Went to see my buddy today - he’s got a very interesting car on his ramp. He bought it earlier in the year - some might recognise it from Top-gear

There’s a very interesting project for him there - and possibly another one in that shed for me as well - we shall see if that comes off.

You fancy a TVR then @Barrykearley?

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

It’s not a tvr, it’s a melling - it’s some TVR like thing from a guy whom used to work at TVR - they only made a few - thankfully - it’s a monster and not particularly good.

The red Morgan in front is what I’m eyeing up - requires a new chassis - just depends on what deal we can do with the insurance company involved

I've got a log splitter if you need to borrow one.

Morgan, that’s really cool! I was only watching the Wheeler Dealers episode where they did a chassis change a few days ago. Lots of work but all looked like quite good fun and you have the lift to separate the body.

Good luck and hope it works out 👍🏻

A friend of mine has a relatively new Morgan +4. He’s just moved to Cornwall so I had it stored with me here for a few days while he moved, with an opportunity to drive it when the car transport guy came to collect.

It’s definitely an acquired taste I think. His has some odd floor hinged pedals plus what I think is a fly handbrake way under the dash. I only drove it a few yards but quite an odd experience. Not my thing at all but my mate (and his wife) absolutely love it. Plus it seems there’s a very social club scene.

Each to their own!

Meanwhile, talking of projects, here on the south coast this ghost of Christmas past arrived yesterday...
