Does he know how to hold a mallet that looks a bit odd?
I guess he may have had a hand in all 3 of my cars.
A very interesting article.

Great story...

Typically 'Morgan'.

I truly hope non of this raw skill and DNA is 'lost' as the push towards more production numbers with less 'timber', as in the Plus 6 happens...

Makes me even happier to think that I am very proud to have an 'original' 4/4 ... even if it's a 2016 build.

He may well have been my Grandads replacement, he retired from the Wood shop in 1975.
