1937


Morgan 4-4  1937  imported by agent in Oct. Have owned same for 48 wonderful years & many great times. I first saw her at a motor show in the Hobart City Hall when I was 16yrs parked beside a Ferrari, the latter holding no interest at all. The next time was from the back seat of a bus crossing the old Hobart floating bridge, a bearded bod driving & what appeared to be a Great Dane wearing a blue scarf navigating. I was besotted. Two years later it was mine. Over the years restorations & modifications were necessary to keep the old girl both mobile and able to cope with modern traffic conditions, both amusing & astonishing some. Elderly smile knowingly, children first mesmerised then laugh & wave madly. It’s a great feeling, a great car, it’s a MORGAN.
