Re: Hello!

Colour is a matter of personal choice; nobody is right, nobody is wrong. I don't mind Rose Taupe. When I bought mine, if I had been given a choice, I'd have gone for Almond Green or Bermuda Blue. I ended up with Teal Blue (Which is fine) but I bought the car, not the colour (I once bought a slime gr...

Re: Laptop: buying used

I had one similar to this a few weeks ago - https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-c202-11-6-intel-celeron-chromebook-16-gb-emmc-white-blue-10168528-pdt.html . Mine was £139 but the SRP was £209 and I expect they have sold out. It's OK for Internet access but it won't work wit...

Mostly Yorkshire Tea, though I had a bottle of Speckled Hen last night (A beer named after an MG car....I drove an MG yesterday too).

Not that this is a competition of course (perish the thought!) but, if it were, we've clearly already found the winner:- https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69682 :o I think the winner of a mileage competition would have to be the 10000 mile Goodwood test or (If stops allowed) ...

Re: How Far have you driven?

I think my longest trip, in the Traveller, was from Tredegar to Sutton on Sea, in Lincolnshire and back in a day. An old friend if my father's, who had done National Service with him, was dying and we went to see him. It was a foul day but the Traveller got us there and back. Indeed, my father's fri...

Re: A Very Beautiful Morris Car

My Dad's cousin had an Empire green one years ago and it always impressed me at what a quality vehicle it was. Alan Yes it looks it. My father has said that Nuffield cars were better made than BMC, which in turn were better than those of BL (This was mirrored in the finish of MG models, a T Type be...

Re: A Very Beautiful Morris Car

I saw a very nice Traveller version at the Severn Valley Railway classic vehicle day a couple of years ago. I'm not in a position to take on more cars and whilst an MO wouldn't be right at the top of my list of further purchases (A pre war MG or Morgan 4/4, Land Rover Series or MG Z or Y Type would ...

Re: Morris Minor Music

I’ve still got a radio cassette, that came out of the car I sold to make way for the Traveller (It’s one where you can remove it easily when you leave the car, though I doubt anyone would want to steal a radio cassette any more) but I’ve just not got around to fitting it. My MG Midget has a Sharpe r...

Re: It's the rules,mate.

There is an old saying that rules exist for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men . Sadly too many these days are governed by flow charts. I generate very little waste but since the council generally failed to collect my meager recycling bins and since I am not allowed into my local re...

Rolling tax exemption

I think I am right in saying that the legislation, that will allow 1978 vehicles (Like my mother's MGB GT) free road tax, from this April, was passed in April 2018 and that this April, the law will be passed, that will allow the same for 1979 vehicles in 2020. I have tried to confirm this with FBHVC...

Re: The vicar's car

One is tempted to think that it serves him right for removing the dear old trafficators! Whatever was he thinking of? :-? I drove a car with trafficators and was a bit concerned that most of the modern drivers wouldn't be looking for them or know what they were. I think if they could be rigged up t...

I've still got the same page, without a button. It has crossed my mind, that since I am using an older operating system, could that be a problem? I don't pretend to understand how these things work (Yes I can operate a computer and have even created a few simple, non database websites) and unless a ...

Don't know why that was.......or why I'm shown as not being a member of MMOC :-? . Anyway I've fixed the message issue if not the issue of membership. Computer related things can be a law unto themselves, which is why I don't own a modern car.
