Photo Album 2020 Virtual Branch Rally

Thank you to all that attended our Virtual Branch Rally and Classic car show of May 2020.

In these unprecedented times where we have not been able to show our cars, go on runs or visit shows to see these great cars it was fantastic to see so many people attended our very first virtual show. It would have great to have made this a live event however making sure everyone could possible use the technology and keep safe we thought the option we went for was the best.

I (Anthony) have really enjoyed reading the comments that were sent in with the pictures, Mr & Mrs Bodger for example we hope you did as well. 

We have archived all the pictures from the show as we always do for prosperity and don't forget if you missed to show to take a look below and here for the winners.

This is my day to day car when not working, everyone deserves a fun car. Fully serviced and the last 4 years by myself including changing all components linked to the brakes, you really need these cars to be able to stop!

David Flint

2 door saloon, almond green,  first Reg 1964, 1098cc, miles - 71213 (actually 171,213 mls). 

The previous long-term owners were Mr & Mrs Bodger (from 1990).

Never been off the road - MOT's from 1990. I bought her in Sep 2010 showing 47500 mls ( 23713 mls in 10 yrs). A truly 'rolling restoration' - a lot of restoration by the 'Bodgers' - floor and rear spring hangers. I replaced the n/s front wing plus inner wing and lower of 'A post' and sill restoration. Additional improvements include: 'lead-free' head, 3.9:1 ratio diff, reconditioned gearbox, all braking components replaced and most suspension and steering. Overall - it performs very well and is very reliable.

Born in Beeston Notts 1949. lived Llangynidr since 1984

Mike Burgess

Triumph TR7

1977 FHC. I purchased the vehicle in 2004 when I was originally looking for a soft top version. This one came up that had been stored. On inspection there was only two small rust holes. One in the rear window corner the other on a near side sill, this was caused by being under sealed over a drain hole. I carried out a full restoration on this vehicle in 2005. And along with the car the owner had brought a lot of new switches and various other items, all in new Leyland boxes. I have overhauled the engine and had a full restoration in the original colour Java Green.

Donna Fracchiolla

Morris Minor Saloon 1963

We found Merlin (or Merlin found us!) in 2004, he is called Merlin as he is magic!
Merlin has all the original features but we have added servo assisted brakes. This morris minor 4 door saloon is trafalger blue and is what is known as a "Dual Personality" car. This 1963 car has the improved 1098cc A-Series engine but the engine was put in the same shell as the last 1950's minor. There is a "spotters guide" to identify these cars and some of the features include two tone upholstery, clap hand wipers, open glove boxes, pull switches etc. Merlin loves being a member of SWMMOC and meeting his moggy friends.
