At work in the 1970s, we quite often took the breakdown truck out - with it's Harvey Frost crane on the back - to drag an old Morris Minor in. The bottom link coming out was a sure sign of complete neglect as they only require simple regular lubrication. That Minor van certainly looks a neglected thing doesn't it and was unlikely to be 10 years old at the time. Like Mini Vans, they were pretty much worthless at the time but look at their values now :shock:
