SMALL automobiles will invade Hovell Tree Park for the annual Albury Wodonga Mighty Morry Muster this weekend.

The little vehicles will come from as far afield as Adelaide, Geelong and Sydney.

Some have been preserved and others modified, said Albury-Wodonga Morris Minor Car Club president Bill Littlehales.

“They are quite a nice car to look at, they get their fair share of attention on and off the road,” he said. “I have restored 54 cars over the years; it’s addictive.”

There will be a display of cars dating back to 1948 from noon to 3.30pm today and a run to Mitta and Dartmouth Dam tomorrow.

“This is always an excellent opportunity to catch up with old Morry friends and develop new acquaintances,” Mr Littlehales said.

“It’s one of the largest gatherings of Morris Minors, outside the Nationals.”

The muster has already attracted 46 registrations.

The club has confirmed it will host the 17th National Morris Minor Rally in Albury at Easter next year.
