Around and About

A sporting three-wheeler Believing that there might be a market for a sporting three-wheeler, on the lines of the immortal but no-longer-produced Morgan, we are interested to hear that such a car is being built in Norfolk, and if the vicious Type-Approval regulations can be overcome, that it may go into production. The builder is well aware that he may incur the wrath of certain people in the...

Club Prizes

The Morgan Three-Wheeler Club's AGM weekend went with a swing, with at least 60 Morgans attending at Malvern. The prizes presented did not involve Concours d'Elegance, this club preferring to give them for using Morgans rather than polishing them! This ideal is reflected in an article in its current Bulletin about how to supercharge a Matchless Twin . . . The prize-list is too long to include in...

Fragments on Forgotten Makes No. 63: THE MATHIS ETTORE Bugatti and Emile Mathis have two things in common— they were both from Alsace. The beer personality has gone down in history as a man of massive build and furious temper, dark, well-dressed but in fact a shy man, who like W.O. Bentley, shunned speech-making. There was a pomposity about his cold, authoritative character; he would address his...

The Roads of the 1920s

Resuming the O.J. "diaries" of those times, we left him after he had tested, and been notably impressed with, an Alvis, in 1925. Whether it was the pleasure that driving that Alvis gave him, I do not know, but shortly afterwards Owen John was pontificating about the beauties of Britain and the fun to be had in really exploring it, which was open to anyone with a car. As for learning to drive, O.J...

Motoring as it was

To set the period we have arrived at in following the motoring of Owen John, as we have been doing in this look-back to the 1920s, we are at the point in his diary where he was praising Mr Lionel Rapson for having won the Dewar Trophy in 1923 with his puncture-proof tyres and Gordon England's A7 for having done so well in that year's 200 Mile Race at Brooklands. I have heard this O.J. described...
