Cruising England in Style
Considering a drive through the hills and dales of England? Why not do it in style in a Morgan. This classic, hand built British roadster is the only racing car to be offered for sale in a window of Harrod's department store. And although it isn't the only way to get around the British Isles, as The Savvy Traveler's Tom Verde discovered earlier this year, it's one of the most exciting.
