Triple M Corner no.13

By March 6, 2016Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

Earl Howe’s K3 Magnette (JB 1472), second in class to Eyston’s K3 (the outright winner on handicap) in the April 1933 running of the Mille Miglia, is seen here at the Eastbourne Coachwork Competition (or concours) held just a few weeks later in June of that year. The significance of the very tall gentleman is not known and neither is the identity of the man looking directly at the camera and standing immediately behind the car. (LAT Plate C0755)
