Call for MM related articles / featured cars for website

Postby Cam » Mon Nov 07, 2005 5:27 pm

Calling all MM owners!

I'm looking to update the Series MM website ( http://seriesmm.mmoc.org.uk ) with a few stories, a 'featured cars' section and a restoration section.

So, I need lots of pictures and articles about YOUR MM!

PLEASE NOTE: The Series MM was the first type of Morris Minor produced between September 1948 and February 1953 (Chassis numbers: 501 > 179839). It's only these cars that we are interested in for the Series MM register website!

Doesn't matter if it's sitting in a garage rusting away (like mine - ahem. :oops: ) or if it's concours and just gets the occasional service and polish! We need to know about it!!

This is for the benefit of the MM community (and general Morris Minor community) to try and bring more people together and read about what each other is doing!

There will be sections for restorations too, so if you want your car featured in the restoration section then please send me some info and I can add it to the website! This section will be ongoing so that fresh information can be added as and when you send it to me.

You can send all the info to:

cam.shaw@mmoc.org.uk or seriesmm@mmoc.org.uk

The information can be in the form of text, doc, html, jpg, gif, etc, etc.

I look forward to creating a really great website for us all to enjoy, so get typing and I'll get uploading! :D

Cam.

Yes, please Onne! If you can write about the car (with pictures too), I can put them on the website! I look forward to receiving them from you! :D

I wish! :lol:

I only have 4! Next year I will hopefully be looking at an LCV, but I have no spare cash at the moment and I have not completely decided if I'm getting a van or a pickup.

I think most hardcore enthusiasts tend to peak around 5 (not counting Sandy Hamilton who probably has about 35!) so, it's 'normal'. :o

Thing is though, you keep having them offered to you and it's difficult to say no, but I'm learning (slowly!). :lol:

See? 4 IS normal!

Kate, you are NOT normal. You need MORE cars. :wink:

Personally, I think a matt green/brown army coloured pickup with a ton of tools in the back would suit you. Not rusty, but battered and well used. :D

Come on Kate, you're letting the side down! Don't you know that it's mandatory for all messageboard members to fill up every last spare inch of their garden/garage/road with rusty minors? :D :wink:
