Matt Tomkins has owned, restored, modified and driven thousands of miles in Morris Minors since 2010. His first car, a 1970 Morris Minor saloon evolved through various incarnations; engine, gearbox and final drive changes, as well as brake and suspension upgrades to make it into the perfect daily driver. He has also restored a 1969 Traveller and 1960 Convertible, fitting each of these with a number of upgrades to make them more capable on the roads of today.
