Having lurked on the site for a few weeks I thought it was time for introductions!
I’m currently sat waiting for my new Plus 4 to be built, to say I’m excited is an understatement !
I’ve looked at/considered Morgan’s on and off for many years, having first seen one at Earle’s Court motor show in 1968 when my dad took me as a wide eyed 7 year old. I can remember well seeing a dark green 4 seater on the Morgan stand and pleading with Dad to buy one.....which of course he didn’t..
After a long and varied car history though, I decided that it was high time I scratched the Morgan itch and the more investigating and research (on line) that I did the more I knew that I no longer wanted a Morgan, I NEEDED one.
Got chatting to the guys from Oakmere at the Goodwood Revival in September and visited their showrooms for a test drive on 8 October, and out my order in.
I’ve gone for the 110 Edition Plus 4 in Sports Green, Magnolia upholstery, stainless wires and walnut dash/ Moto Lita wheel. (Won’t bore you with the full spec but you get the drift!)
Oakmere arranged a factory visit which Swmbo and I did a week or so ago and was luck enough to meet my car during its build. The tour guide (David Shaw) went out of his way and above and beyond the call of duty in making sure we found the car and spent some time drooling over it.
The guys were just about to punch the louvres in the left hand bonnet as we passed, and I even got to operate the fly press and punched lower louvre no. 7 myself. Amazing!
So I’ve got shed loads of noobie questions coming up over the next few weeks/months/years but I’ll try to contain myself as a lot of these will be answered once I’ve taken delivery and looked closely/used it.
So that’s it for a long introduction, I know I’ll learn a lot from this forum and look forward to meeting fellow Morganists at some events next year.
Meantime I’ll see if I can work out how to post a couple of in - build photos - I thought I’d worked it out but obviously not!
