Morris Minor as Wedding Car?

In the run up to the wedding there was no time to fix the recalcitrant starter motor so guess what Muggins was doing on the big day![frame]Image[/frame]

Good job Minors have crank handles (la manivelle in french) - I trust you, the car and of course the bride, got to the church on time.

I don't think any of the French cars I've had over the last 35 years ever had a crank handle, and boy I could have done with one now and again !!!!

A good way to get a broken thumb if it kicks back. Thumb over the top of the handle.

My car starts fine on the starter motor but when I drove it to my brother's wedding I started it on the handle anyway just to show off :roll: :D
