Hat tip – Loyal CC follower Big Paws
This is something I have always wanted to do.
Make annoying parking lot dings and scratches a thing of the past.
Except for the dings you self-generate by opening the door to get out.
They go mouldy if you leave em uncovered.
I have a dislike of these cars because they remind me of an unpopular French teacher.They’re probably great cars but I can’t see one without thinking of Miss Banks.My brother put a potato up the exhaust,she hated kids
You can almost, ALMOST do this at the local H-E-B in my wife’s MINI. (not Mini, MINI.) Yes, I have attempted. The problem is that the cart spots are often already full of carts.
If only she and I both drove one, we could probably fit them nose-to-nose in the garage.
I think this is an A30 – the A35 had a painted grill with a chrome surround to make the grill look bigger. Never liked these much , the Morris Minor was a superior car, better steering and slightly more space.
The A35 was actually not that much bigger than the supersized shopping carts at some big-box stores nowadays. Its acceleration off the line was also roughly equivalent to a shopping cart.
Seeing an A35 parked in this way makes me expect to see Wallace jump about celebrating the success of his new invention of the shopping center parking lot insta-shelter, while Gromit looks at him and shakes his head.
At least he had the “van” (paneled-off wagon) model so he can jump out the back instead of opening the door into the side.
I grew up in a northern climate and, like all curious boys I had to, at least once, put my tongue on a sub zero piece of metal. My one time experiment involved the trunk of an Austin A35.
Saw someone do that with A Suzuki Samurai once
I parked my Samurai halfway up the steps to the Architecture building at Georgia Tech a few times. Amazingly did not get a ticket.
Ah yes! The Austin A30 and A35. I’ve always loved these cute little cars. I have a thing for Morris Minors too.
STOP THAT ! .
I just bought a Morris Minor and a buddy has an Austin A-35 he keeps pimping me with ~
I have limited self control when it comes to stupid Orphan vehicles and articles like this are NOT HELPING !! .
Actually, it’s a ‘nicked off Facebook’ tip
