Mixing it up with the Triumphs

Flatt Bernard has been traveling with Mike Woodward and cavorting with the Triumph Club.  He’s hiding behind the windshield of this very pretty, early Spitfire.

Saturday Breakfast?

The Triumph Club has been making good use of their site to arrange events.  We will likely create our own site for the HMGCC soon.  To get a head-start, you can join and FIND the Texas Triumph Register group.  As a bonus, many of the TTR driving events will also show up there.  There is no cost for individuals to join; and you will get automatic emails when new events are posted on that site.  Of few of us already plan to attend the Nov. 14 breakfast, as below.  Will you join us with your MG?

  • Midtown Bar & Grill

    415 West Gray Street, Houston, TX (map)

  • This week we are back in town at the Midtown Bar & Grill – one of our favorite spots – at 415 West Gray in Houston ph 713-528-2887.
    The group gathers around 8:00 a.m. and orders breakfast at 8:30 a.m. Confirm breakfast location on web the day before the event. Thanks to Russ Seto for selecting interesting destinations.

These People…


These are the kind of people that take their little British cars out in the rain and wear funny hats.  Aren’t you glad?

Oh Boy, it was Damp!!

Well, the 2015 British Expo was definitely a challenge to pull off, and the rain persisted.  We showed 19 cars and everyone seemed to have a great time in spite of less-than-ideal weather.  For those that could not make it, please plan on next year; we will send-that information out to all that preregistered in 2015.

Next year is a major milestone for the Houston MG Car Club and we have some neat ideas cooking.  No rain is planned (but that may be beyond our control!!)FullSizeRender-20 IMG_57371

For those that did not make it today, we will distribute your soggy packet and t- shirts, if you ordered them, through the Triumph Club and at this week’s MG meeting.  Others will be mailed.

Thank you all for signing up as we appreciate your support.

Expo is ON for Sunday, Nov. 1

The Expo was postponed to Oct. 31 because of the unusual flooding rain we knew was coming on Oct . 24.   Now Saturday has a tough rain forecast.  So, thanks to Mother Nature, the Expo is now set for SUNDAY, Nov. 1.  All the schedule times are the same as before.  Register between 8:00 and 9:30 am.  

See other details on page above, 2015 Houston British Expo.

Expo Postponed to Oct. 31

We are all aware that British Motor Cars are sometimes susceptible to erratic behavior during inclement weather.  In the interest of Health, Safety and Environmental concerns (oil and water don’t mix) we have decided to postpone the 26th Annual British Motor Expo until Saturday October 31st.  Same venue and schedule.

Given that it is Halloween, we invite you to come in costume (best costume award to be given) and/or have a car/costume theme (another award provided by HMGCC).

We hope you can make it as we have a great line up of British Marques!!!!
