Sir,

My son takes your publication monthly, and I take an interest in it, particularly in the correspondence columns concerning the reliability or otherwise of British cars.

We see only correspondence that denigrates British cars. Could it be the owners of all the “duff” foreign cars, either cannot write or are too shy to do so? I absolutely refuse to believe that of all the foreign cars produced never a faulty one reaches someone in this country!

What about printing the following? All the facts stated can be corroborated, and if anyone is interested enough, the car can be inspected at my address most evenings.

I purchased on behalf of my company in June 1971 a Hunter DL. Its registration number is XOV 890J, which I use in the course of my business. Today, June 17th, 1973, the speedometer reading is 93,067. This figure is genuine, as I am the only one to have driven it. It runs extremely well, does not use oil (although I must admit some of the oil seals in the engine leak a little), and is in general in excellent condition. It is the original engine, and clutch and I am only on the second set of tyres, and these have 10-15,000 miles of life yet.

The only work I have had done on it, was when I burnt out two exhaust valves, but this was my own fault, as I used 5 Star petrol for some time! I am connected with sales work myself, but he would have to be a good salesman to sell me a foreign car!

F.H. Stapley – Sheldon.
