Rapier Register

The annual general meeting was held on September 18th at Overstone Solarium where the arboreal background formed a charming setting to a long line of Lagonda Rapiers and Rapiers. The Hon. Secretary (G. D. Speight, 473, Manchester Road, Sheffield), in reporting another successful year, stated that the 140th member had recently been registered, a remarkable figure considering that no more than 450 of these cars were ever made and that production ceased in 1936. The Hon. Treasurer was, able to show a substantial cash balance and, in view of this, it was decided that the Register should enter the market and purchase spares for resale to members. The meeting accorded a warm welcome to Mr. T. Ashcroft, the designer of the Rapier, who had, during the year, kindly consented to become President of the Register.
