This year, a very special classic automobile--the MG MGB--is marking the 50th year of its birth. The car was introduced by the United Kingdom's MG Cars in 1962 and produced until 1980. But while the car's production ceased a long time ago, it still commands a solid following among enthusiasts.
Take, for example, the MG Owners Club Manila, which is celebrating the iconic British sports car's golden jubilee with a get-together on Sunday, September 23, at Venice Piazza in McKinley Hills, Fort Bonifacio. The event will start at 7am and will finish by 12 noon.
"On this memorable day, we are inviting all MG sports car enthusiasts, members of the British Car Club, the Vintage Car Club of the Philippines, the Euro Car Club of the Philippines, the Mini Cooper Club, and the Manila Sports Car Club to participate in the gathering of motoring enthusiasts and their cars," says MG Owners Club Manila's Ed Aguila.
According to Aguila, over half a million MGBs left the MG factory during the 19 years it was in production.
