Wow guys, thanks so much for the warm welcome.

@grahamG4FUJ thanks for the link, I’ll give it a go when I get back from walking dog.

@ivormog you’re right, there are some great roads in these parts, especially out in the directions you mention. Spent about 25 years riding a variety of motorbikes in this area and some of the smaller roads will be very Morgan friendly in view of its narrow width and ability to be fun at sane speeds.

@madmax you’re absolutely right - I am keen to keep the car in good condition but equally it’ll definitely be getting wet. I think I’ll be picking up Jan/Feb from Oakmere so the first outing will be in cold, wet, and possibly snowy conditions...

@kevfitz it certainly feels very special to have had a very small hand in the build. Can’t guarantee my handiwork is straight, it took a couple of goes as I’d under estimated the amount of force needed. The guys doing it made it look like they were putting no force in - which I found out they clearly were!

I’ll try to put some pictures up later

Driving on snow can be entertaining in a Mog. The back end breaks away quite easily, so go easy on the right pedal.
I had my Roadster in for a service and the Beast from the East hit.

Driving back from Allon whites to Amersham was entertaining esoecially as we lived on an unadopted private road on a hill!


Enjoy the new car.

Nice car @johnV6!

Interesting comment about living on a hill on an unadopted road....that’s exactly out position too! Not a severe hill but enough that certain German automatics ive had in the past had to be left in the village as they wouldn’t get up the hill..

I can always ask Swmbo to push if I get stuck, don’t fancy leaving the Mog in the village on the day of collection. It’d probably be fine but you ever know!

Ok, have I think now worked my way through the imaging site, I’m sure I’ll get better at it but just now I’m struggling to get the pictures in a sensible order! But nevertheless here they are!

this photo is of it as per last week, having primer applied


This is me stood next to it as per its build stage when we went




These are me putting bonnet Louvre in, pictures actually the wrong sequence..
and now the professionals showing how it should be done

a couple more gratuitous pictures of the build as at 15 November
we were lucky enough to get to sign the woodwork, enabling me to dedicate the car to the memory of my late father who instilled in me a passion for all things petrol...as long as they had 2,3 or 4 wheels.....the subsequent pictures are people signing it, including the guy who was looking after assembly at this stage.

Glad you got to sign the framework - I did the same 8 years ago. Enjoy no matter the weather - I`m in Derby now (trying to convert the natives) but originally from Saddleworth area - great Mog roads in that area.
Enjoy.

So nice to make that dedication.

But of course you now know you can never part with it.

I carry the name "Shy Tot" on my car in memory of my grandfather who had it on his scramble bike and Austin 7 hill climber.



Keep saying it and you will " get " it..I was young at the time and never got it till much later !!!

Welcome to the forum

Great photos of you ‘customising’ your Mog

Also good to see a fellow Yorkshireman (born in Keighley, grew up in Skipton) wearing a waistcoat

Yes, quite...every vehicle I have bought in the past has been bought knowing it will be sold. The plan is the Mog stays...

I do still have my first proper motorbike (a 1961 98cc Excelsior) which I got in 1975 when I was 14 as a crate of parts, Dad saying “you’ve got 3 years to rebuild it if you want to be on the road when you’re 17”..with some help from him, this was achieved!
