Traveller HTD454K

It was Teal Blue with Limeflower interior (and 2-tone red/beige drivers seat!). It had a fair bit of bodywork done and new paint but the underside was a sea of bodged...

Re: Suffix registrations

I think the short letter was E and F came in August 1967. E was the short one. Jan 1 - Jul 31 1967. Changeover month was moved to August (F from Aug 1 1967) allegedly following pressure from the Motor Traders Association, in order to attract increased new sales at a traditionally 'quiet' time of ye...

Re: MMOC newbie here

Agree about wipers. Rainex already applied. First 'proper' drive today. 65 mile round trip to Guildford for family lunch. Leisurely but uneventful using back-roads, not A3.

Re: MMOC newbie here

Car collected yesterday and driven the 25 miles home in pouring rain. I promise I didn't drive like a five-year-old, just rather (too) cautiously.

MMOC newbie here

Having only just applied for MMOC membership, and having just purchased my first Minor since 1986 (both done yesterday), I thought I'd say hello. I'm Richard, living in south London but soon relocating to Worcestershire. My Minor is a black '56 four-door with 55,000 miles on the clock. I take delive...
