Historic scene with... Gordon Cruickshank

Astons in the blood A trip to Surrey uncovers a cache of Britain's finest, and a man with a fund of knowledge I’ve read about Aston expert Richard Williams over the years but hadn’t met him until a motoring friend took me along to the eponymous firm he runs in Cobham, tactfully camouflaged behind suburban bungalows. R S Williams has been tuning, restoring and improving Astons since the 1960s, but...

Lotus 20/22

With Formula Junior regaining popularity, now’s the time to invest in one of Colin Chapman’s creations. Which type will you go for?By Richard Heseltine It always was a catchy title. Fifty years young, Formula Junior is undergoing something of a renaissance, an under-the-radar second – or possibly third – coming with packed grids attracting newbies and old hands alike to entry-level historic...

MORE FRONTENAC [Last month H. L. Biggs gave some technical details of Frontenac Fords. A correspondent to " N.A.R.N.," the American Midget Car Racing Weekly, recently enquired whether early racing Chevrolets were" revamped" Model-T Fords or " Special " racing cars. In view of Biggs's article the reply may be of interest, and we accordingly reprint it from the January 22nd issue of the " National...

Monkhouse (Bugatti) Makes F.T.D. at Elstree

Huge entry for V.S.C.C. event. Some very good times. Abecassis's Alta is fastest sports car. The Vintage S.C.C. speed trials at Elstree on Easter Monday over a 1/4-mile of slightly uphill aerodrome runway produced a "Brooklands" entry and attendance. The start was very late, electrical timing had to be abandoned for stop-watch, and the second runs were conducted in a very haphazard manner - one...

Ford cars and service.

Sir, Having read the letters of Mr. English, Mr. McGhee and Mr. Kearns, I can only conclude that they have been most unfortunate in the service they have received from their Ford motor cars, and apparently also from certain agents. I have been driving motor cars of all sorts for well over 30 years, and just over twelve months ago I decided to buy a Ford Zephyr after consulting many members of my...

The Ford V8

Sir, Your "Ford at Brooklands" article, and especially the reference to V8 coupés being used for trials and rallies, reminded me of the car which my brother and I bought on January 3rd, 1939 from Dennis Poore, then a salesman at Atalanta Cars at Staines but ten years later British Hill Climb Champion, for £20 10s. Our car was a 1933 Ford V8 drophead coupe complete with dickey seat where the...

Mann of the decade

His career was confined to the 1960s but what an era it was, with Alan Mann acting as a lynchpin in Ford’s competition drive By Richard Heseltine It holds true in broad outline that the closer you get to the truth, the more the legend evaporates. Racer-turned-entrant Alan Mann has just skewered an eminent figure of ’60s motor sport, outlining how he was caught with his fingers in the corporate...

A Model-A register

Sir, I wish to trace the owners of all model AF Ford motor vehicles (circa 1927-31) including models A, B and BB, with the idea of forming a register, to further the interest in these rather rare vehicles. If you could assist me in any way I would be very much obliged (I am not connected with the Motor Trade). G. H. Langton. 111, Prince Albert Road, Eastney, Portsmouth, Hants.

Ford and motoring sport

A significant facet of the modern competition world is the part that Ford seems likely to play in almost every field of motoring sport in the near future. In America and Britain, Ford motor-cars (or should I write motoring cars?) are being built with many aspects of motoring sport in mind. This is right and proper, because although the name of Ford is associated primarily with providing the...
