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!

Welcome to Talk Morgan !!!

I too was able to put a louvre in my bonnet on my black 4/4 in Nov 2014..great experience and I got it straight !!!!


Enjoy your new car...Oscar Wilde said "anticipation is better than arrival"..but not in the case of waiting for your new Morgan...the build up days seem to last forever then suddenly collection day arrives and it is a marvellous occasion !!!!

Welcome to TM FW! grin2

To post photos you will need to save them to a hosting site and then post a link to them.
If you don't have an account with a photo hosting web site that allows linking then I recommend signing up with www.tm-img.com (set up and maintained by a couple of forum members) where you can store photos.
Instructions for linking are on that web site.

Have great fun with your car when it arrives. We look forward to photos smile

Don't be frightened of getting your Mog wet , there aren't usually many dry days in this country and its the only car with 3 wipers despite the odd internal drip on ones knee !

Welcome on board.

Some very nice roads up there. I used to live in Bolton and spent many happy hours on my bikes around Skipton.
