We are the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the North American MGA Register (NAMGAR). Since 1978, our members in the Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area have shared a love and enthusiasm for the MGA automobile. As the birthplace of NAMGAR, our chapter has a rich history of serving the MGA community.
The North American MGA Register (NAMGAR) was organized in July 1975 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the MG marque. The objective of the Register is to further the preservation and enjoyment of the MGA which was manufactured between 1955 and 1962 and to promote the camaraderie of individuals owning these wonderful automobiles.
NAMGAR, founded by local Washington DC metropolitan area MG enthusiasts, also operated as the de facto club for the Capital Beltway area MGA owners. These founding members assumed duties as officers of the Register and as important, provided the behind-the-scenes support that helped make the Register successful. As NAMGAR grew and the leadership functions began to extend to members across the country, area MGA enthusiasts were once again able to focus on local activities and decided in April 1978 to form a regional chapter to be known as the Mid-Atlantic Chapter, also recognized as The Birthplace of NAMGAR.
