A series of unfortunate of events this year has left the Morgan languishing in the garage for large chunks of this summer. Plans drawn up during the dark nights of winter had to be shelved while other, more pressing matters, (one involving the Devon Air Ambulance), have taken priority.
To compound this annoyance, the Morgan has never run so well. Even the bevel box that can sometimes prove troublesome on these cars doesn’t complain and remains practically silent.
Morgan banned from ‘Run For The Hills’ event
The car is registered for the event but my little navigator, Morgan M4L has been banned from attending.
So you are allowed to wander around the Malvern show ground smoking a pipe or while using one of those ridiculous vape dummy’s but not while accompanied by a sausage dog in goggles. This apparently, is due to loud noises and fireworks. We wouldn’t have stayed for the fireworks and he travels in a Stage 1 M3W for goodness sake..
I should have checked before registering but have become so used to Devon and Cornwalls easy going attitude to ‘ hairy children’ that I forget he is a dog.
If there is a positive to all this it’s not running the risk of being enveloped in a huge cinnamon flavoured cloud. What is all that about..?
With all the summer rain I briefly reconsidered wearing a helmet. (Yes, I know they look stupid)
But a helmet does protect the wearer from needle sharp cold rain and noise even though they look pretty ungainly in the Morgan. I cant help thinking of those large hair salon driers. So in spite of the rain I still don’t think I will bother.
