The souped up version looks the business Clipper, the only thing I'd like is a little bit more noise, but maybe I'll just leave as is, there's enough noise with the others.

Have to laugh at the comical fake rear diffuser on ours. On the ferrari, it really works, when driven quick on a wet road it practically hoovers the water off the road. On the mustang, the hidden leading edge of diffuser/bumper is open to the airflow and probably slows the car down!
Merc and BMW do exactly the same though, fins and spoilers sell cars.

How is the rear headspace in the fastback?


Rear head space is excellent, the back seats fold so you simply remove your head and feet and put them in the enormous boot.
Seriously though, not great, but it replaced a Peugeot RCZ and it's better than that.
We've had 911's and an Evora and it's better than them too.
Must have been magic fun driving that is the US, the convertible would sort out the headroom too.

The convertible was great but noisy in the back.

We did over 3000 miles & it was a joy to drive.

Good choice. Good colour.


As expected, I had to crack open the wallet, it did 20mpg and cost 60 quid to fill, tank must be small, I'll have to be careful on the west coast.

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.




No ! Its not silly its a very sensible balanced decision !

I didn't set out to be a collector, the term conjures an image of a Hollywood type or an eccentric weirdo, I've certainly gone beyond what can be justified rationally.

As a Morgan owner, there has to be a certain amount of eccentricity! grin2
