Re: ft young drivers scheme

Ive had the same problem,TBH if your under 21 forget anything over 1500cc (this is where MGBs get stuck)
Ive been with FJ for 5 years,the price never came down,the service got worse,as did the mistakes.
ive moved to Lancaster for my 1973 Reliant Rebel, £170 fully comp,opposed to £438 tpft with FJ.

Re: speedo accuracy??

Re: Ideas to attract new young blood into the MMOC

you do not need to be a member of the minor club to own and use a morris minor,so the club has to ask itself what can it do to make being a member a vital part of owning one?
