Park Record Scene Clips for July 3-6, 2007

Beep beep: make way for the itty bitty MG

This week watch out for those little MGs.

In the 1950s and 1960s, the bitty British sports cars became icons of mod fashion and this week, more than 100 MGs will descend on the Canyons Resort in Park City this week for a "Gathering of the Faithful," the annual car event that features MG TCs, TDs and TFs, as well as other vintage models. Proud owners are expected to drive from all over the Western United States and Canada for the event.

The public is welcome to wander among the automotive marvels at a free car show on the plaza of the hotel complex today, Tuesday, July 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The last time a GoF was held in Utah was in 1997, and also in Park City. Since then, the event has traveled to central Caifornia, Whistler, B.C. and Durango, Colo. For more information, log on to
