I suppose someone will tell me now she's away for the rest of the week...sigh...

suzywong Wed 30-Mar-05 15:06:26

Nah Jan
she's sleeping off a bender in her Morris Maestro

jampots Wed 30-Mar-05 15:07:57

eerrr... Austin Maestro

JanH Wed 30-Mar-05 15:08:38

Oh, thanks, Sooz

<<creeps
away...>>

suzywong Wed 30-Mar-05 15:10:19

I wondered about that just as I pressed send, it was Austin wasn't it

but was it the Morris Ital?
and who did the Princess and the Maxi and the Allegro... ah, biscuit tin shaped cars

JanH Wed 30-Mar-05 15:11:18

Marina was Morris.

Others were Austins. (We had a Princess briefly, hell it was crap!)

suzywong Wed 30-Mar-05 15:13:28

did ya? they were the luxury car of their day though!!


I had a second hand Datsun Sunny and under the front mats were dozens and dozens of buttons all laid out in a single layer

just bumping this thread for you until Cod comes out of her stupor

jampots Wed 30-Mar-05 15:14:01

I had 2 Allegros...

JanH Wed 30-Mar-05 15:16:24

The one we had cost about £200 so somewhat past its prime! (The first time we filled it - unusual for us at the time - we found out that the tank leaked )

Thanks for bumps girls, feel free to go on discussing crap cars for me, I must go and be domestic

JanH Wed 30-Mar-05 15:17:07

What? Buttons? Didn't read it properly before...just laid out or stuck down? How weird!

JoolsToo Wed 30-Mar-05 15:18:23

we had an Allegro it was sh*te! (pardon my French!)

gingerbear Wed 30-Mar-05 15:21:31

Why were they always orange?
Or yellow
Or puke green?

gingerbear Wed 30-Mar-05 15:22:02

Maybe Cod is JP'ing?

suzywong Wed 30-Mar-05 15:24:27

or shit brown, don't forget the shit brown Maxis

jampots Wed 30-Mar-05 19:21:19

my first allegro was shit brown, the next was blue.

In fact it was my shit brown allegro I was driving when someone drove into the back of me after I had a failed fart on the way home from work (due to tummy upset - not laziness)

JanH Wed 30-Mar-05 19:23:55

You had TWO Allegros???

(Reaction to this is a bit like the Earnest handbag bloke losing both his parents!)

gingerbear Wed 30-Mar-05 23:40:05

so where is Cod then?

marthamoo Wed 30-Mar-05 23:43:03

Coddy, Coddy
Where are you?
We miss you
We are feeling blue.
Without you.
Boo hoo.

gingerbear Wed 30-Mar-05 23:50:05

marthamoo is a poet
but she doesn't know it
Did you have an allegro too?
Or are you just a fool?

(please excuse, tis late)

marthamoo Thu 31-Mar-05 00:00:53

My dad had an Avenger, does that count ?

gingerbear Thu 31-Mar-05 00:09:53

Was it an Austin Avenger in shit brown? If so then yes.
If it was Diana Rigg in black cat suit then no.
