An early morning start today as we set off for the Morgan Car Factory in Malvern. We visited each workshop where we learnt about the process involved in making the world famous Morgan Sports Cars. Each one is unique and made to order by highly skilled craftsmen. We saw the handmade ash wood wheel arches, the polished aluminium body for the Aero 8 model, the leather trim workshop, the dashboards and polished walnut, the paint shop where they apply 4 coats of primer, 4 paint and 2 varnish ending at the pdi section where the cars are checked under bright lights. The beautiful, stunning and expensive Aero 8 with its 360 bhp and V8 engine, selling for a grand sum of £90,000 plus. After our tour we then went on to the Swan Inn for lunch and a pint before driving back. A thoroughly enjoyable boys day out.
