Yay! Dry roads at last, had a blast.
It's really good, nice firm ride, tidal wave of power, lovely interior.....cooled seats are surprisingly comfortable.

No problem with build quality, not a squeak nor rattle, naff all room in the back seats though.

As others have said, an interesting garage. Apart from the new blue bombshell, looks like a Caterham and maybe a 360 under the red cover. The darker blue car at the back looks interesting, I'd guess a fast Ford of some type?

Do put us out of our misery Ewan and list the current stable, also the daily driver?

Ah..the others, well the blue one is a Subaru Impreza, bought that new 2002, it's still like new, very noisy and fast.
The caterham is a xflow 1992, restored it three years ago, 150hp-550kg, very noisy and fast.
The red one is a Ferrari F430, had that five or six years, like new but I've driven it the most, now at 45k miles, very noisy and fast.
The morgan, you should already be bored reading about, I love everything about it, it must be it's first birthday about now, 6k miles and not even a single chip or scratch, relativity quiet and sensibly quick.
Daily appliances are a Fiesta which is actually very good but slow ( kids leaner spec) and a VW touran, the only diesel. Bought both new with the intention of getting ten years out of them. Even the VW has a good turn of speed and handles exceptionally well, but in my opinion, it's the poorest quality.

The space looks relatively small for 5 very nice cars , not sure how they all fit in there !
I wonder if Howard wishes he still had his red one.

The three in the row still have room round about, the Morgan should really be at the door for a quick getaway but it's cosier further in. The garage is L shaped, the area in the foreground is much larger, I could squeeze another two in....like an Aero and maybe a vintage single seater track car, but that would just be silly.

As I posted earlier I drove a Stang convertible across the US this year on Route 66.

That was the Ecobost but it is a fine car with buckets of ummph.

The 5l must be awesome.

How is the rear headspace in the fastback?
