Reflecting on 2022 and my first few months with the Morgan.
The Plus Four has a way of getting under your skin. It seems so intentionally flawed when compared to any other modern car. There are faster cars (though not all that many truth be told), more comfortable cars (though for its size it is very comfortable), there are quieter cars (nearly all), and better weather sealed cars (absolutely all, with the possible exception of an Ariel Atom), but I am convinced there is no more interesting car, and certainly no car I’d rather be driving.
While I’ve really enjoyed driving the plus four, I’ve had few opportunities to really take it on adventures or real journeys since getting it in August. Pottering around is a great deal of fun, but something about the Morgan is just asking to head out on a journey. I’d love to do a big tour it in 2023.
Todays picture was taken a couple hours ago crossing one of the moors near here in the Dales. Fingers crossed there’s a break in the clouds and I can get the hood down tomorrow to kick if 2022!
Happy new year and happy motoring to all of you in 2023!
