The email indicated doesn't work. None of my co-horts know Bruce and I am receiving calls pertaining to the car, for which I have no answers. I guess my detective skills are lacking on this one.

If you go way down the classifies you will find the car listed. Same ad cut and pasted to bump with a photo of the assembled car.

Mark...never heard it called a Jelly Mold...Been asked many times what kind of VW it is though. I tell them it's a British one with the engine in the proper location. I'm the second owner and I have all papers from day 1. Has nearly 1/2 million miles on it and still gets 40 mpg. It's fun but it's getting tired, like me!

Back in the 60s when there was a Moggie Minor on every street in England, I had a girlfriend who called them Porridge because they were grey and boring. My stepson can't stand the f@rting noise from the exhaust on the overrun.

I quite liked the couple I had, apart from the 3000 brass screws that you have to undo to remove the floor to get at the mastercylinder.

I have been driving Minors for over 40 years, including my growing up years in South Dakota. They are a bit short on heater capacity at -30F, but they do get along pretty well in the snow with a set of chains on. At the moment I don't have one running, but the current collection has 4 restoration projects and four parts cars. The guys in our local Brit car club refer to my storage building as "where old Morrises go to die".
