IN MT. LEBANON MAGAZINE’S MAY,2019, ISSUE, we published a story titled The Morgan Moves On, by senior editor Katie Wagner. It featured David Burrows, Pat Haven Drive, and a storied 1951 Morgan Plus 4 four-seater classic car, which he purchased in 1986 but was preparing to ship it back to England to be reunited with the family of the original owners. You can read it at www.lebomag.com.
Marc Melada recently read this story while searching for a Morgan owner in Pittsburgh. Melada’s father, Dr. Arthur Levine, the recently retired dean of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine, is a “Morgan car fanatic,” according to Melada, and was about to celebrate his 85th birthday on November 1. Melada emailed Wagner, asking if she remembers finding anything in her research that might help him connect with a local Morgan owner to possibly organize a birthday surprise for his father. She forwarded it to Burrows, who, it turns out, has another Morgan, and was happy to organize a birthday surprise at his home for a fellow Morgan aficionado.
November 1 was a beautiful fall day, so not only did Dr. Levine get to see a Morgan—he got to go for a drive! “Art told me it was his best birthday ever … I enjoyed sharing my cars and military collection, so it was a good day for everyone,” said Burrows.
