Looks like it from the ribbons. LikeLike I wondered myself about the wedding. I didn’t ask but maybe so. LikeLike “Austin” as in Mini? Awesome!! LikeLike Yes, it was called the Austin Mini in some markets. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person I hear “Austin Mini” and this comes to mind… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini lol! LikeLike They were great town cars, nipping in and out of traffic. When I see one on the road, I am struck by how small they are – they look minuscule. LikeLiked by 1 person LOL, perhaps that’s because they were? More often than not, the only time they were ever seen around here was if a circus came to town; ) LikeLike And that was a rarity; ) LikeLike And of course there’s the (not so) Mini Cooper now. VERY few of the “early” (Mini-Minor) version made it to this side of The Pond (and likely none of the one featured in your pic; ). Love old cars David, thanks for this!

The floor pan was so thin and worn that when I went through a puddle the interior of the car filled with a fine mist. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person LOL! LikeLike Have you owned/driven old cars? LikeLike Not personally no, but I have relatives and know other people who do. (This is high season for car and motorcycle rallies; antique tractor & machinery shows; plus now, as the end of August approaches, the country fairs are getting started as well… We need to pack a lot into a fairly short summer season in this climate, so they’ve been a fairly common sight on the roads lately: ) LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
