To Goodwood in a Galaxie

THE B.A.R.C. explained that its Festival of Motoring at Goodwood on July 14th was intended as a day of relaxation, so I arranged to drive down in a Ford Galaxie 500 "Fodor" sedan, which, on account of space, pace and all things smoothly automatic, provides a very restful form of motoring.

Alpine Ghosts

The re-run of the 1913 Alpine Rally by the R-R EC/20 Ghost Club, sponsored by Motorola, went off with great gusto. The event was confined to 40/50 hp Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts, the entry of which numbered 40, the oldest a 1911 tourer from Australia. John Kennedy had put his 1913 tourer into full "James Radley" specification, Radley having been the top performer in this arduous trial 80 years ago...
