It depends on which side of the fence you sit

I do see the appeal of a classic Morgan (not the Aero). It's a bit like buying a vintage car straight from the factory.

They are obviously not better than modern designs or even as good, they are just different and unique.

I can imagine a few Morgan drivers put on their leather caps and string backed driving gloves and dream of the days when Spitfire's and Mustang's ruled the skies

I was trying to appeal to both sides of the pond

With it's wooden frame I guess the Hurricane would have been more appealing to Morgan nostalgia than even the Spitfire
