That is dead sexy.

Too bad I haven't a chance to own one.

... Of the *eight* that will ever be made.

Heh, I didn't realize there actually was one; Magneto was just the first one with a red and purple color scheme that I came up with.

When it is good, it is very very good.
But when it is bad, boom, Big Bada Boom.
One misfire in one cylinder will destroy a $30 or $40 thousand dollar motor.

Some years ago Sir John Harvey-Jones, former chairman of ICI, presented a TV series called 'Troubleshooter'.

In each episode he visited a firm which which was in need of a bit of advice to help it modernise or simply to survive.

The Morgan Car Co was the subject of one programme and I vividly remember him commenting that:

Quote:
Their pride seems to be in manufacturing from the furthest-back state they can, and buying the most basic material.
I am surprised they don't start with the tree itself.
Sir John was an engaging sort with an infectious cackling laugh and a TV natural.



Ten years later he went back to a number of the firms to see how each was faring.

The Morgan segment starts at about ten minutes in.



If you want to see the latest price list click here: Link

I suggest that you hold on to something firm while doing so.

BTW 1 = $1.24

I like those a whole lot.
Their cost is not out of line with a bunch of cars with less to offer.
As a practical matter, I will split a bottle of fragrance with one or two of you.

They gave me the US price lists which were in dollars, except the Plus Six gives me a 404 on the price.
The Plus-4 at $70k and Roadster at $80k (plus custom embroidery/piping and leather or Walnut dash, etc) are quite tempting.
However, I shan't do business with heathens who hang sweaters on hangers.

Slicks have lots of traction on dry pavement

Seeing tires worn past the tread was more common years ago.
Perhaps related was that flats and especially blow-outs were too.
Up to even the forties and fifties, actually fixing (patching) a tire on the side of the road was something you occasionally needed to do. Of course you carried a patch kit and a pump. LOL

Run-flats and no spare at all are taking over.
