Default The"Pics of my Amazon on the road"thread...

Can't find one so thought I'd start it

If there is one just point me in the right direction please.

Just thought it would be fun to see pics of you and or your cherished ones out on the open road where they should be..so no pics of it in a showroom or in a concourse line up in a field somewhere..just out and about and in general use.

I myself have chosen to have mine as an only car, admittedly I have a couple of motorbikes I often use but car wise the Amazon is my only fourwheeled transport.

Will start the ball rolling and no doubt be adding to the thread as time goes by but looking forwards to seeing forum members post up their work horses

Swedish mmmm roads hehehe! ok not all like this..


Although not 100% waterproof it does venture out in the rain..


Enjoying the country roads last weekend.


About as near to a church I get nowadays..



So...hope this thread gets going.. plenty of pics,chat and banter welcome

Great idea for a thread! Really nice pics above. Must get some more pics of mine. Here is one from a road trip a couple of years ago. Yet another red 2 door...







And finally, roads built for driving a classic..

This is my favourite recent picture of Magnus, even though you can only see half the car. My daughter leaning casually against the rear wing while watching the neighbour across the road tinkering with his Series 2 Morris Minor (just visible)....I also have some camping pics I'll have a look for.

My '64 131 ..

Had it for 18 years now - done nothing* to it other than keeping it running and MOT'ed.

*Well, added the wing mirrors and other accessories, sanded/painted the little rust-spots etc.

Here is my favorite picture of my car - some have seen it before.

Okay, two pictures. The first is after a 600 mile trip across the Rockies in December. The second was on the maiden voyage - loose gas line!

Was it lowered when you bought it? Looks like you changed it all back in the pic on the Rockies trip..

@ Khe Sanh ; Like the roof arial was thinking of putting one there whenever I get round to a fitting radio ...
