We Hear It seems that the prices of the older secondhand cars are dropping a bit, so less-affluent enthusiasts may get their chance this winter. Recently an A.C. Anzani 2-seater for £40, a coupé of the same breed at like price, a "14/40" 1924 Sunbeam, and several "12/50" Alvis have been in the market. A reader bought a little-used 1921 Crossley for less than £40, and Packman, now with B.O.A.C.,...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters VSCC at Prescott, August 11th: The Vintage SCC was lucky with the weather for its once-a-year hill-climb at the Bugatti OC course at Prescott, the meeting being run off without incident before a slightly smaller "gate" than last year. Once again Alan Cottam's A-type fue-injection, de Dion-axled Connaught made FTD, although it did not better its own VSCC...

Long before that, circa 1912, F. Henry Royce, yet to be knighted, had evolved his famous, or notorious, bumping-rig, for stressing Rolls-Royce chassis to extremes.
