The legendary Morgan Motor Company remains proudly independent to this day, run by Charles Morgan, grandson of founder Harry Frederick Stanley Morgan (or “HFS”). Based in Worcestershire, the luxury car manufacturer employs less than 200 people and produces less than a thousand pieces a year. This is because every Morgan is painstakingly and lovingly hand-made. Another shocking fact: while the shell of a Morgan is metal, much of the car remains made of wood. Because each one is put together by hand, every Morgan is also uniquely beautiful. The waiting list for one of these can range from a year to two, but one might develop patience for such quality.
