Late autumn in Dorset…

A beautiful autumn day lured Mike and Sue Rose away from their painting and decorating and into their 1932 Minor Two-seater (WP 1085) for a meander along some of Dorset’s beautiful byways. This golden leaved tree-lined lane provided the perfect setting for a great photo.

This photo of Garry & Marge Schultz with their 1930 Australian bodied Minor Tourer first appeared in Queensland’s Toowoomba Chronicle newspaper. The Schultz’s were attending the end of a stage of the Great Endeavour Rally, a challenging charity event held in what is jokingly described as ‘rural Australia’ and better known as ‘the outback’.

Originality is a hot topic in the pre-war car world but some things should not stand in the way of progress, particularly where safety is concerned. Plenty of Minor owners are now fitting LED lamps to their cars,  these being many times brighter than the low wattage tungsten bulbs they are replacing. Peter Yates was an early convert, fitting LED bulbs to his 1933 Saloon (LV 975) some years ago. It means that now his Minor can be used around-the-clock, which of course includes attending his local Morris Register evening noggin as can be seen in this shot.

An interesting Minor ‘special’ pick-up…

All is not what it seems with this internet sourced, Minor pick-up image. The front half of the vehicle’s bodywork was originally fitted to a 1930-31 Coachbuilt Saloon while the load carrying area is a recent addittion, as of course is the age related plate, BS 9340. There are two towns in the UK named Netherton, one in the West Midlands the other in Merseyside. A Google search revealed that this ‘P. Smith – Decorator’ resides in Netherton, near Dudley, in the West Midlands.

Earlier this year Tineke & Arie Roest completed a 1600 mile road trip from their home in Holland for a tour around the island of Ireland. Their 1930 Jarvis Hornet special proved to be an extremely reliable mode of transport which attracted attention whenever it stopped, despite their best efforts to ensure it blended in with the background.

This 1932 Minor Two-seater is a permanent resident at the Nisse Nilsson Collection Museum in Scania, Sweden. It looks like it might just need a charged battery, fresh fuel and oil along with a quick rub-down with an oily rag and it could join us at our rally in Marlborough next June!
