Elgin Story

My name is Jim Saward, now living in Victoria, Australia. We moved from a country village to a town called Wynyard in Tasmania in 1939 when I was seven. In an old car garage at the house over the road was an old car. Old but in good , nearly new condition. It had done next to no miles, but in the intervening years those details have gone. Over the next few years us kids from both families used to play in the 'old car in Mr Trethewie's garage. In time he needed a trailer for his business so, of course, the old Elgin suffered the wreckers axe etc. The body was dumped up the road a bit in a hollow beside the road and the engine was chucked in a hole on the property. By this stage I was getting interested in cars and motorbikes and asked if I could have the Elgin's engine. I used to pull it down and build it up again on a regular basis. (I would have been about eleven or twelve by that


The original owner was a member of the Tasmanian State Patiament when he bought the car new. The story has it that as he learned to drive in the Elgin he smashed into the end of the shed, and never drove it again. Some years when he sold the property, the car was left in the shed. The rest is history. I have been involved with vintage and veteran cars and 'bikes all my life and have not been able to find anyone beside myself who has ever seen an Elgin car. I hope that this is of some interest to Elgin people in the US. I have only recently got into this internet and email hobby and I hope this gets to you. All the best from Jim Saward in Australia.
