Morris (Mini) Mascot
FURY and resentment are aroused by the Mini Cooper S among the old brigade who have paid far more money for far less in the way of performance and road holding. With its hefty 1,275 c.c. twin-carburetter engine, the S is the rally man's choice but many people settle for the 998 c.c. model which looks good value at around £200 less; it's cheaper than an Automatic 850 Mini. £642+£150 p.t.=£792.

EVEN Alec Issigonis when he designed Morris Minor more than 14 years back could scarce have believed it would retain its popularity for so long. But still the public come for it and the model remains a best-seller. Reason: it is well proportioned, cheap to run and it has a heart of gold. A winner if ever there was one. £426+£99 p.t.=£525
