Welcome DalesPF.

Things are a bit tetchy on the forum now as you will have seen. I hope things go smoothly for you from this point.

Come on peeps this is a hello thread our bitching should be on the pissed-of-surbiton thread, at least one of the six of them open.


Just time to rent a thimble more petrol before dinner.

Welcome DalesPlusFour. Morgans are made to be photographed as well as driven so you've a really appropriate hobby there! Hope you enjoy many years of Morgan ownership - you've certainly got a nice colour combination to enjoy!

Apologies to MattB, only on reading through this thread did I pick up on the incorporation of your introduction to that of Dales Plus Four... thus may I extend my belated welcome to the forum. I do hope that you enjoy whatever time you care to spend here and I am looking forward to reading of your Morgan experiences and viewing any images you care to share..

Thank you. I thought it best to tag my intro into this thread. I dare say I’ll be posting some photos (especially when I eventually get the chance to take it on some proper road trips). Just another month or so until it’s built - and I’m resisting the urge to change spec at the last minute!

Hi MattB - as one of the other newbies, a welcome from me too. Not sure I responded but super interested in seeing Porsche Frozen Blue on a Morgan in the flesh! Looks like it will be very striking with the black pack and trim. When's your delivery date? Mine is late September.

Thanks. I sometimes wonder if I’m being overly brave with the colour (especially with these delays), but I’m hopeful it will be the right combination of contemporary, bold and distinctive, whilst also having a tenuous link to famous Morgan’s of old (eg Iris Blue and the Choc Ices Supersports) without being too OTT. We’ll see in mid September, assuming the new build date of early September holds true. In fact it should be heading into production soon but will then be sent for ceramic and extended PPF before collection.

Are you hoping to see yours in build?
Matt

Yes if I can. Tentative date to go up in 2nd week of Sept as away in US the following week. Will depend on whether build is running to schedule. We’ll see. Then heading to Williams for PPF and a steering wheel change. Can’t wait to get the car for real although guess the weather will have changed for the worse by then.

A stealth Morgan! To paraphrase Douglas Adams … black buttons on a black background with black writing that when you press them light up black. Sounds perfect! smile

Sounds like a great plan. I did the factory tour in May which I knew was far too early even for the initial build slot, but great to see how things have changed since I first went several years ago. Would love to see it just after the paint stage, before it gets too complete in trim, but alas that won’t happen now. In theory it might go into build the early the work week after next, if not sooner, so depending if and when you do go you might see mine before it leaves for Northampton.

My original plan was to take it to the Alps in September but will now take the A110 again (certainly no hardship!), which means I’m not around when it is due for completion. Hopefully there will still be a good few weekends for roof down Morgan motoring this year for us all.
