New Morris Van

I like the retro styling.

That is nuts. I always wondered what happened to the Morris name after British Leyland went bust. I wondered if unipart retained rights to the name or it went to China when MG Rover went bust in 2005. Very strange looking vehicle.

My dad had 2 Morris Marinas and a Morris Ital back in the day. I remember as a boy when Morris Minors - in particular the "traveller" variant which was the van with the wooden panels was not an uncommon sight.

"Premium" model. I.e. they're making 500 of them and the tooling cost will be divided by 500, instead of 500,000 per year like a Corolla. =D
