The roads of his day carried but a minute fraction of the present-day traffic, and the "routine slowing down" or the "emergency stop" of our day and generation were virtually unknown to him. Instead, he viewed with something...

Rally review

Canadian Shell 4,000 Rally The Canadian Shell 4,000 Rally is the World's longest event held under F.I.A. rules at the moment and the longest anyway with the demise of the Round Australia Trial.

50,000 miles with a Porsche 911

D.S.J. STARTED me on the downward slope towards becoming a Porsche fanatic and an appreciator of sophisticated fun motoring. In the late '50s, while I used a Jowett Jupiter and an Austin Healey for transport, Jenks would invariably meet me at an airport with his own much-loved Porsche 356 near whichever Grand Prix he happened to be covering and afterwards put me back on a 'plane with my cameras...

Letters from Readers

Sir, In order to vindicate my well-known and passionate love of accuracy in technical articles, I felt that I must write and point out two errors which appear in the printed version of my article describing the power unit of Mr. George Symond's Austin Seven "Grasshopper." It may be that the rush to get your January issue out had occasioned these. In the first place, the blower is obviously not...
