Re: Plus 4 racers lunch

Yes it was nice to see everyone - even though we did miss our facetime with John Clarke...!

And thank you Bob for my photos too.

Look forward to seeing everyone at some cold and windy race circuit soon...!

Cheers,

Re: reverse wire edged bonnet

Hi John, The bonnets on Choc Ices are like this. And they look really good. When I bought my black car (as a pile of bits) it came with a pair of red bonnets with the earlier type (riveted) bonnet scoop. They too were original wired edge bonnets - shame they wouldn't fit as I rebuilt the car as a lo...

The pub is very much open!

I have stopped off recently a couple of times on my way back from working in London before Christmas.

Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday lunchtime 21st January.

I know the feeling Peter... Philip and I have also reluctantly decided to sell our pretty little red historic Plus 4 Supersports rep. It too has now arrived with Richard Thorne and he and I only discussed the depressing issue of price yesterday afternoon...! All the best and I suspect that you like ...

We were second in class behind Richard Thorne but (Jonny) posted the fastest lap time of all the Morgans! M...

Re: Auction Plus 4 plus

It didn't sell Peter - but you can "Buy It Now' for around £75,000.

Hi Alan,

If you send me a PM with your email address I will see what Jonny and I have got between us as we are sharing the Flat Rad in the FISCAR race.
