“First Thursday” at the Phoenix

On April 5th, the V.S.C.C.’s “First Thursday” meeting at the Phoenix Hotel, Hartley Wintney, was very well attended, perhaps because it was the first in the second licensing quarter. One of the more interesting cars present was a 1930 M.G. Six Tiger with racing-type four-seater body, oil tank between the front dumbirons, fuel tank beneath the back seat and a beautifully turned out engine with twin horizontal carburetters. It wasn’t a real M.G., said someone, because its sidelamps weren’t octagonal! Other cars present included another M.G. Six (a saloon), two Alfa-Romeos, two vintage Humbers, a Brooklands Riley Nine, a Phantom II Rolls-Royce, and many other vintage specimens, while the Club Secretary, T. W. Carson, was present in his 30/98 Vauxhall.

Vintage-Car Snob Value

In the course of a talk entitled “Those Dear Little Boys” which the Hon. Arthur Gore gave in the B.B.C. Home Service on April 10th, he referred to the fact that at his private school in the nineteen-twenties boys whose parents had Rolls-Royce or Daimler cars were a social success, but this did not apply to him as his parents had a “cheap American car called an Overland.”

A New Longbridge Model?

In reporting this year’s R.A.C. Rally a Birmingham evening paper referred to the winning car as an Austin Martini!
