Morris Minors on The Beach

make sandcastles that look like Morris Minors
  [vote for,

Sand castles are so passé, so bring out the Morris Minors.

They work in exactly the same way as sand castles ie you fill them with damp sand, press it down well, then deposit the resulting shape unto the beach. My small dream is to have a two way traffic stream of Morris Minors snaking down to the water's edge as the tide creeps in.

       Are these real Minors or just Minor shaped buckets?   

       Chillean ones?

       I suspect the outer skin of an actual Morris Minor would work quite well, windows replaced with steel sheet and all welded into one piece of course.

       I can recall my dad's Shooting Brake with its lovely wooden framed windows, and quarter lights.... Who now even knows what they were?

       Not many left now (see link). They were still reasonably common in the late 80's/early 90's and what I particularly liked was that if you were driving one around London then and saw another Morris Minor or Morris Traveller (the "shooting-brake" version), if you politely raised your hand to salute the other driver, they would inevitably smile and salute you back.

       Adult men who admit to dreaming about minors in beach attire (whether Morris or other surnames) should be closely watched by the authorities.
