VJ 1756 1929 Minor Tourer

Brian Maeers was something of a giant in the pre-war Minor world. His infectious enthusiasm for the model knew no bounds and this certainly rubbed off on those with whom he came into contact. He used his four Minors at every possible opportunity, running regular pub meets in his home village of Peatling Magna, Leics, setting up impromptu tours around his holiday home in Holme-next-the-sea plus attending both PWMN and VMR rallies. Today his 1929 Tourer, VJ 1756, is featured here. Known as ‘Prudence’, Brian used this car competitively, often being accompanied by his friend Dennis Johnson. Following Brian’s death in December 2013, VJ passed into the very capable hands of his daughter, Janie, who continues to campaign the car in a very similar manner to that of her father.
