I've never heard Dave mention it either John and he is justifiably proud of his OCD.

Update!

Firstly, hope one and all have had a great Christmas! :>)

I am still looking... but getting closer to finding the right car.

Several options...

I am wondering, how 'mileage sensitive' are the cars... is a car that is 2-3 years old with 22k miles a bad way to go... or is perhaps 22k miles on an 6 year old car ok?

I have also looked at 6 year old cars with 6k - 8k miles on them... how much more 'value' does that add?

Finally, is going for a new one with the '110 Anniversary' goodies, about £8k worth, going to hold onto it's value more?

Cheers,

Pete.

22k after 3 years sounds ok. Too few miles could be problematic as things can seize etc. if not used. I’ve never worried about resale value.

Completely agree.

I’d be happy with any from brand new to old basket, each has a value and different benefits. The unique feature of a Morgan though, is that you can have a new one.

Don’t worry, you won’t lose any value with anything you buy, you arrived in the world with nothing and you’ll leave with nothing. laugh2

22 k is not a lot. Cars not driven can be a source of many issues as things dry up & or seize.

Good luck with your choice.

Ha! I am not worried about that... as my ex-wife has most of it now!

A great line from seasick Steve, slightly puts me in mind of one of the many excellent anecdotes Billy Connolly came out with in Part 1 of the documentary about him the other night.

"When I was nominated for a knighthood, the woman interviewing me said, very nicely, ‘It’ll be strange for you, having a knighthood, coming from nothing.’ And I said, I don’t come from nothing. I come from something.”

For those who didn't see it (I think it was called Made in Scotland) on BBC2, I highly recommend you watch it on the iPlayer.
