Evening people,
Quick introduction, Jono here, new to me , proud owner of my first ever Morgan, 2015 , Porsche Silver Plus 4 with lots of extras. Had it three weeks and had driven it every day to our yard and office, apart from last Thursday to today due to the white stuff. It was delivered from dealer in the South and after first day I unfortunately had a few very minor issues which where swiftly dealt with under warranty at the Malvern factory just down the hill last Wednesday. The driver side bonnet catch kept popping open as I turned into my home which is up a steep track. On inspection the bonnet catch that attaches to the wing was not in the middle so the factory re aligned it. Also horn on Mota-Lita Steering Wheel not working but was soon fixed. So I pulled out the factory end of play Wednesday, snow sitting on black Mohair hood and nestling on my elegant wings. I was in a hurry to get back to office to finish up. I gave her the wellie up through Malvern, through the Wyche cutting, with its satisfying popping and banging on a quick drop down to 2nd gear. Then onto Jubilee drive, were the snow was bouncing of my lights into the windscreen making the wiper work hard along with my eyes. I was loving it. Roof was up , heater to hot, heated seats boiling, face muscles aching. A swift right at the Malvern Hills hotel and a race down to Ledbury. In through the gates and into the warm and dry of her second home. As I gracefully exited the car my 50 year old self felt like a child. My men were even smiling at me (which is a rarity). I slumped behind my desk as the staff left, and I looked at the vehicle I had wrangled about buying for some years and I knew I had made the right choice for once. Look forward to being involved in the forum.
