A.C. Stand 135 There is no change here except that prices have risen, the saloon now costing £1,059 and the Sports Tourer, with Buckland body, £1,098. The drophead coupe model is discontinued.

The New 2.4-Litre Healey

Donald Healey, who was once so closely associated with fast Triumphs, and who was a great Monte Carlo Rally exponent, has decided to manufacture a car of his own. In the 2.4-litre Healey he would seem to have "got something." Lots of people regret the passing of the vintage-type car and do not quite know what will take its place.

The New TD M.G. Midget

At a cocktail party at Nuffield House, Piccadilly, on January 17th, the new TD M.G. Midget was released.

Of the two TD M.G.s which essayed this journey, one was driven by Ian Appleyard and Louis Klemantaski, the other by Gordon...

My 1½-litre Le Mans Singer had a narrow escape a few weeks back. I put the car in a friend's public garage to...

BUMBLINGS

A Great Campaign since the German teams ran in this country for the first time, feeling has been running high that this country should put a team of Formula cars into action. Suggestions as to how best this could be accomplished have appeared in print, and when the new Formula, now operative, was announced E.R.A. actually decided to produce a 2i-litre car for 1938 Formula races. The new E.R.A....

VARIETY - II

VARIETY II The Editor Continues to Sample a Diversity of Motor-Cars FIRST of all we continued to pile up the miles in the Villiers-engihed 197-e.e. Bond three-wlweler. Certain bothers intruded, it is true, yet, as each one occurred, it was dealt with, and we went on using the little car in traffic, on the open road (why " open " ?) and for all manner of errands with great satisfaction.
