Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month). A press ticket did not enable one to park very near the...

An Afternoon with an Aston Martin DB3S

The Deputy Editor airs the Midlands Motor Museum's Works Team car When I announced to a couple of Aston Martin enthusiast friends that I was to drive an Aston Martin DB3S - an ex Team car at that - they said knowledgeably: "A better car on the road than the circuit, you know." They may well be right, for the DB3S was less highly strung than some of its thoroughbred sports/racing contemporaries,...

Lloyds & Scottish Historic Car Championship

The entry for the second round of this championship at the AMOC's St. John Horsfall Silverstone meeting at the end of June was so strong that the single-seater racing cars were divided from the sports cars in two races. The single-seater race provided the dice of the day between Gerry Marshall (above, furthest from the camera) driving the Marsh Aston Martin DBR4 and Bruce Halford (No.70) in his...

Jaguar XJS H.E.

One of the products of Jaguar's recent drive to improve quality and reliability is the latest version of the XJS coupe (above), dubbed "H.E." for "high efficiency". The basic format of this highly successful sports coupe is unchanged, although major cylinder head changes on the 5.3-litre V12 engine (left) have resulted in startling improvements in fuel consumption. Below left, the XJS H.E....

Jaguar E-Type v. Mercedes-Benz 300SL

Sir, I have been a regular reader of your excellent journal for ten years and would appreciate very much your publication of the following in the readers' letters. The new Jaguar E-type is remarkable value for money, and, as you say, at nearly one-third of its competitors' prices it cannot fail to be a best seller in the G.T. class.

IMSA: Daytona 24hrs
