Last weekend, Britain’s national motor museum at Bealieu held its first Simply Pink rally to support breast cancer awareness. The event encompassed a colorful display of vehicles in every shade of pink, ranging from pale pink to bright fuchsia. Many drivers and passengers even dressed up in pink.
Some of the most eye-catching cars included a 1934 Austin 7 Box Saloon in pale pink, a VW Beetle, Mercedes SLK320, a pair of Minis—one wrapped in glitter pink the other a two-tone white and rose— a Morgan +4, a striking Citroen S3 in black with a pink roof, several Smart cars, and a Porsche Boxter and Toyota Supra, both in fuchsia.
A pale lilac Morris Minor Million was displayed by Tim Lang Classics. The car is number 185 of a 350-unit special edition in 1961 to mark the millionth Minor to roll off the production line.
