Dear All,

The 25th of September will be the day we love to see as many as possible older Morgans together. Location: Experience Center Morgan Motor Company. The gate is open from 9.00 hour.
We celebrate 85 years 4/4, 70 years Plus, 60 years Plus Super Sports. (all types) If you don't have a factory registered Plus 4 Super Sports,NO problem at all, you are more than welcome. Do you have an "after market" Plus 4 Super Sports, NO problem. Do you have a +8 with carburetors, you are more than welcome.
If you have a Morgan without a carburetor, NO problem. But please, don't park in the lane between the older Morgans. There is parking space enough.
It's possible to visit the factory. We have 4 guide tours. Each tour with a maximum of 10 people. There are still some places available.

Of course you can visit the new Archive Room, the Morgan shop and The Canteen.
If you like to have lunch, you are welcome, but please let me know!!

After lunch there is a possibility to visit Cameron Engineering. This company is specialist in restoration of Morgan 3 wheelers, old motorbikes and classic cars. They even produce NEW JAP V-twin engines.

Are you interested, please contact me and let me know

-what type of Morgan you bring with you (year the car was build),
-do you like to do a factory tour
-lunch?
-Cameron Engineering,

The day isn't for free!! £28,- You pay this after your arrival to the ladies of the MMC

For all the visitors with an older Morgan (4/4, +4, +4 SS) we have a little surprise, yes for free!

Look forward to see you, Machiel Kalf machielkalf@ziggo.nl

Thanks to Machiel and Andy for organizing a great day. Really good to see so many Morgans at the factory, and meet up with old friends at last, and put faces to names.

Thanks for your message Ian.

I think many people have seen new "developments" like the SLR with crossflow cylinderhead.

Someone wrote to me: Cameron was a petrol heads dream. Well, that was precise what the idea behind this was: to show a hidden gem for the owners of older Morgans.
If you have made photos, please, show them to me. The coming week I have to start with writing the monthly edition of MHR-News. I/ we love to show the Morgan world how fascinating the world of older Morgans is.

Best regards and thanks for your message, Machiel.

Thanks for your kind comments Ian - it was good fun and Cameron Engineering was a masterstroke by Machiel.

The turnout was better than I expected and I was happy to help out on the ground along with Tim Marsh, Tim Ot, and Adrian Dence.

Machiel and I have ideas for 2022 but if you do too - PLEASE let us know your thoughts.

A couple of pictures below so others can see what it was like - look out for a report in Miscellany.

Have Fun (with older Morgans) 8-) 8-) 8-)

Great photos Andy, thank you.

Where is the prototype living now? I LOVE the interior, properly patinated!
