MGs roll through

The roads of the Boundary proved irresistible for members of a vintage MG car club meeting in Osoyoos.

These classic MGs are every bit as much fun to drive as they look!

These classic MGs are every bit as much fun to drive as they look!

 

If you were lucky enough to be out on Hwy 3 in the West Boundary recently you might have caught a glimpse of a line of classic MG cars that were out touring from a meet being held in Osoyoos.

The cars and drivers are from the Lower Mainland. “We are members of the Capri 56 MG Un-Club,” said Malcolm Scanlan from White Rock. “We don’t have meetings, we have socials,” he added, by way of explanation.

There were six cars in this group – all of the cars are MG, most of them C Series. Scanlan said the cars originally came out in the ’40s and ’50s but they are no longer produced.

“They are fun cars to drive, fun to have and you can still get most of the parts,” he said.

The cars were travelling along the highway at

a modest 80 km/h and several vehicles passed

them as soon as they could safely do so. But if

they passed them and went roaring on ahead,

they missed the chance to see the cars up close

as they all pulled in at the Husky in Rock Creek. Everyone was up and out of their cars to stretch their legs—and a group of young tourists were immediately drawn to the unique automobiles.

And smiles were on everyone’s face. These are fun cars indeed.
