Re: Simeone Automotive Foundation Museum Best of Britain show

James J Schulte

My 1958 MG Magnette was part of a theme program similar to this in 2014. It was an honor to be a part of it as you say. We enjoyed the experience. However, a storm had hit several days before and the roads were still salt laden. I chose to go by driving. I regretted that decision afterwards. It took several days of cleaning to get rid of the road grime. If I had thought about it sooner, I would have trailered it. If you have the means, do so. 
Enjoy the experience! I look forward to seeing your car represent out club.

My 1977 MG Midget was chosen (after I submitted it) to part be part of the “Best of Britain” at the  Simeone Automotive Foundation Museum.

I submitted it after seeing it being promoted on the Philadelphia MG Car Club Facebook page.

As of current date, the show will be Saturday, February 11th to Sunday, February 19th, 2023.

It sounds corny, but I am truly honored to be representing the MG brand, the Midget model, the rubber bumper years, the Midget and Sprite Club of UK and the Philadelphia MG Car Club…. within the walls of the Simeone Automotive Foundation Museum.


As of now, I plan to get the car there (32 miles away) either by just driving it or uhauling it to and from the museum.

I am just worried about the time of the year, road conditions and salt.

Should I even consider paying someone to transport it? Even though the car is in great condition, priceless to me, it is a rubber bumper Midget an worth 7$ to 9$ thousand on a good day.





Are any other Philadelphia MG Car Club members/cars part of the show?
