The Bentley vs Bentley case

Very different from the case of Lord de Clifford, which I related recently, was that of Bentley Motors (1931) Ltd vs Lagonda Ltd and W Bentley, heard in front of Mr Justice Roxburgh in late 1946. It arose after Lagonda had advertisements in The Illustrated London Nets, The Tader, The Sphere Illustrated, and The Motor in 1944.

Gransden was almost washed out by bureaucracy and only saved by the diplomatic intervention of David Hodkin and Cecil Clutton, necessitating much rushing hither and thither in the latter's powerful Bugatti. These...

A 4 1/2 litre Lagonda Correction

The muddle goes on. Last month we tried to sort out the 1934 Fox and Nicholl Lagondas and while getting the cars right an error crept in on the Meadows engines.

Oldroyd has put it exactly right in a letter as follows: "No...

An important trial

75 years ago  I have been reminded that it was 75 years ago this month that an important trial took place, which is usually regarded as having set the seal to the fame of the Laurence Pomeroy-designed 20 h.p. Vauxhall, which led on to his renowned Prince Henry, 30/98 and other desirable Luton-built motor cars. This was the RAC International Touring Car Trial of 1908, which covered nearly 2,000...
