Makes you wonder how much a Bugatti Royale is worth?

Here’s a 1964 Morgan. Probably $40K and it’s yours.

British racing green and wire spinners. Sigh, some things in my past were not wasted.

Morgans are strangely common in Israel.

I only know abou them because a guy had a yellow one that used to make my heart hurt.

Mine was not a Morgan but ‘only’ an Austin Healey.

There are 6 Royales, so they may be worth less. I know the owner of Dominos used to have one, maybe still does. Leno drove it once, and pronounced it incredibly stately and powerful, for a car that old, but it still steered like a truck.

She was the daughter of a wealthy
Florentine Pogen
Read'em and weep
Was her adjustable slogan

She was a debutante daisy
With a color-note organ
Deep in the street
She drove a '59 Morgan

That's the kinda step she takes
When her heart breaks
Heart brea-eaks
That's the kinda sound she makes
When her crab cakes
(Arf, arf-arf!)

She didn't like it when her fan belt
Shrunk and got shorter
Battery leaks could nearly
Cost her a quarter

She didn't want to stay home
An' watch the pestle go mortar
Later she speaks
On how Pirellis might court her

(Na-na-na-noo...)

She was the daughter
Ah-ah-ahhh
Of a wealthy
Florentine Pogen
Po-oh-wo-oh-oh
Po-oh-wo-oh-oh
Po-oh-wo-oh-oh
Ga-ya-ee-annnn

Chester's go-rilllll-a
She go, quack!
Chester's go-rilllll-a
She go, oink!
Chester's go-rilllll-a
She go, mooooo!
Chester's go-rilllll-a
She go, chkk, chkk!
Chester's go-rilllll-a
She go, chkk, chkk!
(...)

Well, there, they're called Morgan Davids.

I think the Aero 8 (the new one) is metal now, but I don’t know.

I was watching Car & Driver TV Sunday and the BMW engineers that designed the new engine said “finally a car deserving of my engine.”

One of the casinos in Vegas had one; truly stunning vehicle.
