Morris Minor 1

By jacomes
Continuing the classic cars series with the Morris Minor, this one seen in a car park in Penzance (close to the A30 van but on a different day) B&W and colour version.
I remember my father (who was in the trade for many years) bringing home various Morris Minors, and going on holiday to Devon in a convertible one (a whole day's drive from London in those days, including stops for breakfast , lunch and tea).

Thanks to everyone for your much appreciated votes and comments on Austin A30 , or indeed for looking in.

3 OF MY UNCLES HAD ONE OF THESE SO WHEN I WAS JUVENILE I WAS CONSTANTLY DRIVEN IN THESE. IN MALTA MORRIS AND AUSTIN'S WERE THE MOST POPULAR CARS OF THE SIXTIES AND SEVENTIES. MY WIFE'S FATHER HAD A MORRIS 8 PRE-WAR MODEL WITH SPLIT WIND SCREEN!!!!!

Had several of these years ago including a retired red GPO van, they’re almost indestructible. Always plenty of spares around for them too.

Great series,. Many years ago we had a 1000 traveler which took four of us camping in Austria with no trouble at all, we passed cars broken down on some of the mountain roads, a great car.

Great memories. When I was at school, a friend's father had the Traveller, with the wooden side panels. Polished up, it looked very good and quintessentially British.

We had a split screen version.
I do miss the simplicity of these cars (a bit).
