A Day by the Coast and Classic Cars
Over 400 vehicles on display on Barry Island's Promenade.
Learned to drive in one. If you are wondering what the panda is doing sitting in front of the Morris, it is a reference to the nick name these cars were given in the 1960s. Why panda? Because they appeared as black and white on the monochrome TVs of the period, in the cops and robbers sitcom, Z-cars. Most plausible explanation thrown up by google.
Wish I had had one,
Had one, but never drove one. Not a Morgan anywhere to be seen.
