[9th in the series and this is a good one! Enjoy, Mark]
[I enjoyed this one. Turn up the sound. Soon, hopefully very soon! Mark]
[They just keep coming! At least a little nostalgia to pacify the wanderlust in your soul. Cheers, Mark]
[The next in the series. I was there, a stow away on one of Andrea’s business trips. For more photos go to 2009 Morgan Centenary. Enjoy, Mark]
The Friday and Saturday of the big Centenary weekend: a cavalcade from Malvern; the Friday evening gathering at The Pittville Pump Rooms; the rainy Saturday events; Q & A to Charles Morgan and the evening’s gala dinner. And just what did Andrew English of The Daily Telegraph say about the Aero 8 at its launch?
Like other UK based car factories, Morgan Motors stopped production back at the end of March to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. This week the company has resumed production at its Malvern Hills based factory on Monday 12th May, bit in a limited fashion, only twenty staff have returned back to work.
“This very small scale reintroduction provides us a good opportunity to prove some of the new social distancing measures we have put in place throughout the factory alongside government guidelines. The welfare of our employees and compliance with social distancing measures remains the number one priority when we’re considering any of our business operations. We will reintroduce more staff back to the factory only when we feel it is safe to do so.”
[Exceptional Morgan Road Trip!! It begs the question ‘where are you taking your car today??’ I especially like the ‘snotamog . . . itsamog’ bit! There are others videos in the series available on You Tube. Just google ‘Vintage Roads Great and Small’ and they will all come up. They aren’t terribly quick to view, but you have plenty of time these days. Cheers, Mark]
[This is the 6th offering in the series ‘Morgan 100’. Enjoy, Mark]
Programme 6 kicks off with the launch of The Centenary Weekend with Charles Morgan at The Visitor’s Centre. This is followed by a journey with The Morgan Three Wheeler Club from Bransford, Malvern to Stoke Lacy via Shelsley Walsh! (Also featuring Chris Booth recreating a very famous 1909 photograph.)
[This car used to belong to the prolific Morgan author Ken Hill. I doubt there are many of you that don’t have one of Ken’s books. Well, the presenter is Ken Hill’s son who inherited the car when Ken passed. I have been to Beaulieu and I have seen this car. This is the ‘Morgan’ some of us dream about. Then there is George Proudfoot’s car, and then . . . Ok, so I have weird dreams! Cheers, Mark]
[A fairly honest review, some good . . . some bad, but it would appear the good outweighs the bad. Rumors persist that the Plus 6 will soon come to the US as a component car. Do you have your check book ready? Cheers, Mark]
[And they just keep coming. Enjoy, Mark]
Programme 5 is made up of six distinct features: a visit to the Goodwood circuit with Brands Hatch Morgans, more on the Malvern Hills with Med Snookes, the opening of Melvyn Rutter’s Pitstop B & B, the Morgan factory workers ‘Its A Knockout’ fun day, the Goodwood ‘Festival of Speed’ and Rounds 5 & 6 of the FIA GT3 Championship from Oschersleben, Germany. Plus a chance to see the short film I made about Melvyn’s garage in 2017.
