The PWMN was established in May 2008 as an internet resource for enthusiasts of the pre-war Morris Minor. The site today is home to some 3000 images, 650 period articles, and much more beside. Amongst the period items are road test reports, vehicle maintenance and technical papers, original brochure images and specifications as well as general feature articles. The website's pages and Discussion Forum are regularly visited by its 700 members from over 50 countries worldwide. In early 2009 further pages were created for enthusiasts of the 1929-1932 M.G. 8/33 Midget or 'M' Type and the 1930-31 Wolseley Hornet, both models being very close relatives of the Morris Minor. For the future, the Network will strive to grow its internet resource base by continuing to add relevant material to the site, while also organising events at which fellow enthusiasts can meet and use their cars.
27th Nov: The history of the White Minor Special is further clarified by the publication of two letters from the archive of the car's current custodian, David Baldock. One of these is from the pen of John Bolster who, following his wife's death in 1942, owned the car until the fifties.
The Triumph Super Seven sold alongside the Minor during the late twenties and early thirties. The Autocar tested a Gordon England version of this model in February 1930 which will make for interesting reading for Minor Saloon owners.

VN 4071 1933 Minor Sliding-head Saloon: Terry Lloyd from Canvey Island is the current custodian of this car but this Atamy photo was taken in 1970 and shows a young man named John Marshall from Teesside fettling his car before setting off on a long journey (the caption provides no more info). This looks like a local press image from the period and is one of two featuring the car.
