Also a huge thank you to Lucy McCanne for organizing the holiday party last month.  It was greatly enjoyed by all who attended.


  • A new article has been added to the “Period Pieces” section of the History page.  It is entitled “TC – The Classic Anachronism” and was written by our own Jim Crandall for Safety Fast magazine in 1963.  You can read this article and many more on the History Page.
  • A new page has been added entitled, “The History of the TC Motoring Guild Badge“.  This page dives into the history of our beloved car badge and shows the differences between the various types offered over the years.
  • Also be sure to check out the newly redesigned Regalia Page, with several items listed that haven’t been advertised for years!

As always we are seeking photos for the Members Gallery showing you and your TC. We also welcome member biographies so your fellow TCMG’ers can learn a bit about you, your history with your TC or anything else you care to write about. Historic photos and stories are also being sought to expand our TCMG History section on the site. Please send what you have to Steve Simmons.
