i didnt realise how much i loved BL cars until i saw this thread.
Me ma had an Austin Mini (mustard colour, no rear seat belts, beautiful black plastic trim). this saw my mum and seven children back and forth brownies on a weekly basis.
Me Pa had an Austin Maestro (avoid the puddles/generally using it as a car to avoid having any troubles) and an Austin Metro, which saw a family of five use this as their single mode of transport for around 2/3years solid. 3 school runs per day plus a work commute for my dad which was an 1hr20min round trip for him and eventually became my eldest sisters first car
I still remember the number plate: B444 HRD
the good old days of '4 star' fuel
