National Prescott hill-climb

Poore makes fastest time and wins Staniland Trophy Willis and Collins break class records Prescott was blessed with fine weather on the occasion of its National Meeting on September 10th. Some of the interest was stolen by the fact that Poore had already obtained an unassailable lead in the R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship and by the poor entries, some classes attracting only one competitor....

We Hear Bernard Coulter informs us that the French motor paper L'Actualite Automobile, edited by Camille Lacome, has been revived. Coulter has a Type 40 Bugatti sans engine, into which he has fitted an Alvis "Speed Twenty" gearbox, the power unit still constituting a problem. Incidentally, Coulter broadcast reminiscences of "L'Ecusie du Lapin Blanc" at Le Mans, over the B.B.C. Free French Service...

Chauffeur's corner

In order to continue this feature, as requested by many readers, I found myself driving the BMW to Malvern, that straggling hill-top town where it is virtually impossible to park, let alone turn round and retrace one's route, unless one is a bus-driver with the right to use special bays for this purpose. I was on my way to interview a chauffeur whom I had been told about by a Ferrari owning...

73 CARS I HAVE OWNED VERY early in life I developed an interest in motoring and well rtiitnJ)(-I first experiments in this direction. In 1919, or maybe it was 1920, my father decided to enter the field of private owners. He purchased, at an exorbitant figure, an ex-W.D. Douglas Combination, upon which, at the tender age of eleven, I was wont to ride illegally whenever opportunity offered....

Cars I Have Owned

It was initiated towards the end of my schooldays in 1916 and during the...

Sir, Your remarks in "Rumblings" in the April Motor Sport led me to believe that you might be interested in some details of a more modern Morgan than the 1927 Aero" there described. I own a 1937 Matchless-engined two-seater, purchased in July last year. I paid £160 for it, being in urgent need of a car at the time and unwilling to pay East Anglia's over-inflated prices. In passing, Rover Tens...

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters A VARIETY OF ANCIENT THINGS LATE APRIL and early May gave me an interesting variety of veteran and vintage happenings to attend to. It began one Thursday when I set off in the Reliant Scimitar GTE to intercept St. John Cousins Nixon on his 1,060-mile drive round Britain, sponsored by British Leyland, in the actual 1899 single-cylinder Wolseley which ran, as No...
