Now you gents must let me know if I'm over doing it here with the photos, as until I hear otherwise I'm liable to simply keep posting...
Another beautiful drive this evening, and another great opportunity to find more of the angles and contours that work when photographing the Plus Four. The more I drive the Plus Four the more I love it. It’s so cathartic having the wind in your hair and the sights and sounds and scents of the Dales so immediately present.
Curiously I’ve never had a car I’ve wanted to drive slower. My average speed today was around 23mph, yesterday it was 18, and that wasn’t because there were other cars on the roads. It’s just lovely to potter along and take it all in.
I do find the drives out slower than the return, which tends to be when I let the exhaust bubble pop. In any event, I’m throughly enjoy getting to know my Morgan, and may even be honing in on a name for him... But these things, as with driving a Morgan in general I am finding, shouldn't be rushed.
Quite liked this one: Leather, Wood, Wool, and a little Aluminium. Was good to remember what makes a Morgan.
From an aesthetic perspective, I am loving all the white lights and the white side indicators. Combined with all the other silver highlights, I feel it really comes together brilliantly.
Saw this beautiful old Bentley (61 I think?) pulled up on the verge on the way home so pulled over to talk with the owner. Had a lovely chat and poke around each others cars. He takes his to the south of France and Spain annually and has been driving it nearly weekly and often daily since purchasing it 25 years ago.
That's all for this evening. Do, seriously, let me know if it's becoming over kill. Just quite enjoying the glow of new love and the joys of driving and photographing such a beautiful car in such a beautiful place.
