White is the fashion. From A4s to Evoques (and other distinctly non-MotorPunk cars) it seems that white is today’s ‘thing’. Fashion, though, is transitory. I recall a time when louvered rear windows was the fashion – for about 3 weeks in the early eighties. Something red hot today will be stone cold tomorrow. Fashion moves quickly, leaving you with yesterday’s ‘thing’ rapidly depreciating on your driveway. Or, if it’s a louvered Capri, rotting on the lawn. Black has always been stylish, and style is timeless. In the case of cars, black might be stylish but it’s also a right pig to keep clean. And so, in one great rambling leap, to Malvern, where I returned a fashionably white 4/4 to find this brown Roadster. I don’t know the Morgan name for this paint. Perhaps it’s barbecued bronze, or Worcester sludge. Whatever. It’s brown, inside and out, and I like it. There – I’ve said it. Is brown the new black? Have a look at the pics and let us know what you think. I’ve got a car to clean.

    Brown is as 70s as flared slacks, Babycham, pampas grass and Farah Fawcett. So for this reason we salute Morgan. Only lay off the louvreism! It’s next on my Celica’s metamorphosis from standard Jap crappery to laughable Jap crappery.
