Saw an almond green saloon driving down welford road in kingsthorpe Northampton today, I didnt catch the number or how many doors as I just recognised the noise when it drove past so ran and peeped over the fence to see it in the distance, is that a bit sad? :lol:

Been away on the Norfolk broads for a week, saw a few classics but Minor-wise I saw a bright yellow pick-up (GYM 589J, I think) with what I think was a jaguar mascot on the bonnet parked up along the broads not far from Norwich.

Also a tatty traffy blue saloon (TAX XXXG or TAR XXXG) driving towards Norwich on my way home today.

Saw a very smart looking early Series2 in Almond green going through Tenbury Wells yesterday. I'd just parked my Minor in the car park and was on foot so waving wasn't really an option!
cheers

Trafalgar Blue 2 door saloon passed me in opposite direction at a roundabout on the outskirts of Leamington yesterday. My wife noticed it before I did - always a good sign :)

Many Minors of all types were in Christchurch Park in Ipswich on Sunday to take part in the annual classic car run to Felixstowe. I have photos of as many as I could find.

Today, Wednesday, about 3.45pm there was a cream 2 door early 1000 turning right towards Felixstowe at the Sainsburys roundabout. I was a couple of cars behind in my MG BGT and turned the other way. I thought I would be able to remember the number but I can't! There was no suffix.
