A section devoted to old-car matters Still More About Mercedes A few controversial points have arisen from the article "More About Mercedes" in our issue of last December. It might have seemed that pure benzole fuel would not have been permitted at Le Mans in 1930 in the days when this race was for sports-cars much closer to those you could buy than is the case today. In fact, this was one of the...

That Car Again!

Not only is the Volkswagen one of the world's best-selling cars, it is also the one most frequently discussed in the World's Press. One of the latest references to the German beetle appears in the American journal Speed Age, which devotes 5½ pages to an article by Smith Archer under the heading of "Volkswagen -- World's Most Over-rated Car." Archer attempts to pull VW prestige to pieces but fails...

Book Reviews

"Louis Renault", by Anthony Rhodes. 235 pp. 8½ in. x 5¾ in. (Cassell and Co. Ltd., 35, Red Lion Square, London, W.C.1. 45s.)

Since then Renault...

It is at last possible to sort out these toy Citroens which are of Such interest to historians and collectors, thanks to an article in that excellent bi-lingual publication, Le Double Citroen, published quarterly by Citroen's Public Relations Department.

Cars in Books

This time, thanks to a reader, Mr. J. H. Dunn of Weybridge, we are able to quote a rather luridly written passage from "The Log of the Maken", by Ian Nicolson, which will be of interest to members of the Morgan Three-Wheeler Club.

The Mors

I was reminded of the Mors when, for no particular reason. I remembered a curious book which had appeared anonymously on the stands at a pre-First War Olympia Motor Show. It attacked in clever verse, in which makes of cars were carefully disguised, those who marketed foreign cars here disguised as home products to foil import duty. No-one ever found out who was the perpetrator of this astonishing...

Books for Christmas
