Doing the top-down trip, classic British roadster-style
Click to preview
Open Season is still in full swing here at PH Towers, with at least two of our number planning open-air Christmas sojourns with topless lovelies. (Easy now, Riggers - Ed).
But we feel that there are those of you out there who might be faltering.
So to encourage you all to keep the Open Season spirit burning through a very cold Christmas, today's POTW features a Morgan doing its roof-down thing in a most British way, albeit in wrong-hand-drive form and on the wrong side of the road - suggesting this heroic British driver might in fact be German. (Right, stop that hissing at the back. Just because The Dam Busters may be on the telly over Xmas, there's no excuse...)
Yes, in the true spirit of Open Season, we applaud Morgan drivers (wherever they come from) for their almost universal antipathy to driving with the roof up. It's not as though it's difficult to put the roof up on a Moggie without losing skin, eh..?
I think you'll find that it Matt Humphries their car designer who is definitely not German, and having been in that actual car, it is not left hand drive. The image must have been flipped round in photoshop.

I think the Great Escape has more chance of being on the telly over Christmas than the Dambusters!!

Absolute respect though I am biased.
Oh, and it takes me 5 seconds and at any speed under 25mph to put my Morgan's hood up. Though I still have it down 95% of the time, what's the point of having a convertible otherwise?

Brings back happy/traumatic memories of being strapped in the back of one for a large chunk of the '80s. The ideal family car
