Good luck with the bonding, a few hundred miles perfect, job done.

All those fond memories locked away too.

The older +8 is a great car and much sort after in this part of the world but I am sure you will enjoy your new beast. drive

Good luck Ray. I am sure it will be good car.

Does that mean I stand a chance of keeping up with you through the Welsh hills?

I can understand your sadness. All the best with the bonding process for your "new" car.

Nice choice. The Duratec is a brilliant engine, very tuneable.

I sympathise - it's hard letting go. I had my black 4/4 from new for 20 years before selling
to start again.
It will be different to the +8 of course but I'm sure you'll enjoy the 4/4 experience!!

This downsizing thing is all the range but I never expected it to start among Morgan owners! Best wishes for the new fun times ahead.


Everyone loves a Morgan. Even me, unless it's broken again.
