Our hosting of a very excellent national meet of the North American MGB Register this year, in Katy, reminded me that we earlier hosted another national  meet, for the AMGBA.   In was June 1 and 2, 2001 in conjunction with our All British Motor Vehicle Exposition, which that year was held at Trader’s Village.   Ron Redding and I were credited with organizing the combined events.  

It was the Annual Meet of The American MGB Association which was formed in 1975 in New York City.   Our event in 2001 was their second time in Texas.  In 1986, the event was in San Antonio.  Candy and I attended it, even before joining the Houston MG Club in 1992.  As the photo attests, we came home with an award! 

Attorney Frank Ochal of Chicago was a key figure in the functioning of the AMGBA.  Unbeknownst to me, Frank died in December 2022 and the organization has since faltered.  Their website is no longer active.  Some information remains available at MGB.TIPS  

The North American MGB Register was formed in late 1990 as the result of a strong demand for a non-profit, democratic organization which would be run by MG enthusiasts, for MG enthusiasts. NAMGBR is completely managed and run by club members.  It is a 501(c)7 nonprofit organization registered with the IRS and incorporated in the state of Illinois. NAMGBR also sought and gained the approval and support of the MG Car Club of England, the original and oldest of all MG clubs. Consequently NAMGBR is the only national MGB organization in the United States, Mexico and Canada officially sanctioned by the MG Car Club.
