Photo for Five MGs From Oz To Drive Across North America

In May this year, after completing an epic drive from Tierra del Fuego to Vancouver, BC, four MGs were put into storage in Vancouver.

In May 2016, the Aussies are coming back to complete their Americas (and Canada) journey. Led by Dave & Laurel Godwin in their 1961 MGA, five MGs will drive from Vancouver to Cape Spear in Newfoundland. They will travel through Canada and the USA, and will all be at MG2016/MG41 in Louisville, KY.

The tentative schedule for their trip is shown below and is subject to change. If you, or your Club, wish to meet up with them, drive some of their route with them, or host them at a social event, email Dave Godwin directly.
