Thanks Graham for pointing out how to post pictures.

Previous post in the Speedster - I fell for the '8' on the mesh grille of the latest 50th anniversary model so Krazy Horse added that although you can't see it due to reflections in the picture. They also did a few other bits n pieces for me before taking delivery.

PS: tyre pressures reduced to 25 psi and much better traction. Went out on cold and greasy Norfolk roads on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised by the road contact feel and general grip. Comfort not so different but then maybe I have no sensitivity left after a couple of years in the ARP4!

You are a very lucky boy, that colour suits it down to the ground.

Hello Ian,
Enjoy the +8 I hope you have many great drives, I love the colour.
I still love the Almond +4SS after a long trip in the summer it has loosened up nicely.
All the best

Sorry for tardy reply al, but work/life has been a bit hectic of late. And to make things even worse, major works going on at home mean the Morgan has been confined to the garage for the past month, inclduing the great weather last week (big trench across the front of the +8's garage for new services/gates to be installed which have been held up). It will make finally getting out in the car all the sweeter .. (really?).

Thanks for the message Steve and good to know Monsieur Almond is going well and properly loosened up. Its well established (in my mind anyway) that Almond Green is the second best colour for a Morgan so enjoy. Same to Kev!

Just invested in an open face helemt (Schuberth, a la John Winn). Got a dent in my forehead from a small stone last time out - I fear that even screwing my eyes up tight behind sunglasses may not provide full protection at +8 speeds..

All the best to all you boys and girls - enjoy and be carefull out there.
