Re: Seat straps

All metropolitan police Morris minor pandas were fitted with diaphragms to the front seats to cope with large policemans bottoms. Mine still has the original ones fitted and show no signs of wear.

Re: Not what they used to be!

I remember back in the late 40s or early 50s a scrap yard on the Leatherhead road in Chessington where the owner allowed my mate and I to wander round and sit in the various old vehicles including model A Fords and an old London transport bus but the best one was a second world war Hawker Hurricane ...

Re: What would your dream garage look like?!

My friends garage in Cape Cod. The stairs at the back lead to a viewing gallery. He belongs to The British car club in the USA. I' always very envious when i go to visit him. He has two other garages with post lifts and a series one Landrover.

Re: ..and I thought all Morris Minor drivers were nice chaps

Having just read the post by Win regarding reading the Daily Mail at the family planning clinic reminded me of many years ago when the then Mrs B persuaded me to have a vasectomy. After many doubts I finally summoned up the courage and made an appointment for the procedure. This was duly carried out...

Re: LAS618

I agree with Firedrake its a disciplinary offence to use the PNC for unauthorised use. You could become a cowboy wheel clamper the DVLA give out all personnel details to them.

If I could catch a stolen frog eyed sprite in my panda after going sideways round the Robin Hood roundabout on the A3 I could have caught this one.

Re: I just do not believe some people!

I posted the message about the Austins. It was a few years back now we were on a club holiday to Cirencester, we found a car park which was nearly full but managed to park two short chassis sevens in one bay inside the designated lines. Both cars had paid the required amount and were displaying tick...

Convertible MOT

I have been thinking of purchasing a convertible to go with my Panda. I'm not too bothered about it being a factory manufactured one or a converted saloon one, but if it's a converted one would I have to have it MOTd every year as it may be classified as structurally altered.

Re: Ginger bush

I did think about mother in laws tongue but I'm told it needs very acidic soil to thrive. I think I'm going to give up gardening as I don't seem to have much luck. Gardeners are supposed to have green fingers but after delving into the Ginger bush my fingers are certainly not Green.

Re: Ginger bush

I'm afraid that the Ginger bush has finally met it's end. It has turned completely Grey with no sign of life. There is no sign of the pussy that used to hide behind it. I suspect that the said pussy is now in my neighbours garden. He seems to have given it the name " cooking fat " which he keeps sho...

Re: Hello and engine number.

As the DVLA representative for the Austin seven owners club I can concur with the previous messages, it may be better to keep things as they are, I know from previous experience you may be opening a can of worms.
