Congratulations on the 4-seater - I had one myself back in the 1980's. Enjoy your visit - I think you will find that much has changed since you were last there!

If you haven't done so already you might like to watch a programme Thames TV made about the Factory back in 1975.

What a fabulous video - Grandad retired on the 10th Sept 1975, so would have been there at the time of the filming. Can't see him, but nice to know he'd have been lurking in the background somewhere.

I was at Allon White today and saw your car. That really does look splendid.

Just one detail - it has a 2009 Anniversary badge fitted. If you leave that on the car, it will disintegrate - well the surface will become very pitted. Not the best quality piece of merchandise sold by MMC.

Also, worth joining the MSCC and then joining their Morgan Historic Register - lots of help and advice from people with cars of a similar age to yours.

Thanks Paul - only a few days left to wait! Will probably remove the badge bar - not a great fan of them. They'll go up on my garage wall with the rest of my 'trophies' smile

Have joined both the MSCC and MHR smile

Phil, for the moment I can't find the thread where we talked about Dixon Smith. Saw him at lunchtime today and he revealed your Mum? was right - his coupe was a beige colour before it was rebuilt and repainted Royal Ivory.

Cheers,
