Veterans for Sale?

We have now established that the premises illustrated last month as containing some delectable veteran and Edwardian cars are those of Est. Gaston, Automobile Demolision, Nice, which gives the lie to stories of how France has been combed and squeezed dry of such vehicles! All that the hundreds who wrote or telephoned for this address need now is a large bag of dollars and a Bristol Freighter. They will have the decided advantage of all being able to start at the same time!

Car Prices in Sydney

A correspondent, writing from Haberfield, New South Wales, draws attention to car prices prevailing in Sydney, where the Standard Ten De Luxe is known as the Cadet and costs £906, or thirteen pounds more than the Volkswagen at £893. Other interesting prices are: Renault 750 £689, Fiat 600 £759, Citroen 2 c.v. £782, Austin A30 (imported) £788, Fiat 1,100 £999, Hillman Minx £1,033, Simca Aronde £1,080, Peugeot 203 £1,097, Wolseley 4/44  £1,235, Jaguar XK140 £1,979, Humber Super Snipe £1,984, Holden £933, and Austin A50 £1,063.

Not Good Enough

The Royal Automobile Club announces that there will be no award of the Dewar Challenge Trophy for 1955.

The Dewar Trophy, presented by Sir Thomas R. Dewar, M.P., in 1904, may be awarded annually by the R.A.C. for the most outstanding British technical performance in the field of automobile engineering accomplished during each year under the terms of the award.

In the opinion of the Technical and Engineering Committee of the Royal Automobile Club, no performance of sufficient merit, of which the club is aware, had been accomplished in 1955 and the Committee therefore recommended that the Trophy should not be awarded.

The Trophy was last awarded in 1951 to Jaguar Cars, Ltd., for their performance in four major international events.
