4 11 08

My dream car has always been a Morris Minor, I have wanted one for as long as I can remember. I just love their rounded shape and quirky design!

1948 saw the introduction of Alec Issigonis' Minor MM, which became the Minor II in 1952 and the Minor 1000 in 1956. The Minor series was built in many forms (Saloons, 'Woodys', Vans and Pick-ups) until 1971. The millionth Morris Minor was built in the first week of January 1961. I love the MM, II and 1000 but my favourite is the 1000 (below).

Will someone please buy me one for Christmas???? :-)

Oh my god, that's my dream car too! I love it (if only I could get over my driving phobia...)

my dad had one back in the 60s and he used to take my mum out on dates in it.

PS. No, I'm not a make-up artist, I just LOVE playing with cosmetics :D

They're quite cool. To be honest I'm not a car person though.

Such a classy car! I'd love to drive around in that - with 50s sunglasses and a chiffon scarf draped aroud my head like Audrey Hepburn xox
