Six Months On
Six months ago I never thought I would ever make another Westmog entry but here I am. I still get emails via the blog and according to the stats there is a steady stream of visitors, perhaps potential M3W owners? This means I have not been able to vanish compleatly. I don’t know why Morgan doesn’t make more of an effort with the M3W but firmly believe whoever is in charge of their internet presence should find another job, at least something they are good at. Morgan probably have all orders they can handle, so who needs the internet anyway?
Six months ago I waived goodbye to the Morgan M3W. My time as a Morgan caretaker had come to a natural end, or so I thought.
My decision to let it go was the culmination of common sense and applied logic. At the time, it was the right thing to do. Most of the background can be found in the blog if you scroll down. Unfortunately, logic plays no part in Morgan ownership, so on reflection, six months on, was it the right decision?
Summer was always going to be the ultimate test and I can say, hand on heart, I do not miss owning a Morgan but I do miss some of the experience. Let me try to explain.
Imagine owning a badger as a family pet. It is unpredictable, untrainable and has a tendency to bite when you least expect it. Badgers being an exotic pet attract large vet bills but in spite of this, you love your badger and are known as the man that owns a badger.
One day, the badger runs off. You are initially sad because the badger was a source of such joy but sadness soon gives way to relief when you realise you still have all your fingers.
So I don’t miss Morgan ownership at all and as a bonus I escaped with all my fingers. Would I own another? Of course… In a heartbeat..! But then, I’m not normal.
One thing I definitely don’t miss is the Morgan Forum and it’s resident oddballs . If you are reasonably intelligent and have a modicum of mechanical aptitude you don’t need it and I suggest you take this as a hint. It is a magnet for the socially awkward so avoid at all costs unless of course you harbour a syndrome’ in which case fill your boots. Weirdo.
A strange side effect of Morgan ownership, I did learn how to edit a reasonable video.

Goodbye (from a field near my house)
Welcome to My Morgan M3W blog which ran during my ownership (November 2014 to December 2017). It describes my three year love affair with a Morgan Three Wheeler and why, on so many levels, it was least practical but best car I have owned.
I have been astounded by the response to the closure of westmog. The phone calls, emails (including a nice one from high up at the factory) and the kind words on Talk Morgan were all very much appreciated. I wish you all happy and safe driving. Thank you and cheerio..
