A wet day out

My friend the celebrated motor racing photographer Jefff Bloxham asks: "Between two races, Spa and Nurburgring, I stayed in Geneva with a good friend Jad Sherif and on the way there over one of the high Swiss passes in the snow we overtook this topless Morgan ( I think 1983/4), anybody out there know who these intrepid pair are?"

Well, someone here may know...

According to the DVLA website it was put on a SORN in 2010. It has an MSCC badge, it might be worth sending the picture to the club for the magazine's "Where Are They Now?" feature?

Also the Cranmog centre badge , it might be worth contacting them as they have some very long standing members who might remember this one.

I have now contacted the MSCC and Cranmog and I shall report back if anything turns up. I notice that Cranmog holds monthly meetings (or did until recently!) in The Chequers in Ampthill. I often had lunch there when testing cars at Millbrook in the 1980s.

Are you sure that is actually the correct photograph.

Doesn't look like a high Swiss pass in the snow to me.

But still a great picture and worth researching.

That is the caption that Jeff wrote to that photo on Facebook. I think it's slushy snow.

Great picture. Can't wait to get the MOG back on the road after rebuilding it and this virus thing!
