Mrs. Jim and I traveled to the Isle of Man a year ago this Spring.
My maternal grandfather's line is from Isle of Man.
We are the Corkill family. The first day there I met a lady whose maiden name was Corkill.
Corkill is a fairly common and known name in Isle of Man.

We enjoyed our visit there immensely, we almost covered the whole country (island). Unlike Ireland and Scotland, we did not rent a car here. Rather we used the very adequate public transportation system.
..
I do not know what year this car is, but my guess is the late 50's or early 60's.

Cool car. I came for Ruby Tuesday, but since there's a little bit of red in this, it counts.

I had a friend who had a Mini Minor once. I think that's what it was called anyway... a little bigger than the Mini Cooper (which, face it, doesn't require much).

Neat cars, but like pretty much everything British Leyland built at the time... be prepared to do a lot of pushing. My '74 Austin Marina got push started about as often as not.

Cool shot!

That is one neat car. On rust spots on it...

I do not miss "The Homestead" I never looked back when we moved. We live in a 2 bedroom apt. now. Love it and so much easier to keep after.

Thanks for your speeding over for a visit.

I think I had a senior moment. I came back to complete my answer and it ended up on the Autumn post about your cute little doggy. Maybe, you can figure it all out on your own...;)

Happy WW!

Happy WW! That is one kewl car!

I invite your blog readers to see Anti-Sarah Palin rally up in Alaska on my WW-post this week. Not much coverage of this event in the MSM...

peace, Villager

It's a cute car, but the pea-green color is a little off-putting. I'd like to see it painted red!

Nice shot. That's a gem. I don't think I've ever seen one before.

Awesome color! Not sure the original manufacturer offered that shade, but if not, they should have. Happy WW!
