A 1/43 Morris Minor from Corgi that remains a favorite. (pics)
In 1957 this Morris was, by American standards, very minor.

But this Morris was really special, at least to those who watched the BBC.

The show was entitled, "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em" and its popularity centered on the stuntwork of star Michael Crawford. The show ran for two series in 1973, 2 Christmas specials the next couple of years, and a final series in 1978.

In 1995 Corgi brought the mechanical star to our scale. (Being businessmen, they managed to lose the rear doors in the process.)

Okay, I confess that I've been doing a little house-keeping, going through storage areas of "the good old days." And I'm also having some fun with trying to figure out the new camera. Enjoy!
