Don't be - just be grateful that Simon has had a little reorganisation hopefully to make HIS life a tad easier thumbs and with a price hike it sets it above the others innocent

It must be like herding cats attempting to please all..

It does say Morgan Three Wheeler and Super3 ? No doubt if you spend money on Super 3 you will be classed as different!
As the cx owners found out with trad owners !
I know in my local centre the Cx owners are still classed as traitors !
We should be thankful we have no pop up adverts like Car and Classic Site has now.
It is not rocket science looking down the list !

I agree its not a big issue in the grand scheme of things but when the M3W (or 5 speeder) was introduced there were a significant number of Morgan Three Wheeler Club (MTWC) members who deemed the M3W not a "Proper Morgan" never mind a Three Wheeler. Many of us in the club have worked long and hard to change this perception and now "classic" and M3Ws happily co-exist. A prime example of this is that a group of over 50 Morgan Three Wheelers of all ages (with their owners!) have just returned from a superb week on the Isle of Man.

The MTWC are welcoming the Super3 as the next in line of Morgan Three Wheelers without any discrimination and given the history above there are some of us who are perhaps a bit sensitive to it being classified as something different.

In regards to the money; the Super3 is in the same price bracket as the outgoing M3W once options and upgrades are factored in. Remember the P101 base price was £55k.

I think its a logic joke. Like "Houses and bungalows" or "Cakes and apple pie" this does not mean the Super 3 is not a 3 wheeler, but a SPECIAL 3 wheeler 😊

Yes, I went to Newquay when they held their annual Mog event down there as a lurker to see whether I wanted to join a club, after a morning of listening to and engaging in a few conversations I decided it was not for me, due partly to snobbery of this type.

I can't recall the year but I had my first Plus 8 at the time which I parked elsewhere wink at my Son's place.

In my 19 years of owning my 4/4, we’ve only been to two annual Mog events: the Centenary at Cheltenham and the one at Llangollen.
At the first, an ex MSCC Chairman referred to my 4/4 as “ one of those dreadful Runabouts”, at the second I wanted to be there to give my old mate, the late Quentin English some moral support, after the way the MSCC treated him.
We are members of the local Fossilmog, but only because of the excellence and friendship with Graham and Kim, the organisers.

Maybe I’m just grumpy?

I'm afraid I see most of the replies as just examples of the historical divisions in views of some the Morgan community. Had it been down to me I would have preferred the Super3 to be covered under the Three Wheeler heading or have it's own dedicated forum but I'm more than happy to go with the flow as it is.

Hopefully the dealers will be getting their cars in the not too distant future and we can finally get some driving impressions thumbs

That speaks volumes and sad really and in stark contrast to the TM meet ups we have enjoyed from time to time where everyone is comfortable and relaxed with nothing to prove.

Glad you enjoy Fossilmog .

Not grumpy, I call it selective smile

Yes me too, I think it's going to be a belter.
