NGOC Wall Calendar
We are intending to again produce a Wall Calendar for next year. The format will be the same as
previous but will use the winning pictures from the Photo Competition.
It is hoped that the cost will be the same, or only a little more than last year.
£8.20 (max) including P & P.
We need to achieve a quantity of 50 in order to achieve the best unity price.
It would be most helpful if members would pre-order their Calendar.
Please send me an email (email@example.com) to advise the
quantity you require. I would be grateful if you would do this by the 15th November.

NG Owners Club Forum
Since Nick Green's original design, in 1979, over a 1000 cars have been
lovingly created by our members. There are several types of car:
- The NG TA, the original, 'sit up and beg'
- The NG TC a two seater, cycle wing with a boat
- The NG TF a 2+2 flared wing beauty
- The NG TD similar to the TF but with front cycle
- The NG Henley was a Sierra or Cortina based
- The NG Ascot a Marina based
The basis for the original cars was the old MGB with it's 1800 cc engine.
There were Ford (Sierra & Cortina) based versions as well as Marina. Latterly there has been a move to V8
Findhorn press release:
"After many years of loss, Findhorn Cars is taking steps to
contract its business to avoid any further losses. No overheads will be incurred that can be avoided. No
advertising will be made, no-one will be employed. The objective is to ensure that builders and owners of NG
cars can be confident that Findhorn Cars will be able to continue to purchase NG specific parts. Nigel Brooks
will continue to run the business. He himself will make some of the more difficult parts to source, such as
dashboards and radiator grilles."
"Nigel is determined that NG parts and complete kits will continue to be available to the many fans of the
cars. Indeed, in what little time he has spare from the day job, he will continue to build and develop the
cars. After what seems like an interminable delay wide TF bodies will shortly be delivered. This determination
has to be coupled to determination to control costs. This will result in the NG light burning only dimly in the
kit car press; but please be assured that it is not being extinguished." 1-11-11
