Cars made from wood?

Well, some bits are... I had an amazing time earlier this week visiting the Morgan car factory and thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour. Having seen and worked in a busy, large car plant that churns out tens of thousands of cars a year, it was a real treat to see a cars being produce by hand and on a much smaller scale!  

Not every component is made by hand, there are aluminium sub frames, the engine is constructed off-site, but a large proportion of the bodywork, structure, interior and exterior finish is all done by hand.  Not only are the men and women that work in the factory true craftsmen, they are also very friendly and happy to stop and have a chat about what they do, there really is a family feel about this family company...
