CHRIS HARRIS VIDEO: MORGAN PLUS 8
Why the Morgan Plus 8 puts the magic back into 'motoring' by our very own Chris Harris
The Morgan didn't accommodate much of his gear on the drive to Switzerland. The seat barely contained his 6ft frame and when the rain began trickling down the inside of the windscreen, he said, in his finest Welsh drawl, "80 grand? You're having a laugh right?"
Fast forward two days and he was cooing over the bodywork, in rapture about the noise and very fond of the Plus 8.
This car is a long way from perfect, but it is beguiling and addictive. If an alien asked me to summarise the process of loving motoring, as opposed to driving or speed or any other sub category of the genre, I would probably present this car. It takes a motoring addict to sift through the difficulties and extract the experience. It is that which separates those with a passing interest and those with a passion.
is especially badly affected by MMC II.
Yes, the experimental hood was a bit weepy and 11 hours and 45 minutes was a long time to drive it, but for good old fashioned adventuring, this is a fine machine.
I'd better go, I'm about to be sick.
