Does this mean I have to go around looking for the hundreds of people that I have told that Morgan never made a wooden chassis,that there is a change of plan?

Conjure up a vision of a trad on its cart springs hitting a pothole and not bending but shattering instead.

That’s a bit different

Don’t know whether I like it though, doesn’t look like a low sports car. Looks a bit high in the body

Price is good though
