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.
Following on from TMC no.283 is this F. Gordon Crosby cartoon which first appeared on page 703 of the 19th April 1935 edition of The Autocar. This famous K3 Magic Magnette was owned and driven by G.E.T. Eyston from 1933 through to 1935 and was liveried for part of that time in cream and brown horizontal stripes. As a result it was popularly nicknamed ‘The Humbug’ and took part in both race events and record attemps during that period. (LAT photoscan courtesy of Motorsport Images)
