Stockfest, 21 August 2016

Despite the strong winds & rainy weather of the previous day, the day of the MGA Twin Cam register's event on Sunday 21st August which the Magnette register were kindly invited to, turned out to be a reasonable day weather wise with the sun managing to shine through in the afternoon in particular. The decision was however taken not to put the new register gazebo up because of the unsettled conditions, but to hold its christening over until our next event at Kop Hill on 17th & 18th September.

BCLM, Wroxall and AGM - 2-3 July 2016

On Saturday morning about 12 Magnettes assembled at the Black Country Living Museum, along with a couple of other MGs and owners without their Magnettes. The day was overcast to start, with light rain, but not enough to spoil our enjoyment of the museum, which really brings to life the industrial history of the area with reconstructed buildings and machinery, populated by a ‘cast’ in period costume and appropriate accents. The tour of a real drift mine and the demonstration of chain-making by hand were particularly fascinating.

20th Z Magnette Day

20 years ago 3 German and two British Magnettes met in the middle of Germany for a BBQ. There was no programm other than sitting together, talking, eating and drinking. It was the first time so many cars assembled in one place in Germany.

Magnettes & Steam - 26th March

As usual the first event of the UK season was Magnettes & Steam, at the Peak Rail Rowsley South centre. Although the railway only runs just over 3 miles from Rowsley to Matlock, it has a fascinating history, being part of the Midland line from Derby to Manchester, which required many engineering challenges to be overcome through the Derbyshire hills, as well as negotiations with the landowners of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.
