Club news

750 Club They aver that all good things must come to an end, and, now that the basic petrol ration has been withdrawn, we shall get no more car-gathering 750 Club meetings until we have won the war. So that held in warm sunshine at the "Osterley" on June 7th was unusually well attended and universally made the most of. Perhaps the finest car present was that of he of the vivid shirt and...

Cars I have owned

Holland Birkett, Captain of the 750 Club, has his say in the matter of personal motor-cars. – Ed.

This scheme was hatched spontaneously in the...

A Letter from Matthew Understeeble

A knowledgeable party gives some practical advice to his friend on the relative merits of various makes of car. His views are, of course, entirely his own, but most readers will find something of interest in his counsel. Dear John, So you have decided that a vintage sports car is the right hobby for a post-war bachelor, and that on this you will spend your war bonus. I expect the 3-litre Bentley...

A little piece of Group C history

The Group C years of endurance racing through the 1980s were packed with interest for anyone who likes proper racing – rather than mere 90-minute sprints. The designs of car competing under that formula were many and varied, and the participants ranged from the great factories of Porsche, Lancia, Toyota and Jaguar to in some cases the most shoestring of lock-up-based special builders. There...

Sir, I have read with great interest, not unmixed with nostalgia, the really excellent article on l'Automobile Hispano-Suiza by Mr. Kent Karslake. My first introduction to this unique motor car was in 1933 when, as an engineering student in Paris, I had the privilege of working for one year at the Hispano-Suiza factory at Bois Colombes. In a corner of the yard there rested five or six elderly...

Club news

Northern C.C. David Gandhi's club up in the North is shaping very well. The annual subscription is 5/- and a Bulletin is published bi-monthly. Meetings are held monthly, at which film shows, debates, etc., are held. Before the middle of June membership totalled 26 persons, owning a total of 37 cars, and it is probable that many more enthusiasts have since joined. The club numbers amongst members...

Club News

WE HEAR Dr. Roland John, Frazer-Nash enthusiast, has added to his stable a 1930 20/25-h.p.

Introducing the Lancia "Lambda"

[These interesting notes on a very famous Lancia model have been compiled entirely from memory by Geoffrey Robson, who mentions some maintenance matters and gives a few tuning notes, besides very effectively introducing a classic car to hitherto unappreciative persons. – Ed.] Some considerable time ago I was almost spurred into action to defend the Lancia "Lambda" by Cecil Clutton's rather...

Cecil Clutton crystal gazes

In this extremely erudite and absorbing article Cecil Clutton does his share of gazing into the future – a habit which excellent war-news encourages. His suggested designs have their claims carefully explained, and Clutton also offers us a new basis of comparing existing sports cars. – Ed. I spent a day of my last leave stirring up my motoring file with a slide rule, with a view to ascertaining...
