Bargain Hunter: Car of the week Less is Morgan

Click to follow
IT'S CHRISTMAS, so go on, treat yourself to something uncomfortable, old-fashioned - and rather wonderful.

There is no sane reason for buying a Morgan, but plenty of emotional ones for investing in this 1930s throwback. It is hand-built - actually fussed over by craftsman's hands - and its rock-hard suspension and minimal wet-weather protection refuse to pamper driver and passenger. To get a new one means waiting until Christmas 2005, so it's advisable to buy a used one. Bridge Garage (01702 296109), in Essex, has a 9,000-mile model, finished in seasonal white and marked down from pounds 21,995 to pounds 19,995 - about what the first owner paid for it in 1994.
