Maybe our skills and determination in this field is under valued by ourselves ?

There are a lot of people with a lot of money so you never know !

I live near Malvern, home of the Morgan. I'm always surprised at the price of those cars. If you visit the place and have a look around you soon realise it's a bunch of blokes in a shed putting a kit of parts together ! The bespoke, hand made aspect is no different to the kit car industry.

You'll pay over 30,000 for one with a wheel missing. If you want one of the more sporty V8 cars you are well over 100,000 without many optional extra's.

Morgan are doing ok for a bunch of blokes in a shed and regularly turn over 1,000,000 a week !

On old Top Gear about ten years ago Hammond admitted that he'd bought one of those boss-eyed modernised Morgans. He wanted it to look unique (!!!) so he ticked the special options box for matt black wheels, which were a snip at just 7k.

Would've made more sense to just not wash the brake dust off them, they'd have looked the same after a week anyway and he could've spent the seven grand on medical insurance.
