Welcome Rovert. Myself and Lady HB have often stayed in Jersey- lovely place and fun to drive around. Caught by accident the air show once and remember some fairly old Russian plane basically flying so slowly against the wind that it was almost static in the sky. Is it true that I hear the Mansell museum has gone? I enjoyed hearing Nige’s cheerful tone on the headset last time we were there.

Welcome. That sounds like a nice roster of cars. Orange and Chrome Purple, cripes.

OK will do my best.

Lets see if I have RTFMd the photo instructions...



OK that seems to have done it, this is taken at a local timber merchants, I was collecting some pallisading, I can get more in the Mog than the Land Rover!

(Apologies if people were expecting Orange and Chrome Purple that was my provisional spec for a cancelled TVR order smile )

Yes, at the moment I'm afraid it is. If you buy a car from his son's car dealership, I understand that they will offer you a private tour of it at wherever it is being stored.

The plane may well have been an an Antonov

It would be very pleasant to give you a tour of the Island Peter although, as you say, the roads can be a little err character building.

That is one of the reasons my other car is a Land Rover Defender so I can see what is coming around the corner.

Lets hope that the new Wide-Body Morgan is wider on interior space rather than overall width otherwise any potential owner here may be a bit limited on the roads here.

The Aero +8 is about 6" wider inside than the roadster we had before. It also has a poor lock, thanks to the 225 width front tyres. But the ride is so much better, and the power, oh the power.

The local Morgan group who took us out seemed have a bit of a relaxed view of the local speed limits once out of any built up areas. But it was fun.....!!

Hi Rovert
By Jove, you are absolutely correct. Just did a bitta looking around on the interweb following your suggestion and i think it was the AN - 2 - thanks for the tip.
By the way your car looks stunning in that light
