Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline June 2014

MG 2014 Drive into a Gilded Past
June 15 – 19, 2014
at French Lick Resort in Indiana.

MG 2014 will be June 15 – 19, at French Lick Resort in Indiana. Ann and I are attending along with several other cars from CMGC. We will drive down on Sunday the 15th. I sent the members on our list the route. It will be an easy day drive. I expect to be there about 6 hours after we start, including a lunch stop. Please check out the website at for schedule of events and pictures. Southern Indiana is beautiful and has some great roads for driving MG’s. Of course, attendance isn’t limited to Midgets, 1100’s, and B’s. This year the MGC will join us with the addition of the MGC register. You will also see a very good selection of T’s, A’s, and even a few post Abingdon MG’s. This is a great opportunity to show off your MG and meet some really nice and knowledgeable people.

It is also time to register with the event if you haven’t already done so. Ann and I are attending the awards banquet and the car show. We have decided to pass on the bus tour to Nashville. Instead, we will drive our MG along with the Goebberts and Gonzales’ and anyone else who want to enjoy a nice drive along country roads. The deadline for early registration is passed, but you can still register for the many events. Register soon so you don’t miss the banquet. There are many opportunities for fun and education. John Twist will be there doing his rolling tech sessions. There is on-line or mail-in registration available on the site. The organizers have added a link with additional information. It is under “local info.” There is a lot of good information and it is being updated.


As of May 16th, there were 290 pre-registrations. The organizers have added another seating for Spring Mill Park and additional craft sessions available. Check the event web site for information.

We will be leaving the Lincoln Oasis at 8:00 AM on Sunday June 15th. If you would like more information about our route, you can contact me at the number and email below.

See you on the road!

~~ John & Ann Schroeder

I am a long time MG owner (1973 Midget) in the midst of a restoration of a 1959 MGA. I am looking for the correct color red interior for the car. I have never seen an original red interior for an MGA, but understand many of the after-market interiors are too dark. I was hoping to find a Chicago area MGA with an original red interior that I could take a quick look at and compare against various samples I have obtained from interior suppliers. If there is a member of the Chicagoland MG club that could be of assistance in connecting me with an owner of such a car, I would really appreciate it. My phone number is 312-407-0784.

Thanks in advance,
