Having got Morris home at last we wasted no time in taking him to his first car show this morning. There was a good turnout at Audley End today, with everything from pre-war classics to 1980s Audi Quattros on show.

Morris proved to be quite a conversation piece and no end of people came up to talk to us about him. Even as we walked around the show we could see a steady stream of people crowding around him, many of them no doubt sharing nostalgic memories of their youth!

Morris drew many an admiring crowd!
