I have just read your road test of the new production Jowett “Javelin” in the Oct. 1948 issue of Motor Sport and note a remark made regarding the built-in lamps fitted on these cars. This is to the effect that “one cannot alight and slap built-in parts into happier positions,” I would imagine that this would not improve any external lamps that were correctly mounted on any vehicle and with regard to the built-in type of lamp this of course can be adjusted quite easily with the aid of a screwdriver both vertically and horizontally by set screws beneath the lamp rims.
I would like to point out that I have no connection with Messrs. Lucas, but this comment does seem to me to be rather misleading for anybody who is unfamiliar with the modern built-in lamp.
As a regular reader of your journal for some considerable number of years I would like to enquire whether it would not be possible to include a road test on a current high-performance car in each month’s issue instead of the occasional road test which does appear quite often in connection with cars of the more conventional utility class, good though they undoubtedly are.
I am, Yours, etc.
