I did this wrong to start with... I replied to another thread in this forum instead of starting a new thread. This is my attempt to fix that...

So, I bought this almost a year ago and kept telling myself that I’d set up a ‘verified’ shot… tomorrow. I bought it on an on-line auction – threw in a bid that I was sure was much too low. Wrong! Then I had to take my trailer from Ohio to South Carolina to bring it home. It has, however, been fun! That, and my girlfriend loves it! One thing that the P.O. told me and I’ve learned is true – you don’t take one of these anywhere you don’t want attention! I’ve had it to a couple of cruise-ins and I can barely sip my drink between questions.

What a beauty, a car from back when men were men, sheep were scared, electrics were sketchy and cars were extremely flammable.

You can't be far away from KaJuN who is apparently in Dayton, it would be great to see a picture of this next to my old Land Rover.
 
Ooooh nice, a Morgan from the era where they weren't even massively retro.

I'm guessing the DHC aspect gives you a bit more headroom and a proper windscreen? Do these have the Standard/Triumph tractor engine?
Most people like the roadsters better, but I've always liked the DHCs. The top folds back into the boot (instead of coming off the car, like the roadsters) and the 'side curtains' are actually sliding glass windows with frames that drop into the door tops. And yes, it has the 2 liter (1991 cc) Triumph engine. That's a plus for me, because I've owned two TR4s, so I'm comfortable servicing that engine. Right now, we've got the top off the car, as it really needed a new one. I'm having one made from the 'Mercedes'-type cloth instead of the original vinyl - much easier to deal with in cool weather.
 
Love this. Not like, love.

Dayton is about a 2 1/2 hour drive for me. I am up there now-and-then, so I'll try to remember to PM him if I'm planning a trip - although, I'm still not too comfortable doing longer drives in this 60+ year-old critter!
 
what what what, how did i miss? dude, this is so cool and i had no idea you could get a Morgen in the US at all.
