  2. I was ever so pleased to learn that there is a Morgan dealer in the town where I went to college: Morgantown.

  3. I have always loved Morgans but, sadly, owning one has never been in the cards. Great photos of some of the all time classic roadsters.

  4. A vintage sportscar which can still be purchased new, provided you have the money, the patience to endure the waiting list, and the ability to undo its conversion to LPG or whichever fuel is required to get it into the country. They do have a unique charm.

  5. I so wish there were cool cars like this occasionally driving around East Texas...it is all pickup trucks and the occasional Jeep.....Oh, and the oddball retired teacher who has that Subie.( Y'all do not know how rare they are in this portion of Texas )

    1. An occasional Land-Rover pickup truck shows up here but I don't think I've ever seen one. There were three Land-Rovers in town where I went to school, all station wagons ("estate cars"), one of which was mine. Mine was a short wheelbase, the others long wheelbase versions. For a couple of years they were available with V-8s, the same V-8 used in the Range Rover and the Rover 3500 sedan. It was a Buick design. Morgans are rare everywhere, I'm sure. I've actually seen more AC Cobras than I have Morgans.

  6. This brings back memories. In high school I had a crush on a guy who drove one. I saw him at church every Sunday and never said a word to him. Typical school girl thing. Those cars are wonderful in their own right, but they still make me chuckle.

  7. Is that Bernie Sanders at the wheel of the purple Morgan? I knew it -- he's a closet capitalist!

  8. My neihbor has a Morgan. A beautiful car. Each time I see it I think, "All cars should have strap-down hoods."

  9. We went to the Morgan factory in Malvern Link, UK a couple of years ago. I was a member of the Philadelphia Morgan Owners for about 30 years, ‘joined with the idea of finding one I could afford-unfortunately that never happened. Bittersweet memories. My first car was a MG-TD, later TR3, Lotus Europa, and 2 Land Rover Discovery’s.
