“Compression ratio 9 to 1. Suspension: front, independent; rear, semi-elliptic..” –  Thompson-Reid Ltd. of Belfast in an advertisement for the S-type Austin Mini-Cooper. (Our italics.)

“Just how long Rolls-Royce can maintain their supremacy is a matter of some doubt. Craftsmen responsible for the specially built coachwork of the past are becoming increasingly difficult to replace, and the time must be near when modernisation of their engineering approach will become essential.” – J.
