Meet 2012 - Ocean Grove, New Jersey
Story by Bruce Magers, photos by Frank Ochal

The  American MGB Association (AMGBA) a nationally recognized organization headquartered in Chicago for MGB's, MGB-GT's and Midgets held it's 35th annual meet on September 15th, 2012 in Ocean Grove, New Jersey on the famous Jersey shore.  The gathering was in conjunction with Brits on the Beach 15th annual British Car Day sponsored by the Positive Earth Drivers Club (PEDC).

The show was staged on a two block section of the main street of Ocean Grove just two blocks from the ocean and the boardwalk.  Ocean Grove is a charming town featuring many restaurants, interesting shops and numerous Victorian homes.  The weather was perfect which only added to the already ideal setting.

Approximately 150 cars representing every marque from MGs to Morgans and Rolls Royce to Riley were represented.  There was a low-key popular vote.   All of the MGB's, MGB-GT's and Midget winners received trophies sponsored by the AMGBA.

In addition to the cars there was a DJ playing music ranging from the 40's to the present which added greatly to the festivities.

The AMGBA officers were busy all day enrolling new members and processing regalia sales.  It was great to see our chief technical adviser, Art Isaacs at the show.  We were also surprised when the American MGB Association founders, Rick Horan and John Giannasca stopped by to say hello.

In spite of the fact that the event was held on the Jersey Shore and in addition to numerous reports there was no official sighting of Snookie from the MTV Show "Jersey Shore"!! Maybe next year?

The AMGBA wishes to thank Bob Canfield and his fellow members of the PEDC for hosting such a well organized event. Information on next years show can be obtained by going to their website at www.pedc.org.  Information on next year's AMGBA Meet 2013 can be found at www.mgclub.org.
