Sir,
During twenty years of enjoyment from Motor Sport, I have often felt that you, Mr. Editor, sometimes sniff and push back tears of a type peculiar to K.J. Campbell, Esq., and others who can and do appreciate machinery of the Roesch Talbot ilk and therefore publish their letters in sympathy.

Having driven 250,000 miles in cars of every description, my most humble opinion is that old man Roesch knew everything about putting motoring machinery together. I am not a dwarf nor am I connected in any way with the motor industry, but my 105 Airline has been, can be, and will be mended by me when necessary. Dr. Laystall would attend to the crank and head no doubt, but I would prefer to hook them out and fit them rather than trust the work to a cretin who raises his shoulder, purses his lips and drools, “How many gallons to the mile, Sir ?”—not having heard of an S.U. feeding 3-litres and giving 22 m.p.g.

Many of your readers with big boots will promptly coo, “Yes but 75 will be top whack !” All right !—I didn’t mention speed but may I suggest that with the original Zenith as specified by Roesch himself the Talbot 105, driven properly, shows 75 per cent. of modern tinware a clean pair of heels at lights or anywhere else ? Clement Talbot knew something about pretty coach-building too. I cannot think that eighteen years ago the streamline of the Airline “was accidental”. Mr. Campbell is not singular in his attachment. There is a ” 95″ a few garages from mine and a beautiful “110” not half-a-mile away. Their owners are not tearful nor am I. We own some of the very best machinery in the world.

I am, Yours, etc.,

Brentwood. H. Edge
