Morris Minor newspaper article

It was nice to meet lots of people at last weekend's National Rally, even if we had to hold on to the gazebo whilst having a conversation, due to the strong wind! We thought some of you might be interested in seeing an article written about our Minor, produced in our local newspaper: the Express and...

Sat-nav in a Minor

I'm thinking about getting a sat-nav, which I'd like to be able to use in my Minors as well as in my modern car. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which make/model would be best? I'm only looking for UK maps, and ideally I'd also like traffic information to be available, although I don't have a...
