An unnessary demise
Christchurch, N.Z. based John McDonald sent this early fifties newspaper clipping telling of the theft of a Minor and the extreme lengths to which the thieves went to disguise its origins. The car was stolen in Aukland but was found 175 miles further south at Taumarunui. Although the Minor was already 20 years old at this time its butchery almost certainly meant that it didn’t survive for too much longer.
