Simeone Automotive Foundation Museum Best of Britain show


Ken Samen
 

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.

 

 

Ideas???

 

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

I’m a fellow member of the Philly MG Car Club and I was notified yesterday, my 1958 MGA was also accepted at Simeone.

 

More importantly I share your concern over February road conditions. I am researching transport options as I will no longer drive my fully restored MGA in snow or ice.

If I come up with some good options, I’d be happy to pass the information along.

Excellent news, and congratulations! I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful experience. 

The Simeone asked to have my 1949 Triumph Renown as part of their February show in 2014 and it was great fun. Make sure they let you keep the placard - it makes a great addition to your car’s memorabilia. They usually just scrap them unless you ask for it.

As to getting it there, I was fortunate that the weather was clear (albeit cold!) so I just drove it to/from the museum.

Hello Fellow Club Members

I refer to my Nissan Frontier Pickup as my LBC transport vehicle.  If you are willing to pay for a U-Haul auto transport, pony up a couple of bucks for gas and maybe throw in a hoagie from Wawa, I will volunteer to tow your vehicle to and from the museum.  Towing, my truck gets about 15 mpg so your best guesstimate on what an appropriate fuel reimbursement would be.  If you want to contact me about moving your car to and from, call me on my mobile at 215-499-1888.

I have not been an MGB owner for long.  Just a little over 6 years now.  But I consider my fellow PMGC members as great friends and many like family so it is my honor to make myself available to all of you who have shared so much with me.

Happy Holidays to you and yours,

Steve

Hello all. We’re new to the group, but I will give a thumbs up to the UHaul auto transport Steve mentioned. We bought our 1980 MGB in September in Toms River, NJ and rented the transport to bring it back to Chester County. I was a little concerned that it would fit on the ramps at first (!) (and you do have to have it lined up properly), but it drove right on and was secured in short order. Back in January 1996 when my husband finished his military service and we were moving back to the area from Kansas, we towed a 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider behind a UHaul truck. The transport then had a wider ramp that turned into a backstop (for lack of a better word). I was surprised that the transport we rented in September didn’t have that (even though you are still securing it in the same fashion) and so I was constantly watching the side mirrors during the 2 hour drive, especially on the turnpike, to ensure the MG was staying where it should have! All was well and it was incredibly secure.

 

For my taste, I would have preferred the same transport that we had before, but I’m not sure they offer that one any longer as I could not find it on their website. However, for a trip from the outskirts of Philly to where Simeone is, the current one will definitely do the trick.

 

Congratulations to all who were selected! That’s very exciting!!

Enjoy the weekend!

Bonnie

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.

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.

Steve,  your option looks that work for some.  How many (if more than one) trips/cars would you be open to?

All,   It looks like we have at least 4 club cars going at this point. Hopefully there are more.

I have no idea if there is away compile the clubs needs as a whole.

I will start with the information I think would be needed to consider if we can work together as a group to get to and from the museum (or if this will be a every MG for itself task):
Car#1, Type 1977 MG Midget, Owner Ken Samen, Home Location Warrington 18914 PA (32 miles one way to museum per google).

My Highlander can also tow a trailered car, if needed.

Steve,  your option looks that work for some.  How many (if more than one) trips/cars would you be open to?

All,   It looks like we have at least 4 club cars going at this point. Hopefully there are more.

I have no idea if there is away compile the clubs needs as a whole.

I will start with the information I think would be needed to consider if we can work together as a group to get to and from the museum (or if this will be a every MG for itself task):

If anyone needs a trailer to get their car to the museum, you are more than welcome to borrow mine (it has been lovingly maintained and serviced by master mechanic and all-around great guy: Kevin McLemore). I have used it for my '79 B and Keivn and Jan recently took it up to Put-In-Bay Races with their TD.

Blessings,

Ken,
I am in Ambler near Mondauk Park so Warrington is just great for me.  I would do two cars provided they were both the same day.  We can find out what the earliest delivery time is and be there with the 1st one when they open the doors.  Then I can do it again for a second if necessary.

Steve

PS. I can grab Mark Trailer

You guys are welcome to use my 14' open trailer to carry your MG to Simeone Museum.
Let me know and I will be glad to supply it. You would need a Mid size truck or bigger to tow with as the trailer is all steel at 2500 lbs.
