Nice report. The practicality of a Morgan is that there is hardly a more practical way to create great joy on the spot.

Got to agree with this bit " one of the key attributes of any classic British sports car is using the sensations of rushing air, noise, heat, effort and a closeness to nature to embellish the emotional content of driving. It’s a characteristic that’s more relevant today than ever before, with our crowded roads and draconian electronic policing.".

Its also why sports cars, true sports cars, are open 2 seaters. Things like an M3 might well give far greater performance but its a hot family saloon and not a sports car.

Also a sports car. Or isn´t a Bentley 4 seater Le Mans winner a sports car?
