On Joining a Club

At this time of year, when the appearance of the first primroses and new petrol ration books instill a desire to get out on the road, the question of whether or not to join a club presents itself to new followers of the Sport. From letters we receive, much confusion seems to exist in the minds of such persons as to which clubs will best suit individual requirements and what advantages are to be...

We hear... Richard Chichester and Major Lambton made valiant efforts to drive a 1923 American-built "Silver Ghost" Rolls-Royce home to England from Jerusalem, including flying to this country and back again with the required 7.00 by 21 Dunlops. Out in Australia John Hill is carefully rebuilding a single-seater 1925 Riley "Redwing," while at home Albert Coleman is doing likewise with an early...

We Hear Clifford Banks has acquired a 1930-31 2-litre O.M. and would like to hear of a source for spares. Actually, apart from a cracked head, since welded, his car is in excellent fettle and he has cut the four-seater body away at the rear to accommodate a petrol tank from a 2-litre Lagonda, set slab-fashion. At Cubitt's Basin some amusing old marine engines have come to light. There is a most...

We Hear F. W. Hofman, who built and raced the Bowler-Hofman (Bentley) Special, is the latest person to form a tuning establishment, in partnership with Reg. Randle. He would be interested to hear from any readers who have photographs of his old racing car. If anyone can use a rather special, vintage Model 18 Norton bicycle, able to do 90-93 m.p.h., having been converted from standard 1927 to near...

Dear Reader, A well-known firm of auctioneers withdrew all its advertising from Motor Sport because the Editor dared to question their business methods and ethics. Now this criticism was not made lightly, for if you move around in the old car world and listen to the prices asked or claimed for some pretty mundane cars you hear a lot of adverse comment about the situation. This comes from ordinary...

Letter from Germany

Quiet Sunday Dear AH, People often say "Whatever happened to the Nurburgring?" And well they might, for as far as Grand Prix racing is concerned it seems to be dead and buried. After Jackie Stewart and Niki Lauda succeeded in convincing everyone that it was no longer viable for today's Formula One cars and drivers, the Germans built a New Nurburgring, just to one side of the old mountainous 14-...

Veteran – Edwardian – Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The V.S.C.C. Silverstone Race Meeting (April 23rd) As in 1959, so in 1960, the first race meeting of the season organised by the Vintage Sports Car Club was attended by a significantly large crowd, proving irrefutably that spectators enjoy the variety to be seen in races for the older motor cars. On this occasion a special car park had been set aside for cars...

We Hear Donald Pitt has acquired the ex-Bellevue, ex-John Dugdale racing M.G. Magnette, and actually taxed it and drove it home from Monaco, Ltd., to Gloucestershire. Its thirst is about 8 m.p.g.! Gloucestershire is quite a spot. We hear of a Meadows-engined sports-bodied Gwynne, a Straker-Squire Six (yes, yet one more), a Zoller-blown f.w.d. Alvis, an early Talbot, etc., in that area, while...
