Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

One-Off Bugatti reborn

Made a long haul in the summer sun the other day to that shrine of Bugatti contentment, Ivan Dutton's workshop at picturesque Ickford near Oxford, being much frustrated by slow traffic. The object of the visit was to see again a one-off Bugatti, which I had known years previously in the earlier stages of my intense, if unexplained, interest in cars. It had come about then, this earlier visit to...

A section devoted to old-car matters On with the census The colleague who thought up and conducted the recently concluded Moror Sport Readers' Survey apparently cannot have too much of this sort of thing, for, having buttoned up his part of the affair, he handed to me 186 forms that dealt, he said, with vintage cars, suggesting that I might like to analyse them in this section. The census disease...

Club News

We Hear Birkett motors in what appears to be normal 1928 Austin Seven "Chummy," except for outsize rear tyres, until the bonnet is opened, when a downdraught carburetter, four-branch exhaust manifold and Scintilla Vertex magneto are revealed; the car also has a close-ratio four-speed gearbox. Leslie Seyd has restored to original order the 1912 "12/15" Mors tourer once owned by Shakspeare. The...

A section devoted to old-car matters INTEREST in vintage cars is spreading rapidly in Belgium. Stopping at a Shell garage just outside Charleroi recently, we met George Rapailde and his wife, who proudly showed us their Amilcar, which they described as a Type CGS, being a 1925 s.v. Gran Sport in a very nice rebuilt condition. Purchased last year in Belgium they overhauled it and have already...

V-to-C Miscellany

The undertaking of reproducing a complete set of Bugantics, the magazine of the Bugatti OC, is progressing, and having seen an example of a facsimile of Vol 8, No 1 , for January 1939, I can vouch for the fact that you could not tell it from the original. Encouragingly, the Rover 8 Register's latest list of the surviving examples of these rather endearing little flat-twin aircooled cars, which...

V-to-C Miscellany

T he Jowett CC will have its 30th National Rally at Woburn Abbey from May 26/29 the Club's news is set out in its magazine Joweteer, edited by Alan Brierley. December's issue contains an interesting Piece about how weight was saved in the construction of the earlier flat-twin lowetts, only to be thrown away when 4WB were thought necessary, when the revised rear axle weighed more than the engine....

Sorting out the Sunbeams

What happened to the 1924 Grand Prix Team? NO ONE MAKE of British car was as prominent as Sunbeam in the vintage racing years, or, for that matter, before the Kaiser War. In particular the 1924 2-litre supercharged team cars were notable, because it was only misfortune that cost them victory in the French GP of that year, which would have been Sunbeam's second consecutive success in this race....
