Hi Neil ! really good to hear you are ok and you must come for a beer/coffee with the Wild Team when you can.. SBM's in the chair.

As Ray says anyone worth their salt selling a Morgan should let you dig around a bit to check in the vulnerable areas (the cars not yours!) if not walk away.

If we can help just shout, I'll send Wirewheel smile

Welcome back Neil. I’m sure the right car will choose you before too long and hopefully you will bring your new steed to Prescott next season.

Welcome back Neil. cheers
Good result on your health.

Re older car. There are enough cars out there for you to be selective provided you have some flexibility on colours etc..
As others have advised, have a good look over the car and don’t hold back on checks. If at a dealer then ask for it to be put up on a ramp. As well as the bulkhead check the inner wings and chassis too.

Welcome back. If there is an upside I trust that it has let you enjoy every new moment of life and you will really get the most out of the Morgan.

Hope you find a good one.


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

Neil,
I admire your openness and courage by sharing your story. Your story on recovery may increase awareness amongst “us” guys on this forum. With upcoming Movember, a good reminder to not ignore symptoms and seek treatment.
I am sure a Morgan that suits you, is out there.

Welcome back Neil, even if I wasn’t around when you used to post. Without wishing to be too facetious, why did you have to have a robot removed from your nether regions? Was something being done incorrectly? Seriously though, big congratulations on the positive steps forward.
I hope my banal attempt at levity causes no offence and apologies and full, erm, retraction if so.
Anyway hope you find a lovely 4 wheeled steed to take you on your next Morgan journey.....
Ps Wirewheel, I, for one, am sad that you no longer post, I have heard good things re your tour guide stuff/experience and hope Neils return is enough to get you posting regularly again (a bit like Jays who I’ve seen when reading back through TM)
Kindest regards and continued good health to you Neil
Best wishes
HB

Thank you all so much for your very welcome back messages - I feel overwhelmed, very very kind. I hesitate to preach about Prostate Cancer - although I have now become an Ambassador for my type of surgery in this area where I live.
No problem with humour at all - any kind, its one of the best ways to lower barriers and male inhibitions.
Suffice to say that for those of us over 60 an annual PSA Test is the only way forward. Please do not let your GP deflect you from this screening method.

I had no symptoms - but my very high PSA was fortunately picked up during a "well man" screening!!!!!

Anyway onto important topics...big thanks for the advice. Although I have owned quite modern MOGs I am completely new to the world of older versions.

I am learning fast!

Keep your thoughts coming.

Cheers laugh2


Neil
