Morgan 3-Wheeler Vs. 1955 Land Rover Series 1: A Very Biased Comparison Test
The three-wheeled speed machine faces off against a six-decade-old off-roader.
After soundly defeating the Vanderhall Venice last week, my Morgan 3 Wheeler remains the world’s best/worst car. Those boys from Utah didn’t stand a chance. You who else doesn’t a chance? The dozens of Lambo and Ferrari owners who saw Episode 2 and offered to bring their Huracans and 488s to Brooklyn for a face-off.
But why bother reviewing those Italian lawn mowers? If you like meeting 14-year old boys and hanging out with that fool Shmee150, here’s a list of Ferrari’s U.S. dealer list. When people talk about how much passion they have for cars, they’re really saying that they like one-way relationships. Relationships without pushback. What a bunch of sissies. True love requires friction. True love means fighting a bit and making up. For that, the Morgan 3 Wheeler will give you a relationship unlike any other.
Which is why it perfect sense that Alloy and Grit Magazine—experts in all things British, awesome and terrible—would lend me their 1955 Land Rover Series 1 for a head-to-head comparo in a battle of patina, bailing wire, and Lucas electronics.
