New Visitors' content guide
The V8 Register is the leading specialist group for enthusiasts with an MGBGTV8 built at Abingdon or the modern classic, the MG RV8. We also welcome the rapidly growing number of MGBV8 conversions, the earlier Costello MGBV8s, the MG SV and the MG ZT 260 V8.

The three key strengths of the V8 Register are technical support, a good flow of information and news items, and social events.
Technical support
With two popular series of workshop notes for the MGBGTV8 and for the MG RV8 with useful spares and maintenance tips, an active V8 Bulletin Board where technical queries and tips are posted and discussed and a V8LIFELINE, a listing of recommended V8 specialists in the UK and overseas providing maintenance and spares services for MG V8 enthusiasts.
