Re: Newbie

Welcome Pete. It's particularly good to see another 'youngster' (if I may call your son that) getting involved with classic cars. The Owners Club is indeed excellent and you will have access to lots of help if you need it. Enjoy your car once you get it on the road.

Re: A bit cheeky

I would guess that there are a few forum members whose Minors have cost them that much and more? They probably don't want to say so though. Those of us who bought cheapish Minors in the past and have the time, space and abilities to restore them at home have a great advantage over others who do not...

Re: A bit cheeky

Then I spotted this, maybe we undervalue our moggies. https://www.morrisminor.org.uk/car-for-sale/211-1968-trafalgar-blue-4-door I think we do. Prices are definitely going up for Travellers. £12,500 is now common in adverts (although that doesn't mean they sell for that), when a few years ago it wo...

Re: Positive v negative earth?

I expect I would notice the difference, I do notice these things. Frequently. Mine have been in for 115 years. The expected life of a plastic window is only 20 years - they may not rot but they dry out and crack, plus the opening mechanisms frequently break, or the double glazing is compromised and...

Re: Grille Badges

We have an AA badge which we matched as close as we could to early 1959 when our car was first registered. We also have a Civil Service Motoring Association (CSMA) badge with a Queen's crown, again to match the era. A lot of these badges come with a King's crown, and indeed we had one of those for a...

Re: Minor Million ?? Cheap

It's a reasonable price but not especially cheap. We bought one a few years ago for £4.

Re: Morris 1000 Doors

I guess it depends how bad it is. Do you have any photos? I got rust in the bottom of one of the doors on our Traveller and the local body shop I use managed to repair it so well that no one would ever know there had ever been a problem. As a bonus the door actually fitted better after the repair th...

Re: Where to purchase cars?

You also need to decide if you want a project car that is driveable but will need work doing over time or whether you want a car that is sorted and reliable that you can just drive without worrying. The latter obviously comes with a higher price tag.

Re: Where to purchase cars?

Have a look on the Cars For Sale section of this Forum. There is also good advice to be found there about buying. Also ask around at your local MMOC branch to see if anyone knows of anything for sale. Again, people may have advice and be prepared to look at potential purchases with you. Also the cla...

Re: Painter req for my moggy

I'm based in Bromsgrove and I use S H Auto (www.shauto.co.uk) for all my rust repairs and paintwork. I've never had a complete car done but they repaired and painted the rusty passenger door on our Traveller and even the mechanic I use (who's as fussy as me) said it was one of the best paint jobs he...

Re: Petrol Cap Seal

When I fill our Traveller I usually stop at the first click if not before. As well as stopping the seepage going uphill it avoids petrol sitting in the filler pipe which, unless it has been replaced recently, is almost certainly not ethanol resistant and will, over time, start to degrade.
