Hello everyone!! I have looked at this little fun machine off and on for a couple of years. I finally told my wife I was going to buy one. So I start the order process and had the car built just the way I wanted it. I had the last slot available and all I had to do was say go but then I found out that the price could fluctuate due to the dollar vs pound and I couldn't lock that price down. So I didn't buy. Well I searched the internet and found a new 2018 sitting in a West Virginia showroom. Called the dealer, made a deal and bought it sight unseen. I now sit it Arkansas awaiting the transport truck to go get the Morgan and deliver it to me. My friends think I am crazy since I have never seen one in person or test driven one. I countered by saying I love anything with a gas burning engine. I ride motorcycles and I feel like this will fit right in the stable. The v-twin is a simple engine and the sound will be perfect for this car. Well I am off to read more about this fantastic card and look forward to being a part of this board. Thanks for allowing me to come aboard!!

Congratulations! You will love your Morgan. The vtwin on the front is just awesome. Just be prepared to be stopped regularly as people love seeing Morgans and have lots of questions. Hopefully s&s will keep us in xwedge parts if they do discontinue the engine.

Welcome to the M3W world!
I don’t think you will be disappointed - every time I drive mine I have a huge grin on my face, and it seems to have the same effect on everyone else.
Looking forward to seeing some photos. joy

Congratulations indeed and welcome! If you love motorcycles and cars you will love it for sure, it has elements of both about it. The driving experience is just so elemental and raw, it’s addicting for sure.

Congratulations! Similar motorcycle experience and 'site and driven unseen' purchase story here too, plus one of the top motoring decisions I've made. I challenge anyone to present a vehicle that delivers not only as many smiles per mile for the driver, but the passenger and pedestrians as well. My bet is, you'll be happy.

Congratulations! It's unique in many ways but most importantly it's fun to drive and enjoy the elements.
Arkansas has many wonderful driver's roads and I am sure you'll be having a good old time carving them.
Purchasing sight unseen is not unusual - I did the same - enjoy smile

When the pandemic eases, an informal gathering and drive around CO or Arkansas would be in order.

Congratulations!

The first time I drove a three wheeler was when I picked mine up at the dealer! It did not disappoint. Now with over 52,000 miles, multiple changes and tires and a rebuild, I'm still not disappointed.

Enjoy the ride!


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.

Congrats and welcome to the madness! Similar story here - first M3W I saw was the one I purchased. As for your skeptical friends..... I bet they will line up in droves for a ride and have a hard time wiping the grin off their face afterwards smile
