We spent late and all afternoon at the show and got to see some splendid cold and vintage Some well kept and highly polished and well after. Some were not so kept and looked like the car to be taken off the road and totally such as a poorly Morgan Wheeler we saw towards the end of the show.

You Feel As If You’re In A Of A Spitfire

This weekend was all in all a fantastic weekend and really to say the least. Shame that my (who I have not seen in an had to leave so soon but, I am that we shall see each again real soon.

morning started very for us all, early I mean 07:00, and we got up, washed and dressed and a really great breakfast jumping into the car and driving to the Factory. Now for all of you who don’t know Morgan are the oldest sports car around and it’s always owned and run by the Morgan family, and as been made in England.

We had been lucky enough to a place on the Morgan factory which was a special tour as it was on a and was in honour of a proposed Morgan more about this can be found a little further in this blog. If you want a Morgan factory tour all you to do is phone them up and ask for times and

When we arrived at the factory we shown into a reception which was presentable and was done up in Morgan style colours and and once we signed in we walked a conference centre and offered tea or Also there was a selection of biscuits, you could have as cups of tea or coffee and indeed as you wanted, I was modest some greedy (looks at Motoko).

the conference centre was a really Morgan, which was in a one off paint of bronze, which was made to a new statue that is going to be put up in the Morgan car and the Morgan family.

Once the tour was well we were first shown a in the conference centre on a projector which was fairly well put and thought out. Thought it was a outdated, the information was still and interesting. Then once the was over we all marched outside and up to he of the garages, which was used as a and dispatch area for all the cars have been finished.

you could see such a Varity of waiting for shipping or their new Be nice to buy one of these little wouldn’t it.

Also here was a little gold car styled only thing is that was a custom made one by Morgan for use by their staff to go around the of the factory. It looks fantastic and as good as their proper cars for sale. There was a red which was in a different part of the

The second area we seemed to was one of the construction areas and was a really smell of industrial goings on and a wooden small. There was a rich smell of new rubber as well, and sure enough was a massive surplus of tyres up very high to one corner of the we explored.

Another surplus of parts in area was an abundance of engines and were just dropped off a day we got there and they still totally brand new, and were spotless. In fact the factory from top to bottom was really well kept.

One that makes Morgan is out the fact that 99% if not 100% of all cars are made on site, and all by hand. You see a wooden frame and you that has been cut by hand a hand saw and sanded down by Shaped wood has been together and then clamped in a to be bent into a shape, it’s in the shape it stays in the for a weekend to make sure the has works and that the wood hold its shape.

A panel is shaped by hand by beating it and a few are formed using super Below you can see a band shaping a for a bonnet by hand using but a hammer.

Picture below is what the man shape the panel into, good workmanship.

In the next we were taken too they bending and shaping the wood, and you can see the oak vice gripping the bonded of ash (I think it was ash) and shaping it a desired shape. This be in the vice for about 48 hours, to sure that it is fully and will not loose its shape out of the vice.

So here we have photograph of some more done by hand, here are still making the wooden for the cars, and its very skilful goes on here.

After you go the row of factory garages you then get to go again and then cross the paint room, but nothing was worth taking a photograph of so I take any. But once we across from said to the finishing off area as they said I took a lot more Here you can see the guide showing of the safety kit that is fitted to the Morgan’s.

Now then as some of you may know have remade a three car, and I have to say that it is I have never seen so passion put into a car before, and they didn’t have the three wheeler styled car here the three wheeler had put out for us was every bit as fantastic. Below you can see of the of the staff making the Morgan Wheeler.

Morgan’s three is set to be another iconic Morgan car, and was designed to be adrenaline dramatic and a fun driving experience. market driving this car as In A Cockpit Of A Spitfire”!

Once the came to an end we had lunch which was by Morgan and then everyone to leave and go home, and so did we. To sum up the trip in a few the trip really was fantastic and a great experience.
