I could not believe my eyes when the most beautiful 1947, vintage Morris 8 motor car pulled up outside Hungerford Arcade.  The brilliant jet black paintwork sparkled in the sunshine and the chrome shone like a mirror.  The interior was immaculate, the gorgeous leather seats were like new.  In fact, the car could not have looked better on the day it was built. Of course, such a stunner was going to attract a lot of attention and indeed it did. Proud owner, Peter Willoughby and his lovely wife, Maria had driven down from Bewdley, near Kidderminster where they own and live in the stunning, Edwardian, four star rated Bewdley Hill House B&B set in some of the most beautiful countryside in Worcestershire.  The area takes its name from the Forest of Wyre once a medieval hunting forest.  On reaching Hungerford, they met up with Peter's brother John and his wife, Eileen who had travelled from Buckinghamshire for the rendezvous.  Great fun was had by all in the Arcade as Peter is such a comedian and full of fun - laughter was certainly the name of the game!   Peter went on to purchase a lovely old wicker picnic hamper which is perfect for the Morris 8 and will be very useful when they go out to their classic car events. 

It was a great pleasure to meet Peter, Maria, John and Eileen and see the beautiful 1947 Morris 8 and we hope to see you back very soon.
