Seasonal change..

By Headline News

Autumn is well and truly with us in the northern hemisphere, as depicted in this seasonal photo of Ken Martin’s 1930 Morris Minor Coachbuilt Saloon (VX 4590). The two-tone colour scheme as applied to Ken’s car is also fittingly redolent of this time of year.

IOTW no.600


This image has appeared here previously as one of a quartet of photos in I(s)OTW no. 509. It is worth re-showing as this Morris Minor Tourer is a very early example with parallel bottom edges to the bonnet and rear hinged doors. The Cumberland registration (RM 6065) also confirms the car’s antiquity as being a late 1928 example. As to when this and the other three photos were taken is not clarified by their captions.

Triple M Corner no. 241

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.

Date 22nd August 1931: A hectic scene from the early stages of the 1931 RAC International Tourist Trophy race (T.T.) run on the Ards circuit in Northern Ireland. Here Two Austin Ulsters in the shape of cars driven by Charles Goodacre (37) and Donald Barnes (36) fend off the attention of a whole gaggle of MG C Type Midgets, led by Dan Higgin (52), R.R. Jackson (46), Stan Hailwood (47) and R.T. Horton (45). Although Norman Black in a C Type famously won this race, the MG’s of Hailwood, Higgin and Horton recorded DNFs while Jackson’s car finished in 10th place, ahead of the Austins of Barnes in 12th, and Goodacre in 17th.
