Looking at the London Motor Show

Looking at the London Motor Show SENSATIONS preceded the 1961 Earls Court Show. On the eve of opening day Sir Reginald Rootes sacked 8,000 workers as a result of the Acton strike and announced that his company had ceased to exist—although we were glad to see that all his stands at the Show were fully occupied. Then at the B.M.C. Press Lunch Richard Dimbleby came in for strong criticism, Mr....

Rally Review -- Rothmans Cyprus

Fun for the few No matter how tough nor how well organised a rally, in the long run the factor which determines how memorable it will have become is the quality of the competition. An event which attracts a good field of top class competitors tends to be remembered for the keen, close contest between them, whereas another which does not draw the leading drivers of the day will no doubt merit no...

Before the war the VSCC had race-meetings at Donington Park but not at Brooklands. It has since discovered this famous venue, rather late in the day, and on February 5th held its second Driving Test session within the hallowed grounds. The space available made it possible to run nine tests concurrently, so that a lot was packed into the winter afternoon. First to arrive at the "Mit and Spike" at...

FORD V8 " SPECIALS " WHEN in 1932 the Ford V8 was first introduced to the general public those among it who were motor sportsmen realised that here, indeed, was "a car that was different," one which gave town carriage comfort with super sports performance, a combination which had never been realised before at a competitive price. Early in 1933 Several slightly-modified Model 18s appeared in the...

Cars I Have Owned

J. E. Mellor of Portishead describes thirty years of motoring in which he went from tricycle to tricycle, a topical form of transport at the present time. In 1925, after a series of motor-cycles which included W. D. Douglas, Indian and N.U.T., I acquired an 1,100 c.c. twin-cylinder side-valve Morgan Blackburn three-wheeler, but my first car, a 1913 Ballot open four-seater, happened earlier, when...
