Picture of the week - Morris Minor

It's interesting to see how cars that basically dominated the streets some years before have almost totally disappeared. Examples? Take the Volkswagen Beetle/Bug. If you look at a photograph taken in Germany or Switzerland in the mid sixties you will see lots of these cars and they clearly outnumbered anything else. Probably same with the Morris Minor in the UK for example. Today though it's quite special to see one independently of classic car events or special occasions. Well, the Morris Minor pictured here was just parking outside a house close to where I live. It may have seen better times, but it's a lovely piece of machinery and so much different to what people buy today to commute and drive to holiday destinations.
