A few minutes wandering around the showroom of the Morgan motor company (the oldest U.K. car manufacturer still in existence).

1. The new showroom (previously the R.S.R.E club )



2. Frogeyes and wings



3. British heritage



4. Beauty in Blue



5. Arch of Elegance



6. Choose you Colour



7. Impressive Interior



Sorry, I didn't note which model was which - but safe to say they were all above my price range

All taken with the K1 MkII and the D-FA 21mm Limited

Great variety of angles and subjects makes for a fascinating blast from the past. What is it about cars like these that has people (mostly men?) drooling?

Excellent set John, I did a factory tour a few years ago, the craftsmenship particularly on the hand cut bonnet louvers is superb, notwithstanding the bending of the chassis timbers and everything else.

Great subject, great compositions and great processing. Don't tell me you used your Ricoh GRiii for those, please.

Thanks for the comments (and the info Gary ) - No it wasn't the GRIII Peter, the trusty K1 MkII plus the incredible D FA 21mm Limited.

The tour has become much more of a thing recently Chris (particularly since the ownership change) and ironically I still haven't done it - it's one of those things you take for granted when you live so close. I could almost throw a cat from my place and hit the factory

I've got a few more colour shots to post - but I don't think they are quite as good as this lot

Thanks Chris - it's incredible to see these traditional methods still in use in the production of a current car. Good to see your photos (the "grill shot" is simply a must isn't it )
