He explained that his grandfather, having founded a company making weldless tubing at the time of the cycling boom in the 1880s, at Aston in Birmingham, which with others became Tubes Ltd and later the great TI organisation,...

By the Brighton bush telegraph

Members of the press travelled down in a 1932 33-seater ex-Paris Renault 'bus, provided for the occasion by Adams Bristow Ltd. It has a six-cylinder engine giving 67 b. h.p. at the expense of some eight or nine m.p.g.–fortunately National Benzole sponsor the Run–and does 25 m.p.h. * * * In the absence of Miss Hutton-Stott's 1904 Lanchester, Ronald Barker went...

Vintage tailpiece

Steam at Bishop's Castle (August 31st) I like to go to at least one traction-engine rally and one flying display a year, if the opportunity arises. This is good for one's sense of proportion, apart from the obvious contrast between such events. This year it came to the late summer Bank Holiday and I'd not done either, when I remembered that the County of Salop Steam Engine Society's Rally...

THIS year's Historic Commercial Vehicle Club Brighton Run had a record entry and was a great success, the weather being delightful, the traffic comparatively light once Redhill was left behind and National Benzole, acting, as usual, as generous sponsors. I was able to travel the route, by courtesy of Lord Montagu (who was again driving his 1922 Maxwell charabanc in which I rode last year) in the...

The Allure of Pebble Beach

In August, US collectors head for The Beach; Jonathan Stein went too According to John Steinbeck, ''Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise. . . a dream." The same could be said about nearby Pebble Beach, especially during the third week in August every summer. The stink comes from unburned fuel, oil, fresh paint and leather, the grating comes from starters and...

Veteran - Edwardian - Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters The VSCC at Madresfield (Sept. 3rd) What a pleasant event the annual driving test meeting at Madresfield is! Competitors and spectators park on the wide grass verges flanking the long drive leading to Lord Beauchamp's house and during the afternoon leisurely manoeuvres take place which try to a mild extent the prowess of machinery and drivers. It is a pity...

World Sportscar Championship: Dijon 480-kms

That magic ingredient What seemed like a formality for the Sauber Mercedes team at Dijon on May 21, and therefore a contest for third place, turned into a splendid success for an underdog Porsche, a Reinhold Joest 962C driven by Bob Wollek and Frank Jelinski. It might seem rather far-fetched to describe a Joest Porsche as an underdog, but it had been almost two years since a product of Weissach...

The famous ex-Joyce/Aked racing AC, so well known in the 1920s, was due to appear at the AC works near the Track in December, as its owner, R Smith, after much toil, has got it running again, and it keeps his HE company. The previous owner was Robbie Hewitt, who found it long after Aked had ceased to use it for sand racing, and it put up historic speeds when driven by J A Joyce. The VSCC of...
