Minors to the fore on Drive-it-Day…

By | Headline News

Ken Martin took this shot of those taking part in a Morris Register organised mid-Wiltshire run from Devizes to Box on Drive-it-Day (Sunday 22nd April). Alongside Ken’s familiar 1930 Coachbuilt Saloon VX 4590 is another Essex registered Minor VX 7312, a 1932 Two-seater owned by Henry & Di Harvey. There were plenty of other Morris cars taking part along with an MG and an interloping motor cycle! (View more Drive-it-Day images at the foot of this page.)

Wartime McEvoy

TJ 1876 is a 1933 McEvoy Model 60 Minor Special owned at one time by the late Bev Hicks, who was a founder member of what is now the Morris Register. This photograph was taken during WWII when the car was in the custodianship of an RAF Observer.  A known survivor, the car was last seen ‘For Sale’ in Belgium in 2015.

Triple M corner no.100

By | Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

DG 2327 is a 1931 Gloucester registered MG M Type Midget, identifiable as such by its angular wings. This photo was taken on the Isle of Man and is one of a sequence of a dozen or more shots, some of which were used for a subsequent Autocar ‘touring’ article. This image was taken in the centre of Douglas and is one of the few where the driver’s face can be seen and the car’s two-tone colour scheme is apparent. The re-positioning of the spare wheel was no doubt made to optimise luggage space in the small boot. The newsagent located immediately behind the car is carrying an advertisement for the latest paperback by Edgar Wallace, priced at 9d. (LATplate E3917)
