Morris Register of South Australia is hosting this year's National Rally of 120 restored historic vehicles from the home State as well as from Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and ACT. Held on alternate years since 1978, the rallies rotate from State to State at a different town on each occasion. Last time in the Riverland was at Renmark in 1988. Accompanying a variety of historic Morris, MG, Riley cars and Morris Commercials, will be about 250 rally participants to enjoy the sights and venues of the area. Some of them may stay a little longer to take in features not included by the rally organisers. The event has the support of Mayor Peter Hunt and the Berri-Barmera Council and local businesses will benefit from the visit. William Richard Morris, later to become Lord Nuffield, in 1913 established what was to be one of the world's largest vehicle manufacturing firms, one whose products enjoyed great popularity in Australia as well as in its UK home. "Bullnose" Oxfords and Cowleys from the 1920s, diminutive Morris 8/40s from the 1930s, the ubiquitous Morris Minor from the 1940s through the 1960s: all were once commonplace on our roads and retain their appeal as collector cars today, restored and enjoyed by Morris Register members here and overseas.
