Ah, not actually collecting the car, the dealer is delivering it on a trailer. The journey between home and the dealers is deeply unpleasant and a route I avoid whenever possible in any vehicle!

So as they offered to deliver FOC on a trailer I thought I’d take that option and have my first journeys on moorland roads instead of the M62 ....

Enjoy your first run out, moorlands are perfect for Morgan runs.

Yes good call

M6 and M62 wouldn’t be the most memorable and pleasant for a first Morgan experience

There are some nicer routes from Oakmere over to West Yorks through the Cheshire countryside, across the top of The Peak District, up via Holmfirth or The Colne Valley then but only if you’ve got a very good map, co-pilot or a long time.

This has the makings of an epic thread, I don’t know how I missed it earlier.

Not that my enthusiasm needs rekindled, but seeing those pictures at the factory brings back that excited feeling, in my case, most likely a once in a lifetime experience.

It’s a cracking spec you’ve chosen, I particularly like the leather with the coloured piping and stitching, and the black mats are a sensible choice.

The mirrors you have look fine but if you want to change them, there are better round mirrors than the aero ones, I had to make some drastic alterations to get mine to point in the right direction.

You’re probably right about not driving on the M6, it was a miserable part of our journey home, but having recently visited Ilkley, that’s an area I’d like to revisit with more time to drive around, lots of scenic exploration to do.

Don't forget to have someone still pointing the right way up on hand to remember to take lots of photos of that moment etc. Camera charged, go-pro thingy ready for your first trip out.

Luckily (hmm maybe not) on Monday we have fortnightly “bottoming” of the house to do, so I’ll be very much distracted.

Have usefully spent some time booking Silverstone Classic as per my other post and started to look at places to go in it too.

Oh yes indeed.. there’ll be plenty taken, then I’ll be deciding which pictures from the ones I’ve taken I’m going to put into a Vistaprint style photo book.
