I am surprised that you should print such appalling heresy as appears in David A. Adams’ letter in your December issue, unless it is to provoke controversy. If this is so, then you have succeeded.
The Morgan is the last of the true sports cars, there can be no mistake about this. Credit is due to Standard-Triumph for providing a sporting machine with cut away doors that is economical to produce in quantity, but the last real sports car, no, no, NO!
If Mr. Adams is so enamoured of cut away doors and the TR engine, let him buy a Morgan Plus Four, which has impeccable road-holding as well. I was also under the impression that a TR-engined Morgan could see off any Triumph equipped with the same motor.
Please do not take my first paragraph as disapproval of your excellent magazine.
A. J. Smith.
