2nd that. Would steal the engine and put it in something better looking. Too peak-capped for me i'm afraid.

Re: Morgan Aero 8

It's cool.
Beauty has nothing to do with coolness. Take me for example. Actually no, don't.

Re: Morgan Aero 8

I'm someone who cares about looks with a car and those mini headlights on a morgan ruin it. It could of been cool. But it's so ugly.

Re: Morgan Aero 8

I nearly bought one 2 years ago, at 1 year old (the old cross-eyed model) it was under half new price, where Morgan traditionally get almost new money. As a pastiche of the 1930's it does fairly well, but what a drive. Chassis from bonded sheet aluminium. Amazing developement for the outlay. Saw one on the road here Sunday. And the aeromax, inspired by Bugatti Atlantique, would do for me.
