Classic Morgan Sports Cars

28 Jun 2021 1:50PM   Views : 587 Unique : 354

Every year at the Arley Garden Festival we have the display of Morgan sports cars. Two seater, open top, wire wheels, lovely.......basically the same as the original 1950 design, but underneath filled with modern technology inlcuding the 2 litre BMW engones, auto gearboxes, lovely leather seats.......It's evoking the world of the open road, sun shining, wind blowing through our hair, stopping at countryside wayside inns....Of course, on a motorway perhaps not quite so good, covered in diesel fumes and roaring lorries surrounding us, but that's another story. But I'll ignore that ignoble thought and instead just enjoy looking at these fine, lovingly cared for cars. It's a shame that my model of choice would cost nearly 70,000, if I could get one anythime soon.

The cars were owned by members of the Morgan Sports Car Club, who can be found at www.morgansportscarclub.com

Personally I prefer the British Racing Green, but I could be persuaded by other colours at a pinch!

The Pentax and the Butterfly

I always carry my trusty Pentax MX-1, probably the best compact camera that I have ever used. It is staggeringly useful in terms of functions, not too large or heavy and sturdily made. It also has a great lens, the SMC Pentax 8-25mm f/1.8-2.5, comple...

Historic Tyldesley - Frank's Cafe and More!

There was a cafe in this building for many years, well loved by local people and run by Frank and his wife. Eventually, of course, Frank retired and the building has been under restoration for some time now. If you look on YouTube one of the urban ex...

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

There is a road sign that says "Welcome to Historic Tyldesley" or something similar, and for a while we scratched our heads wondering what excatly was historic about Tyldesley. Well, slap on the hand for us, because there are plenty of things that w...

Buile Hill Greenhouse - Progress Report

We were down at Buile Hill Park in Salford today, just to see how the mansion and the Greenhouse were getting along. The mansion is under restoration at the moment, but the greenhouse was set to be demolished. This was such a wonderful place, with bi...

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...

In 2010 we visited the Morgan factory in Malvern, well worth a visit.
We happened to be in customer services when a German and his son arrived. They had come across to see the progress on his new car. Apparently the agent/dealer in Germany had been keeping him informed of how the work was getting on.
But the construction had not been started! The customer was obviously not very happy and we were gently ushered through into the factory.

Oooops!
had they kept the steering wheel and the pedals on the right? Ja, ja, Ich wouldn't be happy either.

But I'm always happy to spot a Morgan parked somewhere.
