The annual Morgan Run continues with the goals of driving and seeing interesting places. This year's Morgan Run was very special as we got a personal tour of the Spaceport America facilities...photo shoots in front of the Spaceport and drives on the runway no less!
Some think English marques are not really built to drive but to have and worry over. And, surely, our English car owners are never happier than when spending endless hours with spanners and parts manuals under the bonnets of his/her favorite Brit car.
The annual Morgan Run, however, continues to show that the real enjoyment is driving our British cars, even when our cars develop their own attitudes! The Pattison/Fitzsimmons Morgan made for some grief the morning of this Morgan Run for want of better battery contacts. The McCann Morgan fell victim to new technology when a cell phone directed its inattentive user to hit its near side wing, thus putting it out of this year's Morgan Run. The Dickerson/Cordova Morgan decided to let go some additional weight by dropping the hardware supporting its generator, but, fortunately, waited until stopping at home after the Morgan Run for this show of temperament. Not to be left out, the Clark Spitfire decided to forego its shift lever. This was repaired "on the fly," ensuring happy attitudes for the Morgan Run. The Townley Austin Healey petro pump had its own attitude, too, which is still in need of adjustment.
In spite of these few cars wanting their own attention, our 39 participants traveling in 21 cars, 13 of which were English marques, drove the 240 miles to make for another successful Morgan Run,
"A Change of Attitude at Change of Latitude."
