Is the MMOC really funny towards youngsters modding Minors? This is what youngsters do to their cars, whether it's a beetle, mini or saxo. Or is it just a few individuals? If it's a modded calendar with page three models to start the ball rolling, lets do it!

hello i think most of the problem is thattodays youngsters were brought up with GTIs and that type of car me i was draged up through morris/ hillman and so on they are my classics, the young of today see the GTIs and see as there classics, there are clubs for montego,allegro, and seems that the following for them is the young ones. i personaly hate them, but there clubs have lots of members and seem very active,,grandad

Hi Dean. Are you in custom and modified register? They may be the best people to help organise a custom/modified calendar.

We could also make an online gallery of Modded minor, maybe just a very long thread on this forum would probably help. So please evrey one with a modded minor post a pic and we could make an archive of them :).

Thanks Ray, lets see if we can get the ball rolling. I've emailed Lee and Julian for thoughts and ideas.

Good idea, submitted my vote, still if this is sol within the club I think it will only atract members who already have an interest in Morris Minors :)

Of course Frank, good way to start though. We have to build on these things, lets see how it goes amongst members, then lets try the Minor Mag?

I think that to start with, if it is advertised on here and on mog.myfreeforum.org, and also in Minor Matters and Minor Monthly it should reach a good selection of both members and non members.
