Ian and Judith Judd recently completed a 500 mile+ trip in their 1930 MG Midget (MG 703) travelling from their home in Leeds to Dorset, via a stop-over in Gloucestershire for the Pre-war Prescott event, before returning to Yorkshire just a couple of days later. Ian is a long-term advocate of the comfort afforded by Moseley Float-on-air seat cushions, although he did complain that by the end of the journey the car seemed narrower than he remembered! The fully laden Midget is seen here parked-up in Cirencester, Glos.

Harold Connolly‘s automotive art which appeared throughout the thirties is widely acclaimed today. He has a particular association with the MG marque, his work appearing in many of their advertisements and car brochures during that period. This image however appeared in an October 1933 Morris Owner magazine as a ‘header’ to an article on British cars at that years motor show. Note how only the three Morris owned brands are legible, although there are nods to suppliers, Dunlop and Lucas.
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.
