      Re: Veteran Cars

      I know they were just cars back then also, but today, they are so wonderful to look at...

      I wonder if our cars today, will become as wonderful to see in 40 years time, as these are...?

        Hamilcar was a french producer of racing cars between 1921 and 1939.
        Yesterday there was a big meeting with lovers of these old veterans.

                            They are refusing since years to build a modern 2CV. The Pluriel is not built anymore and was not really fun and my wife needs an open roof.
                            And this one has the 0,9l 2 cylinder Turbo with 85hp - and this is big fun!

                            But also the Morris drives really nice! He has also a very special sound.

                              My first car was a 3-year-old Morris Minor 1000, 1965 vintage, but not open-top! I think it was 1980 that I eventually sold it. As to the special sound, you are so right, Ralf, it's recognisable immediately. If I hear one I can't stop turning round to see if by some chance it might be "mine". There was, and presumably still is, a thriving enthusiasts' club for it is an iconic little car.
                              But the one in your photo has had a respray - anonymous grey - they can't do that! The original green is part of the car!

                                Dear Ivy. The Morris Minor was not the Ford T (available in each colour, as long as it is black). There were a lot of clours available, especially since this is a late 1968 model. As far as i know, this is the original colour, maybe resprayed, but i am not sure. I think it is Snowberry White, but i will ask my friend to go for sure.
                                Here is a link to all the available Minor colours.

                                But maybe green was the only colour sold in Suffolk?
