A successful rally was held on August Bank Holiday Saturday, with a Concours d’Elegance, a police-led parade and gymkhana-type tests in Homefield Park for cash prizes donated by the Worthing Rotary Club. A local beauty queen rode in the 1912 Talbot of FM Wilcock which won the Concours d’Elegance. The spectators chose for the winner of a prize the driver and crew most appropriately dressed for a seaside week-end, J Smythson and passenger winning, aided by raincoats, ladies’ umbrellas and a hot-water bottle ! from PCC Moores and family, who had brought only one umbrella !  Three dead-becited and the results were based on a “Le Mans start and stop-astride-a-line” re-run.

Autoplax plastic kits

Automobile Plastics are marketing some very useful glass-reinforced Plastic Kits. These are sold in six sizes, prices ranging from 17s 6d plus postage to £15 postage free.

The range of repair and construction work that can be done with this versatile material seems to be almost unlimited. The resin base will adhere to wood or metal, which means that damaged car bodies and rotted wood can be repaired cheaply and easily. The simplicity and clarity of the instructions make the kits usable by anybody, and with labour costs as high as they are it is worth trying to do the job yourself.

A descriptive booklet can be obtained, free of charge, from Automobile Plastics Co Ltd, 62, High Street, Barnet, Herts.

Holt

Similar fibreglass kits are available from Douglas Holt Ltd, Holborn, London, or from Halfords Stores. Marketed under the name of “Cataloy” the kits comprise self-curing filler in powder and liquid forms, glass wool and ribbon. Successful tests were carried out on car bodywork and a garage drain, both were extremely successful, a rock-hard repair being effected in a matter of hours. Kits are available from 18s 6d upwards.- IG.
