That reminds me of a Beetle a mate once owned. Great clouds of steam from the exhaust manifold when you went over a puddle. Like travelling in a sauna...

strangely there are 2 moggy's close to my house, one is fully restored with an awful paintjob, and the other is in rather a sorry state, my wife to be used to have one, which I drove had no brakes, and holes in the floor....

I remember once when my Dad was driving ours going over a bump in the road, and the keys fell out of the ignition, the car carried on regarless and my Dad didn't even notice until I pointed out that the keys were on the floor by his feet!

They don't make 'em like that nowadays!

Morris Min-or! Nothing fin-ah!

Moggy fact: the ridge running up the middle of the bonnet is (allegedly) due to British Leyland having the bonnet press formed before the design was finished - the designers put an extra 2 inches on the car's width (which took a few mph off the top speed) but they couldn't afford to retool to plant. So they split each bonnet and welded a strip down the middle. That kind of planning is the British Motor Industry all over...

Yes, like the Capri we used to have that could be started witha pair of kitchen scissors...

the best feature?...the "dipper" for the headlights was on the floor, next to the accelerator on some models, great when driving down a country road at night, and you go to brake, and miss the brake pedal, not only do you not slow down, but you can't see either!...

If I remember correctly it was marketed as the family saloon with sports car performance. Obviously sports cars have come a long way since then
