Sir,

As a regular reader of your periodical for the last 20 years may I trespass on your space for the first time to give you some impressions of the current Detroit passenger cars ?

At present I own and drive a 1955 41/2-litre Chrysler Plymouth ; my previous machine was a VW. Previously I owned three Chevrolets in a row, in East Africa. I was brought up pre-war on : 1933 MG J2, 1935 Aston Martin, 1936 SS100, 1931 41/2 Blower Bentley, 1932 sloping rad Lagonda, 1938 Fraser.Nash-BMW, 1939 Jensen and then Railton.

Why do I now stick to the Detroit Dragons ?

(a) Mechanical silence from 0-100 mph ; (b) Vivid, effortless acceleration ; (c) Unfailing reliability and low maintenance costs over a large mileage ; (d) Advanced styling and mechanical specification ; (e) Toughness and longlevity under extreme conditions ; (f) Roominess for passengers and their luggage, or luxurious comfort if you prefer it.

Cornering ? Fix HD Shockers all round, and HD coil springs up front and feel the difference.

When British motor manufacturers contrive to build a car that will hang together like a yank, or the continental boys manage to smother the general racket set up by their power units, then perhaps I will desert the chromium-plated Bulldozers from Detroit for something better ; they are not perfect.

I am, Yours, etc.,

JFC Wellings, Chagford.
