As you say Alistair, sometimes they can get the details quite wrong perhaps the office junior writes up the ads.

Recently, I went with a friend who is looking for a Max to a Midlands purveyor of very high end motors. Not only was it not very well presented, for the asking price. They also didn't have any of the paperwork, V5 etc for it and it even had the wider rear wheels fitted to the front and visa versa. We decided it wasn't even worth an insultingly low offer.

There is a Silver Max just down the road from me that has been parked outside on the front lawn, occasionally covered, for at least 5 years. Scary thinking how the ash is getting on.

LOL. If I'd go for a blue, I'd choose the Blue Tour de France.

Greens are really going well with Aeromax. Look at this french Aeromax. In this green was looking fantastic.

I didn't think you would be far away Ale, thank you a truly fabulous pair and in my view the zenith of Morgan creative ability thus far you are a lucky boy indeed.

Is that Blue the same colour as the new A110 ?

I must admit that when the Aeromax came out I through it blew everything else away, think 1930s sloping lines - superb! Then came the normal Aero and I think the design went haywire. But the last Aero was back on track with the Aero Super Sport looking smart. Even some of my non Morgan mates said it look great. I was very disappointed when the V8 was dropped by BMW when meant the end of the line for the Aero. I believe that at the time even the hipsters of London through the Morgan as a alternative to the Porsche and Ferrari. That picture at the top of the post is lush, is the a Morris Minor MOG lurking in the garage?

A few of us think it is a Morris Minor in the garage so if that's his house he has a lovely mix of Mog's.

No other car has made me go wow look at that shape since the introduction of the Aeromax and in this green it's just a stunner, in much the same way as Ale72's Super Sport is in that purple.

The blue tour de france I had in mind is this one:

Here on a LaFerrari (Blue TdF in reality has been done in two variants: PPG 522 and Glasurit FER 522/C)
http://supercars.agent4stars.com/power-cars/us-specs-laferrari-tour-de-france-blue-red-leather/

As you can see the tone of blue really changes a lot based on the angle.

Thanks, that is a spectacular colour and as you say the hue changes with the angle in much the same way it appears to do on your car to me, in reality it may not be the same like pictures of "beautiful" ladies wink

Mine from that perspective still impresses me. Sometimes is blue some other times is super purple. And I haven't found a "rule" yet.
I would have been really curious to see "in metal" Brian's rocket red AeroSS (I just noticed now that it had additional louvres on the side)
