    Morris Minor in NSB Florida

    When we were leaving New Smyrna Beach Florida I stopped at a local coffee roasters to stock up with some of their coffee.
    Sitting outside was this great looking Morris Minor. The owner was enjoying a coffee and morning paper.

    Car looked great.

    David - that is one great looking car. Did the owner share any stories of the car's history?

    (Was that TR3 also parked at the coffee shop?)

    Thanks.

    Hello Tom

    The TR3 was not at the coffee shop that was an error in my posting. I thought that I had removed it.

    Did speak to the owner briefly and he said it was in fairly good condition when he got it. Had it sprayed by a pro. We were on the way home so I did not want to chat too long as my wife was waiting in the truck.

    I took care of the TR3 attachment. YOu do that in "advanced editor" then "Manage Attachments".

    Think the back wheel appears level with the rest. Doesn’t look professional... but at the end of the day she or he is driving a lovely car while I am not
