At one point in my life, somewhere in the late 1970s, we had a car just like this, a pale blue Morris Traveller. It was much loved though not in quite such good condition as this one. Ours had moss growing on the window sills! I can't quite remember for sure but I think that may have been the car that met a very sad end, when some hooligans set light to it outside our house.
For 'Cars I have known # 1' see here. Isn't it awful when the cars you most fondly remember are 'classic' now (not quite vintage yet!) and featuring in car shows.
