A LEGEND LOST

Saturday, February 06, 2016

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Tasmanian hot rodding legend, Andy Morris. Australian hot rodding lost one of its true giants when Andy passed away on the evening of Monday, February 1 after a long battle with illness. Andy will long be remembered for his quirky approach to hot rodding, and his ability to make anything and everything, often from what other people would have thrown away. His Model A tourer was a tour-de-force of engineering excellence with its unique suspension, V8 engine and for Andy’s use of his AM initials all over it. Some laughed at it when he first brought it to mainland hot rod runs in the early 1970s, but those who were game enough to go for a ride with him returned understanding that it was special. I feel privileged to have been able to sit down with him in his shed in Cooee and interview him for the story on his life in hot rodding we published in Issue #3. The time I was able to spend with him was very special; even though he was clearly ailing he readily gave us his time and an insight into his unique approach to hot rodding. RIP Andy, you’ll be sorely missed.
