Its been a few weeks since we went to the Morris Minor Owners Club's Morris Centenary rally at Cornbury in Oxforshire, but I thought I'd share some photos of our visit.
|Where did I park the car?|
In the run up to the rally I had spent a couple of weekends sanding down and respraying Archie's rear wings and tarting him up generally. The day before the rally I did all the final little tweaks; washing, t-cutting and waxing his paintwork, polishing the chrome and even painting the tyres with special black tyre paint. Afterwards, my Archie looked stunning (as long as you didn't look too closely at his paintwork or rusty patches!).
As soon as we arrived at Cornbury on the Saturday morning Monkeychild and I parked up Archie amongst his Moggy counterparts, whilst Husband headed towards the campsite to put up the tent. Our first stop was the auto jumble where I found a boot-lid and chrome hinges to replace Archie's manky ones and other bits and bobs for servicing, such as plugs, leads, gaskets and filters. Not only do I love jumble sales, but auto jumbles too because you can pick up some great bargains- just like village hall jumble sales!
Here are a couple of photos (edited somewhat otherwise I'll bore you to tears!) of the cars that really stood out for me ...

We had a brilliant weekend - everyone was friendly and even the evening disco turned out to be fun with a decent live band; Monkeychild and I couldn't help but strut our funky stuff, later chilling out and observing some classic examples of Dad Dancing!
I was sorry to leave on Sunday after we had packed up the tent and made a final circuit of the stands. Hopefully next year we'll make it to some more Moggy rallies and have just as much fun.
