These guys are goofing-off in the Kanvas by Katin
parking lot. They're trying to figure out how
much gas money they have.

Thanks, Bob D.

That's a 1950s Morris Minor, made in the UK. Great little cars - although Morris head honcho Lord Nuffield told designer Alec Issigonis (who later designed the Mini) it looked like "a poached egg on wheels". Great pics, cool site.

That was my 1952 Morris Minor. It had about 120,000 miles on it at the time. It would probably not pass any modern safety inspetion, new. Took about 200 yards to stop it from 60mph, if it ever reached that speed.
