Chicagoland MG Club: Library
Mr. MG - Biography of John Yates Thornley
by Peter J.H. Thornley

2003, 246 pages, photos, softbound

Every MG person knows (or should know) the name John Thornley. This is his biography written by his son. But it is also an insight into the inner workings of The MG Car Company. The first chapter is a copy of his speech given to the Abingdon Rotary Club on April 18, 1980, before the final decision was made to close. It helps to explain way, even to this day, MGers consider Triumphs the enemy.
