AAMOI there was/is another BDA although this was based on the Cook/Askew car but with all new T45 space frame designed my me and built by Dave Kerby. The engine, built by me and Don Castle, gave just over 200 bhp at 12,000 on 130 Avgas on the John Wilcox dyno. Paintwork was a slight problem! We prepared a reversible transparent skin and took it to TT Race & Rally, who painted the Jordan F1 cars and the Silk Cut Jags. Difficult person to deal with was the proprietor!!! It wore the name 'Morgasm' on the front spoiler. Here it is at Beaulieu when the New Forest Centre organised the MOG.

Interesting... I remember some years back when on eMog, JHS II posted pics and tales relative to his acqusition of and sporting success with the Twink engined space framed glass fibre Morgan look alike shell...

While thinking of variations on the Morgan theme, I remember Bill Button posting pics again on eMog of a re bodied Morgan with very 50`s Ferrari race car like appearance.... Interesting indeed.

GREAT pics, that is the most un-Morgan Morgan I have ever seen... (-: I think I have a couple of low quality pics of pics of it somewhere too.. I think Bill Button may have taken some ..?

I have a couple of the John H Sheally II`s Modsports which may have been taken by JHS, though perhaps one of those was taken in the UK sitting outside a lock-up where it was kept and is in the colour shown on your avitar CAM..?

As best I can remember... there was story by John H Sheally II of his coast to coast trip of the US in his M3W printed in Miscellany some years back, and tales of repairs using a Harley piston or similar on the trip ? Think JHS made his living as a Photographer and remember seeing pics he took of his wonderful garage lay out and the old restored truck he used to trailer his Modsports car to events, apparently beating everything in sight and promoting the Morgan name in the US...?

Yes, JHS2 and I have kept in regular touch over the years...my wife says John is the politest man she ever met! That lock-up pic was taken outside Chas Smith's unit in Worcester when John first saw it. When John finished the trans-USA trip and had dipped the rear wheel in the Pacific he put a 45 slug through one of the barrels with a Colt he happened to have about his person!!!
