  2. Non-Morgan: 3, 2, 1, Series Land Rovers at today’s Land Rover Expo in Sydney. I particularly like the 109 Series II Station Wagon that looks to be undergoing a rolling restoration; striking the balance between restoration and originality.

     
  3. Non-Morgan: this Series 1 won the “Most Original” class at today’s Land Rover Expo in Sydney.

     
  4. More of the SP1.

    One-off Morgan SP1, as posted by head designer John Wells on Twitter. Gorgeous car. Follow John Wells for more images soon I’m sure!

    This looks to me like a Morgan crossed with a Transformer, though absolutely striking without a doubt. At first I thought it might be the production version of the Life Car, but the power plant in the SP1 seems to be a conventional Ford V6 rather than a step change beyond fossil fuels. Pity.
    I look forward to reading more in MOG Magazine soon.

     
  6. Non-Morgan: a good mate has just bought a new Land Rover Discover and was invited to take part in “The Land Rover Experience” and I was delighted to be his guest. Tackling bush tracks to the north of Sydney after two weeks’ rain, I was very impressed by the vehicle’s incredible off road ability. With standard road tyres and out-of-the-showroom set up, the Disco 4 was unbelievable. The clever technology, phenomenal suspension and amazing torque made for effortless climbing, descending, wading and driving through deep deep mud. Some of the angles we tackled were incredible. And it was bloody comfortable whilst doing so.The terrain we covered in the out of the box Disco was the type of thing I have only seen on YouTube clips with nutters in heavily modified 4x4s with huge suspension and hard core mud tyres. This is one very capable and clever vehicle.
    When I arrived I joked that I would like to try a Series 2A, and I still would, but sentiment for old legends aside, Land Rover is by no means relying on its pedigree to sell its new luxury off road cars. This Discover applies amazingly sophisticated systems, chassis rigidity, engine torque and passenger comfort to create a new kind of legend. Certainly it is over engineered for the school run, but if you need a real go anywhere vehicle, I can’t imagine anything more capable.

     
  7. Non-Morgan: yes indeed it is a small car. Perhaps THE small car.
    I spotted this Mini in the city car park where I leave the family wagon after the school run. I can’t help but feel the owner enjoyed parking it in this particular space.

     
  8. It doesn’t look much at the moment, but this Fiat two-litre engine will become the basis for my Mog’s conversion to (almost) Plus Four spec. At this stage the plan looks like this; worked head, hardened valve seats, mildly tuned cams, twin side draught Webers, lightened flywheel and extractors. By this time next year my grin should tell the story!

     
  9. Non-Morgan: what a magnificent GT this is! A 330 Ferrari, and yes, those are the twelve pistons resting on the Weekend Australian. I popped in to visit mechanic friend Tim today and this is his current customer project. I think I have chosen the right fellow to undertake my Mog’s conversion from Fiat 1600 to 2000 twin cam, his love and skill with Italian engines is amazing.

     
  10. I just saw this sticker on a Toyota in Sydney’s CBD. Hilarious!
    I have occasionally wondered why Australians do this. Any answers out there?
