The lost footage from earlier post by +8Rich. Regrettably the thrill of the hairpin turns was not captured by my camera, as I was holding on for dear life at most key points of interest. This clip would seem more exciting if you knew that 15 minutes earlier our clutch went out and Bill Fink was starting the car from second gear just to get to Prescott. I think the spirit of Maurice Owen was very much present as the car miraculously cured itself and we achieved 3 hill runs and made it back the 30+ miles to the Morgan factory without incident.

That makes sense Graham, thanks for the explanation.

Jays it was SO great to meet you in person at last! Sorry if I almost knocked you over with my hug. It must be a California thing, because Mark Baldwin (who has known me for decades) seemed to physically brace himself for impact the moment he first saw me. It takes me a few days to adjust to the English “double air kiss” greeting every time I arrive in the UK.
