Leyland Mini Clubman

Leyland Mini Clubman: Clubman style Mini from the 1970’s. Not as stylish as the original Mini’s, but had more room under the bonnet and is still a great little car. This one has the front wheel disc brakes, with minilite mags. Also has a GT badge on the side suggesting this a Clubman GT specced car.

MGB 50th Anniversary Day 2012

MGB 50th anniversaryThe MG Car Club of Western Australia held a 50th anniversary celebration day for the classic British sports car, the MGB.

There was a good turn out of cars, mostly MGB’s as expected, however several other types of MG’s were present at the event, including MGA’s, TC’s, TF’s and a rare MG SA.

The event was held beside the Swan River at Bayswater Riverside Gardens, which has previously been used by the club for annual events.This venue was excellent, being centrally located with plenty of facilities such as food, drinks and toilets nearby.

A great show put on by the MG Car Club of WA.
