Response to GOF-South has been outstanding. If you haven't already registered, please do so now. Don't wait until the last minute. We can accommodate everyone, but we need time to adjust.


Regalia: February 19, 2018. Additional shirts and caps will not be available at the event.

GOF Registration: March 2, 2018. The last day to mail your registration to produce your full packet of credentials and documents. Of course you can register at GOF, but the line will be long and some activities may be full.

Hotel Rooms: March 2, 2018. Last day to book rooms at the reduced GOF rate. A limited number of room are available at the special rate. They may be gone before the March 2 cutoff date. Book early.


Submit your photos for the "MGs and friends forever" photo contest. Send us photos of a memorable moment(s) of YOUR MG, past or present. Email for information.


Two more famous MG builders and racers are joining GOF seminars:

  • Hap Waldrop, vintage MG racer and owner of Acme Speed Shop in Greenville, SC is helping Brian and Jack Collins of Ceres Motorsports in the Performance Upgrades seminar.
  • MG TD vintage racer Jeff Brown adds his experiences and his car to George and Nick Pardee's Vintage Racing seminar. Half of the seminar is discussion and half is hands-on demonstrations with their race cars.


What kitchen items have you raided to finish your MG project? Dig them out of that box of stuff in the garage and show at GOF. Yes, turkey basters to add gear oil are an MG "kitchen tool."


Sell your MG or buy another in the MG Car Corral. You'll never get a better opportunity. The $15 fee is on the registration form.


Buy or sell unobtainable MG parts at the Autojumble. No charge for members of any MG club. Bring your own 6-8 foot table. Set up on the show field at the Saturday First Timer's show and the Saturday Main show. Professional MG vendors, contact us for opportunities.


GOF is more than seminars and tire-kicking. Sign up for these special activities on the registration form.

As I've said before ... This ain't no "ho-hum" GOF!! See the full schedule of events and register on the GOF-South website.

Contact us if you have a question.

The Classic MG Club is looking forward to welcoming you to Central Florida and to GOF-South Mk LII.
