The REAL Anorak Quiz

This quiz is intended to plumb the depths of your abstruse motoring knowledge. I constructed much of it from memory as a means of relieving the tedium of a series of long motorway journeys (which may show something of the sort of mind I have).

The Morgan Simulator

  I have discovered that my suggestion for a Morgan simulator wasn’t a new idea.  The attached was published in the Bulletin in 1968. With the possible addition of a modern video screen, this could provide an even more realistic experience. A possible project during lockdown? Best wishes,       Dave Anscombe
