A SPORTS THREE-WHEELER
I read with surprise and some humour the letter from Mr. L. Oehvit about, his Berkeley. I and some of my friends have had considerable experience with these cars. As regards the body cracking. this was only on the early models and the works very soon sent out a modification which was carried out on theSe ears at no cost to the customer, and ha a proved satisfactory. The speedo. cable can hardly be blamed on Berketoys. and this is a thing which will go on the most expensive of ears; likewise a water leak on the hood of an open car—this is nothing that cannot be put right with very little trouble.
Let use look on the credit side. it is the first serimis attempt by a British manufacturer to produce a sports three-a heeler since the days of the Morgan, and you have only to talk to the inanny hundreds of satisfied Berkeley owners already on the road to see what it success they have made of it. Certainly there will be the odd snags cropping up; they crop up on ears costing thousands of pounds.
I remember a certain make of very popular sports car introduced some years ago, when the front wheels flew off, but this trotter was put. right. Come, come, Mr. Ochvit ! Let us be fair and reasonable, and if then you think that you have a genuine complaint take the matter up with Mr. Edwards, the Sales Manager of Berkeley Cars, whom I have always found most ready to help. I am, Yours, etr.,
