Member Jonathan Barwick is an all-year-round user of his 1933 Morris Minor (RSJ 615). His most recent trip took him to the village of Much Markle in Herefordshire where he took this very in-period-looking shot of his car parked outside the local garage.

The 2023 PWMN Welland Valley Rally

By Current Events

Diarise these dates now June 9th-11th 2023...

For 2023 the Network’s annual rally is returning to the East Midlands, or to be more precise the Welland Valley. Our rally base is to be the village of Lyddington, Rutland, its Marquess of Exeter Inn hosting our rally dinner on Saturday evening. The rally’s two tours will visit some of the region’s hidden gems, using roads that are suitable for 90 year old vehicles. A rally page with much more detail will be coming soon, while a Rally Booking Form can be found beneath the blue button below.

This recently acquired period factory photograph of a 1932 Morris Minor (sliding-head) Saloon illustrates the direction car design was taking in the early thirties. For Morris Motors that meant the removal of the roof overhang above the windscreen, which must have marginally improved aerodynamics, or using their terminology created an “eddyfree” frontage. The doors were also significantly larger than those seen on the 1931 season model, improving access and egress for the car’s occupants. The Pychley sliding roof was similarly regarded as a big step forward when compared to its Kopalapso fabric forerunner as fitted to the 29-31 Coachbuilt Saloons, while the larger Dunlop Magna wheel centres were also an updated feature for the Minor.

Triple M corner no.289

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.

This is KF 498, a 1930 Liverpool-registered MG Midget. Seen here in what looks to be a moorland setting with a young woman at the wheel sporting suitable open-air motoring attire, which includes very fashionable (for the period) trousers. Perhaps the only variations from the standard factory specification to be noted on the car are the fitment of a windscreen wiper along with that of a rearview mirror attached to either the scuttle side or screen support.
