Know that moment of terrible realisation? The one when you suddenly become aware of something you should have done a long time ago, but somehow never got around to? I’m having one now. Because in eight years of writing this column, there is not one on my computer with the word ‘Morgan’ in its title. That’s the best part of 400 stories and while the name has popped up tangentially in other tales, none has featured Britain’s oldest sportscar manufacturer as its subject. It gets worse because at the same time, I’ve devoted 18 such columns to Porsche in one form or another. Eighteen! That’s over a third of a year.
The Super 3 could be the best Morgan ever | Thank Frankel it’s Friday
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
