1930 Coachbuilt Saloon UX 6524

Paul Rogers purchased his Minor in the early years of the last decade. It was very much a ‘project’, having been dry stored for a number of decades. Paul and his father Barry, commenced a very rapid restoration that saw the Minor traverse the perimeter track at RAF Colerne in July 2002 in an incomplete state. By 2003 Paul had joined the VSCC and had begun using UX 6524 in competition, taking part in LC&ES trials and the annual Brooklands Driving Tests.  Throughout the middle of the decade Paul’s saloon became a familiar sight at these events, achieving some notable results. Following Paul’s acquisition of a Vauxhall 30/98 the Minor took a back seat but remains in his ownership and is seen out and about from time to time.
