It is the mission of the MMM Register to preserve and foster the use and enjoyment of these historic prewar MGs. Of the 11,500+ MMM cars produced between 1928 and 1936 there is one common thread: the strong, small displacement, single ohc engines that were the heart of these four cyl. Midgets, and six cyl. Magnas and Magnettes, engines that came down through Wolsley from a Hispano Suiza aircraft engine design. The NAMMMR grew out of an ever growing interest in a newsletter which was hand typed and distributed by Jerome Keuper to interested MMM cars owners in the States in the 80's. The newsletter soon matured into a Register and today some 200+ owners proudly own some 300 of the 3000+ MMM cars on the rolls of the MG Car Club MMM Register - UK.
The New England MG 'T' Register is an international organization dedicated to the maintenance, preservation and enjoyment of T-Series and Vintage M.G.s. The Register supports the active use of these cars and encourages the exchange of technical, historical and social information through the pages of its publication, The Sacred Octagon, (also known as TSO), which also contains photos, drawings, spares data, classified ads and other materials of interest to the membership.
The Register was established in 1975, with the sole objective of promoting the restoration, preservation, and enjoyment of the MGA. As of 2001, over 6,297 cars have been registered, with a standing membership of 2,122. While NAMGAR was created to specifically serve the North American MGA enthusiast, we now boast a world wide membership with over 15 countries represented. NAMGAR is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Treasurer, Registrar and Editor. These 5 people are assisted by many other volunteers in order to bring you our magazine and annual events.
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, wherein: 1) Each and every member would have a voice on policy 2) The officers would be elected by the membership and would offer them selves for re-election at the Annual General Meeting. 3) The finances of the REGISTER would be open to all, at any time. 4) The MGB REGISTER would be dedicated to maintaining and expanding interest in Britain's most popular sports car .. the MGB. 5) The MGB REGISTER membership would be open to all, with no restrictions, and where the ownership of an MGB is not a condition of membership. 6) ACTIVITY, ENTHUSIASM and DEDICATION are cherished.
The American MGC Register was formed in the Spring of 1980 to enable owners of MGC cars to be in contact with each other. This is done primarily through the club newsletter C Notes, which is sent to all members in good standing. A primary objective of the Register is to help with information for the repair and maintenance of the MGC and to aid in the location of spares. The Registers holds one national meet, "The 'C' Event of Brutal Aggressives" annually since 1981 in various parts of the United States, Canada and in 1992, in the UK. The AMGCR is an affiliated chapter of the MG Car Club of England.
