That is a BIG history file there and a most interesting car.


Nice story behind this one:

Quote
She's coming home.

In 2014 i was forced to sell her along with many of my classic bike collection cos Nat west went tits up and took it out on a small business, well today is my big middle finger to not only Natwest but all those banks out there that treat our money like its there own. and our lives like they don't matter.

Ive just added a picture of her 10 years ago when fitted with our awsome 4.6 V8 with ACT Multi throttle Carbon intake, one of many engines we tested in this car, in the years that I previously owned it


RPI Engineering are apparently going to be putting a supercharged V8 in.

Not really - what has a picture of a SEAT got to do with Morgans?

I used the word bitza, not Ibiza?

I have reached the conclusion that this forum is in desperate need of active moderation as any attempt at sensible discourse is drowned out by meaningless drivel

Thanks for the supportive comments from those who are on my wavelength. But I shall maintain "radio silence" for a while and keep any thoughts of meaningless drivel in my head....

Interesting. I seem to recall that at one time RPI were against supercharging RV8s. I like Superchargers, "sod subtlety fit a b*****y great airpump."


Edit
This is what I recalled

Yes Alan Kennedy was one of the better Morgan racers in my days on the track (late 60s to mid 80s)

He was a member of the MSCC Vikings Team at the 1978 Donnington 6 Hour relay race , where we came second.

His car was blue with a Lotus twin cam engine as I remember. It would have been set up for the track , not grass tracks! so I am not surprised that it was a handful on the rough

This car was discussed in Facebook this days. Now back to her former owner.
