Yes it was the Mini not the Minor *looks hard at new pup who was doing something or other that needed stopping and I missed the 'i'*
I don't particularly like the Mini - but that was the whole thing - it was supposed
to be tiny and give you cramp if you had to travel in the back.
Giving it more legroom is just ruining the design criteria - it needs
to be little and cute (from the outside anyway) not styled and the same size as any other little runaround
As for the Morris Minor - apparently they were THE European car to be seen in in Zimbabwe in the late 80's according to a friend in Bulawayo (this is back when they still an economy to speak of and luxuries like water were still possible...)
