James. The armoured clutch pipe over time wore away a live cable and shorted out, as we thought but you have to drop the floor to get at it. From fifty feet away she now looks as good as yours......

Why not an agreement with Mazda for Skyactiv naturally-aspirated engines? 1.5 litre with 131 hp for the 4/4 and 2.0 litre with 184 hp for the Plus 4. They already use Mazda gearboxes.

I do hope that the factory manages to keep up a reasonable level of production until the launch of the new cars next year. The tours are a very large part of the company now and I’m very proud to have paid a part in that during my time there.
The key to good tours and good reviews....which attract even more punters...is seeing the cars being built in busy workshops. Allied of course to enthusiastic and knowledgable tour guides 🤓.

I may have left the world of Morgan.....but I doubt I will lose the enthusiasm for the marque or the factory guys. But a plea to those who run Morgan at the top....please, please, please give Jon Wells the chance at long last to design a replacement to the Aero and not just just another tweak to an old design! He deserves it!

great news Em. thumbs

Is it possible to check the state of wear (on mine !) in-situ or is it only visible from below with the floor panel off...?

I thought the EvaGT went in a new fresh direction. Not quite finished but some good new surfaces etc.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Thenplus8 shape should be retained -as for an engine, how about the 6 cyl BMW one that is in the 440i?? Makes the BM go like stink and would make the Aero plus8 fly too

I thought Jon Wells designed the Aero-based +8?

He did....but it’s hardly a new design.
