We Hear A Chiswick garage is using a 1926 7.5 Citroen for driving lessons and towing jobs. R. S. Shapley has disposed of his Type 35C Bugatti and now owns an 8th Series open Lancia "Lambda" and an R-type M.G. Lieut. Cameron acquired Boddy's Lancia "Lambda." Alas, John Gordon's G.N. chassis went for scrap while he was in Italy — this, too, like the G.N. which Boddy found, was stored in a Leeds...

This Supercharging SUPERC.HAR( ; I NG of ordinary road-cars is ever a fascinating topic, for all save the very fortunate can do with more urge beneath the throttle foot, and yet not so many wish to go to the trouble of super-tuning or hotting up and the more frequent attention that this entails. Unfortunately, you cannot buy a blower in a big cardboard box, tack it onto your engine, and sail past...

THE MODEL-N FORD The Ford Motor Co. Ltd. has been displaying a 1906 Model-N Ford touring car in dealers' showrooms about the country. We saw this car in the Streatham and Putney showrooms of Messrs. Adlards Motors Ltd., and were interested to note, that, unlike the immortal model-T, it had transverse suspension at the front only, rear suspension being by means of full-elliptic springs. The 20 h.p...

Book Reviews

"Allard -The Inside Story" by Tom Lush. 207 pp. 9+ in. x 7; in. (Motor Racing Publications, 28 Devonshire Road, London, W4 2HD. £7.95.)

We hear Norman Sharp, he of the Scott motorcycle and 3-litre Maybach-gearboxed Lagonda, has acquired Lacy's 3-litre Bentley, as Lacy is going away — genuine case of "owner going abroad." Denis Jenkinson's "basic" hack is said to be a s.v. 16 H. Norton. And writing of early motor-cycles, an A.B.C. has been found in a barn in Northumberland, an early chain-drive, 2-stroke Enfield runs around...

Adlards Motors, Ltd., once makers of Allard Specials, now on big-scale overhaul of Army vehicles. Many enthusiasts now serving with our mechanised forces must wonder what becomes of their vehicles when they are reported unfit for further service.

THE ALL-ROUND ALLARD Some time ago the Allard-Special was referred to by one of the weekly motoring papers as "not everyman's car," because of "specially light construction and general weight distributed somewhat freakishly over the back axle." That is a statement which is unfair to the production range of Allard-Specials, which, incidentally includes a four-seater tourer, one of which we often...
