1964 Morris Minor 1000

01 Jul

Old cars don’t need to be of luxury models to be charming. I this Morris Minor 1000 is very nice, and this is not only because it’s built the same year I was born. No it’s a real blue beauty! Morris Minor is a British economy car that was manufactured by the Morris Motor Company between 1948 to 1971. It was the first British made car to sell more than one million units and the 1000 series was the most popular. This blue beauty was spotted in Mariefred on the Day of Steam and it was not only me who captured it with a camera.

A Morris Minor 1000, from 1964, parked outside Mariefreds Värdshus on the Day of Steam 2011.

    Ooooo I like the effects you have used on the photos. I was confused at first & thought they were illustrations 🙂

    Hurrah for Morris Minors 😉

      Hi Katie!

      I’m glad you liked it. It’s called HDR (High Dynamic Range) a phototechnique that, IMO, captures details and colors much better. I’ve edited these car-pictures a little bit harder than usual to make them look more cartoonish. No wonder you thought it was illustrations. Nice cars anyway, all of them! 🙂
