                                        The MS-893 was originally designed for agricultural use but, as the 893A was developed into
                                        a touring machine.  Not quite as powerful as the deluxe Rallye Minerva, the Commodore had a
                                        180 hp Lycoming O-360-A2A up front.  The above shot, by Geoff Goodall, was taken at Perth's

                                        flying and is currently registered to an owner in the Narrandera area of NSW.   Phil Vabre took
