About Us

This beautiful picture was created by Heather Rippert in memory of her father, our founder, Hank Rippert.
It depicts him preparing to leave in TD-8888 for the "Ocean to Ocean" trip he took with his brother, our Chair Emeritus, Tom Rippert.
Rest peacefully Hank, we'll take a drive together again on the other side.

The Delaware Valley Classic MG Chapter (DVC) established in 1970 is an organization of about 125 MG enthusiasts. The chapter is an “all MG” Club and is affiliated with the New England MG T Register (NEMGTR), the North American MGA register (NAMGAR) and the North American MGB register (NAMGBR).

The primary goal of the club is to provide opportunities for driving and sharing the enjoyment of MGs through motoring events and social activities.  Our events focus on family, camaraderie, and fun.  We have one 'business' meeting each year.  Otherwise, all of our events are aimed at enjoying our fellow members and the cars that we love.  

To aide in “Maintaining the Breed”, we have a 'Tech Session' each spring.  Access to Dr. DVC (our own member technical experts), and the sharing of experience (and woes) of MG ownership, repair, maintenance and restoration is another benefit of the club.

You don’t have to own an MG to belong to the club - as long as you love them as we do, welcome!  Local members live in the extended Delaware Valley area – as far north as Scranton PA, west to Harrisburg PA, south to Wilmington DE and east to the Jersey shore (we also have members as far away as Florida and California). Activities are centered in about a 50 mile radius from Philadelphia where the majority of the membership resides. Events are moved to serve all points of the compass.

We host a dozen or more terrific events every year such as:

  • Our annual Car Show
  • Spring and Fall weekend tours
  • Several car rallyes – including the Tom Hornsby Memorial Rally.
  • Tech Session
  • Holiday Party
  • and much, much more (see our Events Page for the latest list and dates)

Group events are also held in conjunction with the semi-annual NEMGTR GOFs (Gathering of the Faithful), NAMGAR GT’S (Get-Togethers), and other local events. Each November an annual meeting is held at a selected “watering hole” in the membership area to take care of our business needs, but more importantly, to plan the forthcoming year’s events.

Membership dues cover the cost of maintaining the website, periodic mailings, event costs, and other operating expenses of the club. Many events are “covered dish” and are held at members’ homes.

DVC members are expected to join the Register appropriate for their car. Each Register membership is a bargain as you will receive a high quality publication dedicated to the preservation of your particular model of MG, and loaded with events, technical tips and other great stuff.
