Durability, pre- and post-war

So much is heard these days about badly-made and casually inspected cars that it was interesting, while browsing through some old motor journals, to come upon a yardstick by which the quality of pre-war cars compared to post-war products could be measured. In a 1938 copy of The Motor the late Laurence Pomeroy had an article called " 20,000 First class Miles," which was an account of his...

Continercata,_. notes and By OUR CONTINENTAL CORRESPONDENT Steinweg Killed It is a characteristic human failing, I suppose, for the layman only to draw attention to the danger of motor-racing when a fatuous driver is killed. That the 1935 season has been happily lacking in fatal accidents naturally receives no comment. Again, it is curious that the only racing drivers to be killed in Europe this...

Vintage week-end

(August 13/14th) AUGUST 13/14th was a vintage week-end for me. On the Saturday I drove to Silverstone in the comfort and luxury of a 3-litre Rover Mk. III coupe (of which, more in the next issue) to see the Austin Healey/M.G./Mini Seven Clubs' B.M.C. Sports Car Parade, and some very exciting racing. Accepting a lift across the track with John Eason-Gibson (who also favours the 3-litre Rover), I...

The Cars of Colonel Rixon Bucknall

Described to the Editor in a recent interview Colonel Rixon Bucknall is a great motoring enthusiast, as well as being an authority on ships and railways of the steam era. He presumably inherited his interest in cars from his uncles, Ernest and Leslie Bucknall, who were pioneers of the horseless carriage movement. Indeed, Leslie Bucknall took part in the 1,000-Mile Trial of 1900 and three years...
