Well, the stress of that dog made me confer Birthday honours on Bill rather early! So like our Queen he has this year had both an Official Birthday, and today his actual one.
Happy Birthday, Bill!
But for Buddy I would not have seen this rather special and rare car, as it was parked at the kennels where we left him.
I leave it to you boys to track down what model etc. When my mother was young the three-wheeler versions of the Morgan were often found upside down in the ditch as they were so very unstable! Not so with these. I believe there is a very long waiting list to purchase a new one.

Bill saw this from across the room (it's a very small room, so he got a good look) and said in a sort of starry-eyed voice, "that's a Morgan." So even before he's visited your gallery, I can tell you he likes this very much. :) Terrific shot, and a perfect choice!
One of many classics built by the Morgan Motor Company. This is a beauty and has all of the features of a pure British sportscar...particularly the cutdown doors, smooth rolling fenders, low windshield, wire wheels. I have owned an Austin Healey 3000 and two Triumphs (back in the 60s). A Morgan and a Jaguar have always been a bit beyond my means...but I can look and wish:) I just had to go back and read the latest wiki about what's going on at Morgan. Ooooo, the workers and many of the stockholders are unhappy. The flamboyant grandson of the founder of the company has been sacked from the company's board. This is the first time since the company was founded in 1910 that no Morgan family member remains as a director... Thanks for the double dose of kindness. The Queen and me huh,...love it.
Someone once wrote that British cars were built by sadists for masochists. I have owned a Morris Minor, Triumph Spitfire and an MGA. They kept me broke for years but British cars are the most charismatic in my opinion. The Morgan was an early fantasy of mine but, like Bill, always financially out of reach. A beautiful image and dedication for Bill.
Super shot of the highly desired Morgan automobile for Bill's birthday commemoration. When I saw the title, I thought you were referring to the following: Sir Henry Morgan (Harri Morgan in Welsh; ca. 1635 – 25 August 1688) was a Welsh privateer, pirate and admiral of the English Royal Navy, who made a name for himself during activities in the Caribbean, primarily raiding Spanish settlements. He earned a reputation as one of the most notorious and successful privateers in history, and one of the most ruthless among those active along the Spanish Main. Source: Wikipedia encyclopedia.
