I was delighted to read in the Guardian on Saturday that the Morris Minor had been voted the most British motoring design. As a child I was impressed that my dad had once owned a Morris Traveller (an estate version with Tudor-style timber whacked on the back) and in answer to questions about what I would want when I was older I'd politely reply a Morris Minor and a pig. (Yes, this does say something about me as a person. I'm just not sure what).
Here's the complete top ten list of the UK’s most quintessentially British vehicles:
(I would like to have provided images for those of you unfamiliar with these British greats but I am still experiencing technical difficulties so I can't. Click on the link if you don't have a clue).
What a fantastic list! I would like to invite you to say how many of these vehicles you have travelled in. You need to beat my nine to win! (Bonus prize to the person who works out which one of these designs has not been graced by my presence).
