story by Bruce Magers, photos by Frank Ochal

The American MGB Association (AMGBA) held it’s 37th annual meet in Stowe, Vermont this year form September 19-21, 2014. The event was held in conjunction with the “British Invasion of Stowe” which has been going for the past 24 years. This show annually hosts 600 plus entries but his year there were over 700 cars on the field. It was truly a magnificent display of virtually every British marque produced over the years.

In addition to the wonderful display of vehicles there were some 20 vendors on hand to tempt the participants to purchase not only auto-related products, but also pure Vermont maple syrup to take home as a souvenir of the weekend.

The AMGBA officers were kept busy throughout the day with member inquires as well as signing up new members for the association.

Next years meet is still in the planning stage. Keep an eye on our web site (www.mgclub.org) or in future issues of the Octagon for details.
