I had a Dream

I had a Dream:

I dreamed that I could get as many pictures of my Morgan in an issue of Miscellany as Keith Ahlers. Ridiculous, how could anyone do that?

Well, in the September 2006 issue of Miscellany, our car EOM 491 (1938 4/4 DHC, black) did indeed feature in four pictures, at MOG 06. Keith's car is in a total of... four pictures in the whole magazine.

Keith had a dream:

He dreamed that in one day he would win a race at Goodwood, beat Stirling Moss, and be kissed by Marilyn Monroe. Ridiculous, how could anyone do that?

Well, on Saturday 2nd of September 2006, at the Goodwood Revival Meeting, Keith did indeed win a race. It was the Fordwater Trophy race, he was driving a Morgan Plus 4 SLR, and Sir Stirling Moss was in an Austin Healey Sebring Sprite, coming in half way down the field. And Marilyn Monroe? She (a lookalike) was there to present the laurels and to congratulate the winner with a kiss.

So, sometimes dreams can come true.
