Lalique car mascots

Rene Lalique By the time Lalique opened his first factory at Combs La Ville, forty miles east of Paris, his order books were full of notable clients. The factory closed during World War 1, but with its reopening at the end of the war came worldwide recognition that his creativity and style were unique amongst fine glass designers. Lalique was always experimenting, producing vases, statues,...

Stars & Gripes

The success of Lotus at Indy led to some of the craziest most nightmarish cars ever seen at Brickyard. Joe Scalzo tells their strange tells and sympathises with those who drove them them. Тhe great Don Branson (1920-1966) was, among many wonders and eccentricities, a tortoise. He abominated having to flop on his back in a race cat Front-engine Offenhauser roadsters and upright dirt track cars...

Letters from readers

N.B. — Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and Motor Sport does not necessarily associate itself with them. — Ed. The Jackie Stewart Diary Sir, Perhaps you have read, or will have heard about the Jackie Stewart Diary in the Sunday Times. Last Sunday it concerned itself with the effects of the Jochen Rindt accident on those people intimately connected. For myself, I was nauseated...

The Further Adventures of Miss Hyacinth Hunter

Last month we published some extracts from letters written home to her family during 1917 by Miss Hyacinth Hunter, a spirited young ASC driver seconded to the Royal Arsenal at Woolwich. By courtesy of the RCT Transport Section at Aldershot we are able to follow up these extracts from letters which the driver's daughter allowed them to publish in The RCT Review. We left Miss Hunter bemoaning the...

HERE AND THERE

RE AND THERE. Varsity Notes. DISCUSSING the Inter-Varsity Trial next year, we were informed by A. C. Fairtlough, the Cambridge secretary and very much the moving spirit of the organisation, that Crowell could not be used again, as the surface suffered severely in this year's event. A new hill, called Benson Edge, near Watlington, will probably be used instead. airtlough incidently was one of the...

AC Hoard is worth the wait

Sometimes patience and diplomacy are the keys to clinching the deal You search for an AC to buy - and then three come along at once. That's what faced AC enthusiast Kevin Kivlochan, who has landed an impressive catch of the English marque after a long wait. It's a trio of cars which have sat unmolested since 1972, waiting for someone to extract them from their dusty garage and give them some TLC...

Some thoughts on Public Service Vehicles

Once a year, as regular readers must know, we depart slightly from the usual order of things and publish something not directly appertaining to fast motor cars. Thus, one Christmas we published a fairy story, and last year described a rather special bicycle ! This time Joseph Lowrey—he of the HRG and BSc—gives you, not a "Cars I Have Owned," but an "Omnibuses I Have Caught "—quite appropriate, in...

HILARITY WITH HENLY'S AT HESTON

HILARITY WITH HENLYS AT HES TON I / ENLY'S 1932 Rally was their biggest success yet— in spite of the Brooklands ban on events of this description. Undeterred by the refusal of the Brooklands authorities to allow them to hold their meeting at Weybridge, that enterprising firm proceeded to plan a gigantic Rally and Gymkhana at the Heston Airport, and actually sent out 25,000 invitations. Their...
