I totally understand your choice. I loved the new Morgan but also felt it had lost something. I think you have bought one of the Last new Classic cars. I wonder what will happen to residuals over time? My guess is the trads may not do as well as the CX cars in the short term but suspect longer term that could well flip over and the trads be the more sought after.

I think you might be right there, but I think for me, it'll be of interest for insurance purposes only for many years yet! I've just realised a long held dream and I have no intention of letting it go!

Welcome to TM Andy.
My first trip in a Morgan was in a new 2010 Roadster hired for 24 hours from the factory (and was then driven by Charles Morgan to a show in Earls Court-they had lent us the wrong car we were told!). When driven, I kept on stalling pulling away in 1st and started to question my left foot out loud as well as my driving capabilities. It was only since coming on TM that I realise this can happen with that car.
Thus TM can be medicinal as well as useful for tech support.... 👍
