My grandpa sent me an email with some pictures and a link for this company. Very cool and interesting stuff here. Never would have thought a car would still be made with wood like that.

building?

There are craftsmen...and there areCraftsmen !! The Morgan Motor Company located in Britain doesn't


change in a changing world. Not only is it still independent,


but it also makes each car by hand. A base model is about


$44,000, with some cars costing


up to $300,000.








People wait for over a year to get their exclusive


hand-built cars with the shell made out of metal and


much of the vehicle made out of wood. Working on the


wood interior, workers use metal shears to


individually shape a hood because each car has to be


different.








Every year Morgan produces about 600 cars.


The company celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011.


It has a long and interesting history, and is still run by


the same family: the Morgans. Founded by Henry


Frederick Stanley Morgan known as "HFS", it


was then run by his son Peter, and is now run by


Charles, the son of Peter Morgan.

I can't seem to see the wood working pics or video. Website is cool. My uncle had a Morgan when I was a little kid. It was pretty much a POS as a lot of older British cars were. It was always needing repair. No idea what year his was, but it was old in the early 70's. I remember my father telling me they were made out of wood, lol.
