'Mother Gun' hits target

Back in 1924, at Brooklands, JG Parry Thomas — whose living depended largely upon such exploits — joined jockey-cum-racer George Duller and inventor Lionel Rapson to break the world's long-distance records up to 15 hours at the helm of Rapson's 6178 cc Lanchester. Their speed after 12 hours bettered that of previous, longer records. A lap speed in excess of 100 mph was maintained, but there were...

The Extravaganza Morgan

Sir, Since the publication in last month's Motor Sport of my letter commenting on the Castrol Extravaganza it has been drawn to my attention that the Morgan on show was in fact the ex-Ronnie Horton R. R. Jackson car in its 1931 form. This car of course regularly competed at Brooklands and I would not like it inferred from my previous letter that it was anything but a genuine exhibit. The show...

Chain Chatter

by "Carrozzino" While attending the recent meeting between representatives of various motor clubs with the members of the Competitions Committee of the R.A.C., I could not help being impressed by one fact in particular. This was, that many of the problems raised by the delegates could have been cleared up if only the motor clubs were organised a little better than they are now. Numerous questions...

A Night On Three Wheels

Water-splashes are a rarity these days and cars seldom get immersed unless on flooded roads or in carwashes. I was reminded of this by a picture of a 1934 MX4 Morgan getting a good ducking in a water-splash, on the cover of the Morgan Three-Wheeler Club's Bulletin, but the photograph was taken in 1978, during the club's night trial. This event took place in much the same format this year and...

Miscellany

The latest category recognised by the VSCC is for 'Aero Cars', which means those with aero-engines in early chassis. But the term also implies a hybrid that was both car and aeroplane. There were a number built, one with a Ford V8, but the attempt to make a road and flying car ended in disaster... A Japanese enthusiast is hoping to make a replica of the racing A7 'Mrs Jo Jo' which was so...

Obituaries

We are much saddened to have to report the death, following a heart attack, of George Liston Young, who won pre-war motor cycling trophies before founding the Fiat Register in the mid-1950s. Many people will long remember the kilted Scotsman and his Coppa d'Oro Balilla Fiat. We also deeply regret to learn of the death of WJ Oldham, who as at one time a great supporter of the larger Austin cars,...

Club News

We Hear In Somerset an N.P. chassis, with Meadows engine, has come to light. On a derelict Beardmore taxi-chassis we discerned some 815 by 120 tyres, if anyone's veteran is on its rims. F/O Peter Coleby, D.F.C., weighs in with some remarks in defence of the S. F. Edge A.C.s, having owned a 1924 two-seater Anzani-engined model, which his wife drove nearly every day of the week. He refers to it as...

Vintage Postbag

The V.S.C.C. and 3-wheelers Sir, I was interested to read Mr. Boddy's article in the June issue on the classification of vintage cars and motor-cycles, but I am surprised that the splendid photograph of the rude end of an Aero Morgan two pages later did not prompt him to comment on the annoying position regarding the present classification of vintage three-wheelers. There has been controversy...
