MG Register in Salado

MGs converge on Salado

Velocity film crews capture British spirit of classic cars in Salado

British automobile pioneer Cecil Kimber and his MG Motorcar Company Ltd. could hardly have imagined the impact their first sports car would have on the automotive world.  And now 90 years later, and more than 30 years since the last MG rolled from the storied factory at Abingdon-on-Thames, that passion shows no sign of letting up. 

More than 100 enthusiasts gathered on the grounds of The Venue to show off 60 antique and classic MGs. Film crews from Velocity CHannel were on hand to film the road rally later in the afternoon and interviewed the many owners of the British cars.
