Artie

Lawrie has made a number of mistakes when it comes to buying vehicles. 
Artie he regards as his biggest mistake, due to the sheer about of work the poor little thing needs. It was sold as working, and that the driver had been using it go to to work. This was a lie. 

Current Status - Requires major surgery

History

Artie was built towards the end of the Morris Minor production run, and was built by Leyland. She has evidently had a had life, and the LMM team suspect it was the subject of someone's first attempts at both welding, and car restoration. The quality of work on the car is shocking. The subframe is bent where it's been picked up by a forklift. A secondary floor has been tacked over the first rotten one, resulting in two rotten floors. The front nearside chassis mount has broken away from the body, and the rear leaf springs are only attached at two of the four mounting points. The seller said he'd been using it as a daily to go to work - as a teacher. We at LMM hope that this did not involve road safety, as the car is quite simply a death trap. 
Lawrie very much accepts he mucked up, and shouldn't have purchased it. However, with the experts in the comments declaring it's only good for breaking, Lawrie has resolved to restore the thing, and the current plan is it will be the car he learns to weld on.
