Oh dear!

Bit of a stupid basic error being in charge of a high vehicle

Rule no. 1 - avoid bridges lower than you

Actually years ago my company was delivering to Lincoln Court which meant getting a 7.5 tonne lorry under a stone arched gateway into a courtyard

It was too close to call so we edged carefully along with spotters looking to see if there was a chance we might hit

We were relieved to see we were clear by about 6 inches

Only problem was, that was with the van fully loaded with furniture, when we had delivered all the furniture and emptied the van, we couldn’t get out

We had to flatten all the tyres and creep back through

Yes they did a Evoque Convertible so maybe this was an accelerated development program for other models.


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

Here in Boston, Massachusetts, there are low bridges in the fast road along the river and every year despite the warning signs new students arriving to start at college drive trucks and vans into them.
