I have a raging cold. The cause of my sniffling is a Morgan Plus 4. I spent the Bank Holiday weekend driving one around Cornwall in the St Mawes Classic Car Rally.
Around 30 cars took part and my £30k ‘classic’ didn’t look out of place up against the Ferraris, Aston Martins and other items of spectacularly expensive beauty.
And that’s the joy of a car like the Morgan. It’s a new-old car that ticks both boxes. With a timeless number plate, it’s almost impossible to know the Morgan was only built six months ago.
Of course, if you want to spend £400,000 on something a little more exotic that’s fine too. But having travelled in both this weekend, I can say the Plus 4 is just as entertaining.
If only you could hear the stereo above 65mph, it would be the perfect weekend motor…
