A vessel from which to make memories. DPF, well said. I’ll take that deal any day. Can’t wait for my “vessel” to arrive too!

On a separate question, what’s the camera / kit you are using to take these wonderful pictures? I think you said it was a Leica? But what model and lenses are you using? Maybe inspired me to go beyond the obligatory iPhone pics!

I use a Leica M10-D, which is very much the Morgan of cameras. An extra charge to have the digital display removed so you cannot view the images you take till you “develop” them when you get home. There are any number of cameras what will do the job better and faster and more simply, but noting that does it with quite as much fun and feel. These pictures from the Lakes were taken with a 35mm Summicron ASPH. The ones at the beginning of the thread are with a 50mm Summilux 1.4.

''It's not a cocoon, isolating you from the outside world, nor even a permeable membrane, it is a fully porous experience. What is outside will be inside.''

Welcome to the world of Morganeering, as with most soft top cars its all a question of degree of eventual exposure to the elements. Nothing quite compares with fresh air open top motoring in grand surroundings with the occasional inclement weather to keep you honest. Enjoyable write up thank you for taking the time and sharing your positive experiences!

Well I've just had a call from the factory - my estimated delivery date has gone from the 29th September into early to mid November. Such is life...

I'm going up to Gt Malvern this week anyway, so I'll do a tour of the factory anyway.

Anybody got a car in build that they want some photos of? camera

It'll soon come round Jim, and will be well worth the wait. I took delivery of my S/H plus 4 in December and got reasonable use of it in the N/E of Scotland to take advantage of the warranty. Enjoy the factory tour, it was one of our first long range trips in the Mog and most enjoyable.

Enjoy the tour Jim.
(Is 109b a reference to Series land Rovers by any chance? smile )

The 109b refers to a plane I owned quite a few years ago - a Grob 109b guru (this was the only emo that had sort of flying in it...)
