Today small family ballad in the countryside! A lot of smiles when you meet people, it is true that the traveller is not a common car in France !!

No mechanical problems, the car runs quietly at 90 kms / h. Only "problem", the gearbox, it cracks a bit in first but this old rolls well. This is my first real outing with her and it was fun!

First is a non synchro straight cut gear. It was a little noisy when car was new. To shift into first when stopped, pull the lever back into second to stop the gears turning, then into 1st. Best not to try getting in 1st with car moving.

Today I greased my trunnions ..... I also greased two knees, the back of my right ear and far too much garage floor. I really need to refine my procedure

Achieved an absolutely irrational goal of equalizing the total mileage on my two Minors today. Both 1960 cars, a pearl grey convertible and a black four door sedan, achieved 190,978 miles. Oh, and put the top up on the convertible for the winter season.

1963 Morris Mini Traveller "Miss Marple"
John, that may be irrational, but I also play games with my odometers, looking for all even numbers, all odd numbers, palindrome numbers, and any other pattern I can think of. While I know the mileage on my MG is reasonably accurate, being only the third owner in 65 years, my Morris doesn't have it's original speedometer. I can only guess that it has a boat load of miles on it. I've been driving our Traveller around all summer, and I hardly ever bother to look at the odometer unless it's to tell me I need gas.

"Miss Marple" took a People's Choice award for the fourth year in a row two weeks ago at the Chicago British Car Festival, and we are going to a local show in about an hour. As everyone who owns a Traveller knows, you can't go anywhere without people asking questions. I love the looks she get from kids, since the car is the right scale for smaller people. It sure looks tiny parked next to something like a giant Nissan Armada. I thinbk I'll park next to some giant pickup truck today, unless they have the show set up in classes.
