With last weekend's glorious weather we had a great trip back to blighty in the Morgan to attend a family wedding. The borders agency man who inspected our passports at the tunnel said "I don't usually like Morgans, but that looks fantastic in black - very mean". I wasn't sure if I should get out and lamp him for being rude about Morgans in general, but thought that as he'd been appreciative of mine I'd better just leave it at that.
We had an excellent stay at the Carrington Arms in Moulsoe - about 2 miles from Cranfield. Double rooms at 32.50 a night, and good grub make it a good place to stay for anyone wanting a bed within easy reach of Allon White. I received a friendly welcome at Allon White & titivated my car's interior by buying a pair of the stainless chassis covers with centenary wings and a stainless horn push - in fact they let me have the one out of the display cabinet as they were awaiting a delivery later this week & it was the only one they had. I resisted the stainless indicator/wiper stalk conversion with some difficulty, but thought it best to leave myself a few mods to look forward to.
The car ran faultlessly and was much admired by all and sundry; in fact as the bridegroom and his family are Veteran car enthusiasts with about 10 pre 1905 cars between them, and I was sitting next to my father's cousin Valerie who has a London-Brighton car and a 30's Frazer Nash TT replica, for once I was amongst folk who consider a Morgan 4/4 daringly modern.
