As an early registrant of the 3W, I feel a duty to speak to the <ahem> resolute conclusion of my foray into the wacky and wonderful world of Morgan, with great appreciation for you, my fellow Morganites.
With stoic strife, I must report that I have closed — for now — my door to Morgan. Although I had cancelled my order several months ago, my hope was to reinstate it and continue with you. It was a tough battle between my twin logical and emotional minds.
But, in the end, I was given the chance to get a fair weather 4W at half the price, and at an unheard-of discount... so... bespoke or not, I own a 3W-ish transmission attached to one new Miata GT PRHT (Power Retractable Hard Top).
This outlay moves me away from the car-as-appliance discussion and closer to the 3W realm... not quite there, but within my comfort zone.
How odd and sad to close a dream. Maybe one of you could leave your 3W to me in your Will. Americans are not above charity, and I am a whore for nice cars, besides.
I hope I can drop in, and strut about like a 3W aficionado that I am. What a grand world Morgan has created, and how fantastic to have met so many great friends here. I will lament that loss far more than any vehicle could have provided.
Although penalized by one extra (superfluous) wheel and an extra forward gear, life goes on.

Nothing will replace my longing for a Morgan 3W. Damn, damn, damn. But I thought my friends should know why I disappeared. Thanks to all... and congrats (with undying envy) on your new 3 Wheelers!!!
