The British Motor Museum will celebrate the 60th birthday of the MGB at a special event on Sunday 25 September. This event will appeal to anyone who loves MGB cars, whether they have owned one in the past, know someone who has one or would simply like to see some of these iconic cars proudly displayed together. The cars will be displayed outside the front of the Museum from 10am – 4pm.
Visitors can enjoy a number of special arena events with interviews by commentators and experts on selected cars and their owners. There will be a timeline of MGB Roadster cars from 1962 to 1980 and the MGB GT from 1965 to 1980, showcasing a car from each production year. Visitors can also enjoy entertainment from popular singing trio 'My Favourite Things' and Kev Read, an acoustic singer.
Inside the Museum, visitors will find a number of milestone moments from MG history such as the 1925 ‘Old Number One’ which was the inspiration for the MG sports car. There is also a special cross sectioned MGB GT that shows the inner workings and design of this famous car.
The MGB Register of the MG Car Club is also offering visitors the opportunity to purchase Event Rally Plates and other Regalia to commemorate the anniversary which can be purchased from their event website www.mgb60.com
