0(44 liawd VETERAN CAR CLUB The Veteran. Car Club held its annual Rally and Hill-Climb at Tilburstow on April 9th.

RUMBLINGS

If Winter Comes . . . ALTHOUGH we should really be shaking the moth from our leather waistcoats and getting down to Monte Carlo Rally schedules, that great Grand Prix at Donington is difficult to forget and enthusiasts this autumn seem to weakly disregard the coming winter and to talk happily of the next racing season. Racing under the new Formula will be extremely interesting. New cars are...

A Morris landmark

Another great motoring landmark is about to be destroyed, along with so many others. I refer to the one-time Morris Motors production complex at Cowley, just outside Oxford. You might almost have said that the motor empire built up so industriously by William Morris, Lord Nuffield to be, would have rendered this world famous factory sacred. So it was, until last year. Then the destruction began...

Flea Fall

It's official title is 'AACA National Fall Meet, Eastern Division' — no wonder everyone simply calls it 'Hershey'. It's probably the biggest autojumble and car meet anywhere, and it's, odds-on that anyone who collects automobilia or restores cars in the US, Europe and even Japan is either here or has someone out scouting on their behalf. Held early in October at the town of Hershey, Pennsylvania...

ON SOME THINGS WE SHALL MISS

ON SOME THINGS WE SHALL MISS DEFINITFLY, we shall miss going to Earl's Court. The Motor Show, whether at Olympia, or Olympia and White City, or, as it now is, or would have been, at the newer Earl's Court building, brings annually a pleasing mix ture of experiences.
