Bolide in a china shop

In these days of "shortest and most direct route" and, even worse, of "alternative means of transport," a long road journey is a rare treat. However, by good fortune the more usual 7 m.p.g. flying ferry wasn't to be had on a recent occasion, and much less fuel was with difficulty obtained for a spot of motoring. Without any embellishments, 300 miles in a little over 24 hours was a pleasing...

British Bugatti Register

Encouraged by Hugh Conway, David Sewell has completed a Register of Bugattis in this country, badly needed since earlier editions, based on the original Register incorporated in "The Bugatti Book", had lapsed. The new list is full of interest and no doubt many non-Bugatti owners will want it, if only the better to identify Bugattis they see in action. Brief specifications and performance figures...

The Type 38A Bugatti

Sir, As a Bugatti enthusiast of the past I have naturally been delighted at the sudden revival of interest in the Bugatti family and their activities which has brought about the very fine display of the works of Carlo, Rembrandt and Ettore Bugatti at the Royal College of Arts. At this exhibition, which apart from the cars on view, showed pictures and photos of most of the different Bugatti Types...

Road Test -- BMW 325i

World Class Leader When BMW were faced with replacing the two boxy generations of 3-series that had served from 1975 to 1990, with over 3.5 million sales, they knew their largest volume seller demanded a brand new body. Gone are the upright lines and air of quality that was the envy of the non-Mercedes manufacturing World: in came the aero generation 3-series, plastics to the fore. The result was...

Vintage postbag

"Bugatti at Brixton" Sir, I was interested in "Bugatti at Brixton" as I now own the 5-litre mentioned in the article. Several years ago I was approached by the Leicester Mercury, who asked if I would provide an open car for the starter of the Mercury walk, to flag the walkers off. I was pleased to provide my Type 44 and a picture appeared a couple of nights later. During that week I had a call...

Club news

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...

Letters from Readers

Sir, Indirectly through correspondence in Motor Sport I got a 1931 Straight Eight Lanchester sports saloon (chassis No. 8089) last autumn (in case I should never see again the Sedanca I lent to the Ministry of Aircraft Production for the duration 18 months ago). I licensed it for March and my wife and I used the month's basic on a couple of drives in one week. The car is kept at the garage of a ...
