Well this post really brought out the knives over number 1,000 smile
I'm glad so many care so much as to the creditability of the 1,000th unit since these are such super sweet machine smile

You have to give credit to MorganWest as they have customized many M3W which has grown the market awareness in the US. They have some cool add on parts that you see on their machines that they have in stock.

I can under stand the some are mad that the Yanks stole the 1,000th unit from right under there noses but give to Dennis and MorganWest with the coup of the 1,000th M3W for some luck west coast buyer. It will just drive more interest and then sales!

JVS, you're missing the point that this is not the 1000th unit despite what the ad says. If it was you're correct, it would be quite the get but sadly that's not the case.

Lancia used to make RHD cars specifically for that reason. It was considered much better on narrow mountain roads.

Morgan West was named the #1 Morgan dealer in the world. Why wouldn't Dennis get the chance to sell that car?

because when the head of sales at morgan tells you personally that he isn't getting the car it doesn't matter about the awards. dennis is getting a car specced similar to the 1000th car but not the actual 1000th car, and so is another dealer in europe.

Have you considered that the car is not for sale? Perhaps Morgan would like to keep it for their museum collection?

Kudos to Dennis for thinking ahead of the factory to develop a limited 1k edition. Don't come down on Morgan West for finding new ways to sell the 3W.

You give the dealer "kudos" for advertising a vehicle as the 1000th M3W one-off when it is not? Strange IMHO.

Each to their own but I do not view that as praise worthy.
