Vintage Cars: Morris Major Elite


Today while out for a drive we spotted this Morris Major Elite looking quite abandoned. It looked as if someone had brought it over from South Australia with the intention of restoring it but hadn’t got around to it. The door handles were still nice and shiny while other parts of the car were rusty like the bumper bars. I think it must have been someone’s pride and joy once as it still had the visor and venetian blind in the back. It also had it’s car club badges. It was a shame it was sitting out in all weather. Anyway I was pleased to be able to take a few photos of this car.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
