Morris Minor, Fenchurch

Meet the latest addition to the family

Arthur

I've just got back from Liverpool, where I went to look at a 1970 two-door Minor saloon that somebody advertised on the MMOC forum: free to a good home. It's a bit tatty and will probably need new sills soon, but it's roadworthy and it has a long MOT. I'm returning to pick it up on Sunday morning. Very pleased. :)

Continuing in the HHGTTG naming theme, I briefly considered calling it Ford Prefect, but decided that would just be too surreal! So, Arthur it is then. Only trouble with that name is he doesn't actually have any Dents as far as I could see...
