A WELSH TUNING ESTABLISHMENT
William Lambert, late of Finchley Road, whose admirable re con s t met i(ii work on a 1924 s.v. Aston-Martin lip.s been described at length in these pages, has recently joined. Bern’s Motors, of Mold, North Wales. Berm is hints( 11 a gr:at enthusiast for Bugatti and Austin ears and his competition Austin Seven, devised from a 1924 Chummy, has been
described in MOTOR Sroler. Lambert travelled to his new abode in his 1916 Morris tourer, which does 45 m.p.h. in second and 60 m.p.h. in top gear, the old Hotchkiss-built engine having twin S.U. carburetters. One must sympathise with this opening of what would have been about the only enthusiasts’ haven in the Chester area, coinciding with the outbreak of war. Nevertheless, one feels that Lambert will be appreciated there by car-owner.; in general and, indeed, by anyone who requires high-class engineering work undertaken, of no matter what descrip
tion. Lambert ha installed his own lathe and tools.
