be a historical document of every TR model ever made, but rather to roughly represent each design era of the main production models in an aesthetically pleasing way to look nice on people's cars. Originally the 3A wasn't there either, but it didn't look right with 4 cars and we were going for the v-shape behind TS2 look. So, we added in a 3A which, with that wide mouth grille, is the most graphically distinguishable as 'different' when you look at a glance. Then TS2 is white and that looked wrong too, so we went with eggshell from MVC575 as the "firs
  15. Great tip ! I did the same with mine. Another one is don’t forget the metal spacers that pass through the bushes and also to renew the cup in the gear stick socket - the new poly remote bushes make that gear shift so much nicer!
