1963 & '65: Jim Clark

Back in Australia in early 1966, when I was 13 and the world seemed to go on forever, the talk among my buddies was of The Beatles and Vietnam. For me, though, the long summer holidays (December through to late February) brought another focus: midday on sun-filled Saturdays – and therefore hopefully allowing for the time difference to New Zealand – I’d spend hours ‘tuning’ my trannie to find news...

Rover Refinement

It is fashionable these days to assess motor cars used by motoring writers at mileages of 12,000 and 24,000—don't ask me why. The Editorial Rover 2000TC has been reported on at various times; not that there was much to report, because it had proved one of the most dependable cars I have ever experienced.

The Lancia Gamma 2500 Coupé

The Lancia Gamma 2500 Coupe A Likeable Car, in the Lancia Tradition AFTER driving Beta and Delta saloons carrying the famous Lancia badge I have remarked that, good or otherwise as they may be, they are not, in my opinion, true Lancias.
