A late Sunday quiz.

Name the motorway, the year... and those three cars. 🙂

Re: A late Sunday quiz.

I’ll take a guess, M1, late 50’s, MG, Austin & Jag....

Could be wrong with the cars

Re: A late Sunday quiz.

Well done guys, that was quick!

1959 and the M1 it is. As for those cars well it looks like a Morris 1000 on the inside, an A40 Austin centre? and either a Mark 8 or a Mark 9 Jag on the outside. 

Amazing to think there was no centre crash barrier back then but to be fair, there were almost no vehicles either.

@Minivanman  surprised  that is a morris 1000 did not think they were in production in 1959 as my first car in 1964 was a 1000 but you are right they were being produced in 1959!!!Thumbs_Up

@TTman 

Maybe not the 1000, but the model itself was certainly in production during the 1950s. I had an old Post Office van one and jeepers what a shed that was. Much later I had a Traveller which was a far better drive. Sold it for a song, now worth a fortune. 

Always fancied one of those split screen soft top ones though. 🙂 

@Champnet 

Looking out of the window of the Blue Boar services?

@jab1  Did you look it up ?

@Minivanman  Is that the service station where Southerners reckon the north starts ?

Re: A late Sunday quiz.

@Champnet Which bit? The M1 had already been identified, and I knew about the Morris Minor engine size because my dad was in the motor trade, and I used to (and still do), have all sorts of useless motoring information in my memory. Sadly, there's also a lot I've forgotten over the years.
