About a dozen OMS members assembled in the Steakburger parking lot for the August Mt. St. Helen’s Tour.  Amongst the familiar automobiles there was a new face, Tammie from Tigard and her family.  Tammie purchased her 1961 Mk 1 Australian Morris Mini, which she affectionately calls “Mate”, about 6 years ago with the help of her brother who belongs to SAMOA in the Seattle area.

Tammie and her brother set to work.  Stripping off 3 coats of paint to find the bare metal, the car began its restoration process.  The final product: Mate now sports a “Transit Blue” (as in the color of Tacoma Transit buses) body color with big bold black bonnet strips and an upgraded 1275 engine to make him run like a champ!

Welcome Tammie and Mate!!!
