I am hatching a plan… O dear, I hear Mr F cry. Thats always dangerous when that happens…
I am going to sell my Morris Traveller and invest the money from the sale in getting my old 1959 (I know he’s ancient) Morris 1000 back on the road. Sadly we parked him down the woods for several years before moving him into one of the barns Poor Morris, He has not faired well. Interior is now ruined so new carpets and reupholstered seats will be needed. Body work looks bad, because it is bad. Lots of rot pretty much everywhere. But, Mr F reconditioned the gutsy engine on him shortly before I took him off the road, which was about 17 years ago now, and the super boosted brakes meant I could stop on a sixpence instead of having to give 2 weeks notice before stopping.
I cant tell you how excited I am. I love this car, I mean, I truly love this car. I bought it when I was 17 years old and when the prams and babies wouldnt fit in him I couldnt bear to sell him, so Ive been declaring SORN each year to keep the registration number.
New colours I think instead of the old dark blue. I fancy something really quite bright, like turquoisey teal with red leather interior. Ooooo. Or failing that its going to be Cadbury’s purple. I may not be able to eat chocolate anymore but I can jolly well drive it
What was your first car I wonder?
