The Specialist Club for pre 56 MGs

Thank you for your interest in the MG OCTAGON CAR CLUB,

If you own a pre 56 MG or are just interested in pre 56 MG’s then perhaps this is the club for you.

The Club was established in 1969 when Harry Crutchley and small group of enthusiasts in the  Stafford and Stoke areas of England began to meet and cater for pre 56  MG’s in an effort to maintain and preserve the cars for which Abingdon  was traditionally renowned.

The objects of the Club were to promote social and sporting meetings for  the benefit of members, provide members with information, advice and  assistance and generally further the interest in the preservation and  renovation of MG. cars built prior to 1956.

The membership of the club grew quickly, and sub-groups formed throughout the World to organise local  meetings for members,  catering solely for pre 56 MG’s

An important aspect of the Club is provision of a wide range of parts.

The Club is run by enthusiasts for the benefit of the membership

Our magazine, the Bulletin with 10 issues a year is sent free to all members, containing a wide range of feature articles, technical tips, photographs etc. This publication is at the heart of the Club and the common link  (apart from their cars) between members.

Regular events are organised throughout the year.

The club participates in major classic car shows throughout the year
