The V.S.C.C. September “Phoenix” evening was very well supported. Admittedly, members of the “Old Car Club” had got in first, two scruffy sports Singer Nines, a p.v. Riley Nine saloon, an SSI and a horrid pseudo-sports Austin 7 with Ruby grille lining the forefront of the well-known Hartley Wintney hostelry. No matter. Later, good vintage and p.v.t. cars turned up in force, including two 30/98 Vauxhalls, several open 3-litre Bentleys, a lofty Lanchester 21 limousine that was labelled OX, an H.R.G., a “boy’s racer” Rapier, the usual Austin 7 and Frazer Nash contingent, three ” real ” Morgans with vee-twin engines and a square-rigged Fiat 509 2-seater. Betty Haig was there in her latest acquisition, a 1.6-litre Alfa Romeo Giulia Spyder.—W.B.
