Another Alec Issigonis success story, the Morris 1100 was the saloon version of the already hugely popular mini. For its time, it was also extremely sophisticated, bristling with technical features for car of its size.

Front disc brakes were standard, as was the interconnected fluid suspension ("Hydrolastic"), and with a transverse mounted front wheel drive and subframe construction the 1100 was not only spacious and comfortable, but was a great drivers car for the money.

Badge re-engineering was popular for British cars of the time, and the Morris 1100 was to find a home with other manufacturers such as Austin, Riley, Wolseley, MG and even Vanden Plas.

In 1967 the engine was upgraded to 1300cc, and there was even a 1300GT version released in 1969.

Due to the large number manufactured, the car is at the lower end of collectability, however models such as the GT and others released by makers such as Vandan Plas that have leather trim and the mandatory picnic tables are becoming much sought after and make a good investment.

Sep08 I consider mylsef a collector. I love silver age, purely for the art and over the top dialouge, but it has grown harder and harder over the past 3 years to find anything I'm looking for ata0resonable price. I understand the fact that every year fewer issues are available, movie buzz and the fact that people are realizing older issues are becoming more coleectible, they area0buy more anda0this drives the price up.I picked up a few of the new 52, OMAC, ACTION COMICS, ANIMAL MAN and DETECTIVE COMICS, I didn't get JUSTICE LEAUGE last week. I went on EBAY to see if I could pick one or two copies up wtf .I am not spending more than cover price for a week old comic.I understand the prices on old comics, I get that, but this instant market price increase reminds me of the 90 s implosion. Supply and demand and all that makes sense, but I saw some issues of J.L for nearly $10.00, this makes me not want to put any money into the new 52. First off, I wasn't impressed with any of the issues I picked up although Keith Giffens art in OMAC was updated Jack Kirby and I LOVE Kirby, so that was fun.I guess what I am trying to get at is the buyer creates the market value, and everyone buying these issues just because thay are number ones makes me nervous for the future of collecting. Amazing story plots,a0new artist/writers,a0introduction of new characters or the death of a key character makes me want to read a book,a0 not the #1 on the cover.If DC really blew my socks off and showed me something different, I would totally be on board, but for now it seems like more of the same, just resetting the issue number. I don't think, from what I have seen so far, the new 52 in particular will be all that collectible, but what do I know? I bought every variant of McFarlanes Spiderman when it came out, including the gold cover! I traded in so many comics to get those and am now kicking mylsef!!!! *** nceezuj *** [url= *** wnvblbdh *** ]wnvblbdh[/url] [link= *** qgjfdi *** ]qgjfdi[/link]
