Aren't LCV's technically Morris Minors anyway? I mean the Oxford van is a Morris LCV, so there must be some distinction?

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.


Sounds good to me... now, if anyone would like to supply it.. ;-)

...and a Trabant 601, Tatra T603, Series II Landy, Ausin Gypsy, Moskvitch-401, Vincent HRD Black Shadow and a Huge garage.


Mmmmmm....

Nyum.

: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?


Well, I did get the letting agreement on our property changed so I'm allowed to keep untaxed and unMOTd cars on the property, but they've got to go in the garage :(

Hmmm. Wonder why you are only allowed to keep them in the garage? Sounds a bit daft to me. :-?

The original letting contract said "No unMOT'd / unTaxed cars"; I got it altered, because I was - back then - planning on getting the car that is now Ray's splitscreen africar.

I think, 'cos we've got quite a long drive (2 minors), a garage and a parking space instead of a lawn the owners may have been concerned that it might end up like a couple of the other houses in the street (part restored mini, part restored beetle, both parked on gardens). Which of course is *ridiculous*. If I did that I'd not be able to get the bits of my motorbike out of the garage....

Just bringing this topic back up.

Thanks to the folks who have contributed to the website already. I have had promises from a few other members, but we could do with some more cars on there!

Onne, SR and anyone else on the messageboard with a Series MM , I'm looking in your general direction too! :wink: :lol:

I have found a photo of my Series MM on disc but I'm not sure how to send it. If you could send me instructions on my email address I will have a go. Can you get hold of a copy of the front cover of Sept. Minor Matters featuring my car. I also have some technical info on modifications which I could send you.
Can I run an advert for Series MM sweat shirts and polo shirts?
Cheers
Michael

Yep, all can be done Mike! :D

I can scan photographs into the computer too if you have some of those as well.

I could ask David for the picture of the Minor Matters cover or just scan my copy in.

Nice to see a good selection of cars now on the site. Hopefully there are a still few more of you out there who could send Cam details of your cars, so that they can be added too.
