Pagoda Cotswolds Tour 2019
« on: September 12, 2019, 20:50:08 »

Six UK Pagodas recently toured  the Cotswolds ,  The Morgan Car Factory in Malvern  and Hemmels in Cardiff . The  700 mile Pagoda Cotswolds Tour was organised by Ray (Marilyn)  and lasted 5 wonderful and enjoyable days.The weather & food was fantastic.

The Morgan factory is modernising ! & it was interesting to see old and new technologies together in one factory.
I was impressed with  Hemmels, who were very welcoming and open with us.They
 only do Ground Up Nut & Bolt Restorations of  Mercedes 300, 190 & 280 SLs .Nearly all the restoration processes are in house & in my opinion, their standard of workmanship was excellent. -  well worth a visit if you are in the area.

I recognise most of these people.  :) Well done. Local outings with a bunch of Pagoda's always fun...

Nice Photographs Paul. Thanks for sharing!

I wish more of our Members would organize local outings, it is so much fun.

Garry and I saw a few Morgans on our way back to Nice from Bordeaux, France. Nice car, we do prefer our Pagoda :)
