The wanderer returns…

By | Headline News | No Comments

Geof Wilson has recently returned to his Leamington, Warwickshire home following a trip to Lake Constance, Switzerland in his 1929 Minor Tourer MM 9326. The journey was not without incident as Geof recounts on the website’s forum. MM 9326 or ‘Miss May’ is seen here parked at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium.

Colonial Ingenuity

John McDonald from Christchurch, New Zealand sent this snapshot image and press cutting of a 1930/31 Minor Coachbuilt Saloon. While the date and source are unknown the period is likely to be in either the immediate run-up to WWII or shortly after the end of that conflict. The Minor was used to transport the whole family including the dog while the specially adapted child seat was way ahead of its time. John McDonald comments that the small pram attached to the front of the car is not going to help the thermo-syphon cooling system cope with the heat one iota. John goes on to comment that the colonials “…expect a lot more from their cars.” On the evidence of these images there will be little argument to that.

In order to read the press-cutting without it constantly rotating – just click upon it.

Triple M Corner no.29

By | Snippets | No Comments

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.

1930 Midget KR 4806

R. Littlewood-Clarke owned this Kent registered Midget and is presumably driving the car when it was photographed here taking part in the 1932 MCC Sporting Trial held on 15th October 1932. The trial was centered around the Derbyshire town of Buxton and comprised five observed sections, three of which were covered twice – one of these being the notorious Litton Slack. Littlewood Clarke was one of 28 drivers to collect a Premier Award that day. The viaduct seen in the background may be the clue to provide the answer as to precisely where this Motor Sport sourced image was taken. (Image courtesy LAT Photo)
