A Very Famous TC Race Car
Harry Firth and Russell Medhurst seen with Harry’s famous race car TC 4723 at the Shannon’s “Round the Lake” do at Albert Part on 8th June 1997. The car was subsequently bought by John Batkin, but following John’s premature death, this famous car has now come on to the market. This is an extraordinary special whose racing history is renowned. Serious buying interest can be expressed to David on zero four one eight, three five two, nine three eight.
The web based TC Register was launched in November 1997 when the web was a very different place. Since then the number of known cars in Victoria and the Southern Riverina on the Register has grown from about 150 then, to the present figure of about 400. "About 400" because unless we have a near current picture or knowledge of the car we can never be absolutely sure that the car currently exists. However, we can be quite certain of at least 300 cars which is amazing given that this year (2012) the youngest TC's will celebrate their 63rd birthdays.
Meanwhile the internet has changed hugely over the past 15 years and there is no longer the necessity to keep picture files as small as when we started when download speeds were very slow. So I intend to gradually improve the quality of pictures so that as many of the pictures as possible have a minimum width of 1024 pixels. This size looks very nice on a normal monitor.
There are still a lot of cars with no pictures available and I welcome pics at any time either via email or by post. An entry without a picture is just a number, but a picture is always interesting even though the car may be a pile of bits! So if your car is not illustrated (or not even there) please email me (address at the foot of the page), with pictures preferably 1024 minimum size but the larger the better and I will incorporate them into the pages. And if any owner would like me to improve the photo of their car, just email me a better photo and I will be very pleased to put it up.
I reiterate our policy that owners details will not be revealed on the web, only owner's first names and initials of surnames. Owners should also be aware that membership of the MGCC (or any other club for that matter) is not necessary for your car to be on the Register, the only criteria being ownership of a TC in Victoria or the Southern Riverina and Tasmania.
For newcomers, navigation is simply a matter of browsing the lists which are in chassis number order, and clicking on a thumbnail will bring up a much bigger picture.
And there a number of other pages that you might like to browse through via the navigation bar.
And if you have a TC, wherever you are in the world send an e-mail to me Richard Millington at the address at the bottom of the page and tell me about your car
