We remarked some time ago that the variety of unusual and sometimes exciting cars to he seen travelling from Lyndhurst towards Beaulieu must rival those that, in a past age, used the roads leading to Brooklands Track. Sure enough, driving down to the MMM in the latest Triumph GT6 for the unveiling by Lord Montagu of the Foundation Stone of his new £1 million Museum Complex, there on that winter afternoon, although the New Forest roads were virtually deserted, was a Bentley towing a trailer which carried a Ner-a-Car.

Incidentally, Lord Montagu and Lady Montagu drove the Museum Trustees to the site, respectively, in Edwardian Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and Prince Henry Vauxhall tourers (Ralph Montagu following on in the miniature petrol-engined car with his sister as passenger, which he drives very competently around the Beaulieu estate). Those companies which have supported the venture to the tune of £200,000 are: Alcan, Ford Motor Co., BP, Dunlop, Automotive Products, Castrol, Weston, Kodak, Bowater, Borg Warner, Ferodo, W.C. of C. & C.H.M., Dagenite and Elga. The Trustees are: Lord and Lady Montagu, B. F. Hubbard, R. F. Player, R. P. Brookes of GKN, Sir L. Crossman of Ford, Lord Black, P. J. Elton of Alcan and H. Starley of Champion Plugs. The new Complex is due to open early next year.
