A Semi-Sports quartet…

A VMR Rally held in Dorset during July 2007 saw the coming together of four Minor Semi-Sports, although to be totally accurate three of them were 1930 Semi-Sports while the fourth car in shot was a re-bodied 1929 Minor Tourer GU 1342. The builder of this car (Dave Cooksey) is seen standing alongside the vehicle while its then owner (David Roscoe) is in the drivers seat with his wife alongside him. Next to GU 1342 is a car with strong Dorset connections in LJ 4435 a car making its debut at the rally and shipped over from the USA for the occasion by its then owner Ian Grace. It’s believed that both of these cars are currently for sale. Next in line is the editorial car VJ 1756 which had been purchased in a part-completed state a year earlier from Brian Ellams in Cirencester. On the far right is the Mike Jones car JN 570 which, along with VJ 1756 will be returning to Dorset next month to take part in the Jurassic Rally. With IA 9142 (Alistair Bond) active along with Semi-Sports replica FD 6409 (Garry Waiting)e it could be possible to re-create a similar image – perhaps at the 2017 rally?
