What TC's are all about!

"The Slut" turned into a Courtesan!

TC 8905, for many years campaigned by yours truly, was nicknamed "The Slut" after Bill Bugg overheard my wife saying "That car's a slut, if I'd had 3 grand spent on me, I wouldn't have let him down the next day!". And "The Slut" she became. Now, 20 years later, in the devoted hands of Albert Junge of Nambucca Heads, "The Slut" has been reborn. She wouldn't recognize herself. What a superb job with loving attention to detail. Some might question the chrome wheels and radiator slats but the car is a beautiful restoration in its style. And all done in Nambucca Heads, a long way from the usual capital city support groups that we city owners rely on. Needless to say, Albert is picking up some silverware!

Pictures before and after above. The Customline is another of Albert's creations and is well known in the Ford tribe.

The TC Register

This 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 420. "About 420" 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 (2013) the youngest TC's will celebrate their 64th birthdays.
Meanwhile the internet has changed hugely over the past 16 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

The TC 60th Anniversary Bash - Photos!

For those still interested in an event that took place almost 9 years ago (18th September 2005), the following are pdf's of photos of all the 109 odd cars that were present at the Bash for your interest and entertainment. To keep the file size down (to about 400kb) I have split them into pages. Click on the links to download. The pages are in Registration number order with numberless cars on page 1. You'll need Acrobat Reader installed of course. You might find that your firewalls put up an objection to active content but I can assure you the pdf's are bug free, so enjoy!
