• INSURANCE SUFFERER
I was interested, when reading your excellent journal recently, to note that I have fellow insurance company sufferers.
I have been driving for fifteen years in the fields and five years on the roads and to date I have never scratched a car or made any claim on my many insurance brokers.
Having taken the driving test in a 1750 Alfa Romeo, I exchanged it for a 4,1,-litre Invicta. It soon became evident, when ringing the insurance company to inform them of the change, that they hadn’t the least idea what an Invicta was. What a fool I was to be bone honest; after all the Meadows engine can be nicely geared down for commercial purposes.
I always understood that a man of nineteen was at his most alert, and yet at that tender age, and with a 54-stone body, I was—to quote—” Incapable of controlling ” a Viz Lagonda.
We must start a battle against this sort of treatment. Insurance companies are the only people who make one want to feel old. At the ripe age of 6o I shall buy a 1)134 G.T. G.T., or whatever it is, and prang it into every ditch and tree I can see! At the moment I’m insured in a 30/98 Vauxhall and an XKLio, and I believe I’m meant to be lethal in both.
