"The Amazing Bugattis" Exhibition

"The Amazing Bugattis" Exhibition, thought up by Hugh Conway, CBE, and put on very tastefully indeed at the Royal College of Arts in London, is now over. But its impact will be felt for a long time to come. Never before, even when they were in production, can Bugatti cars have achieved greater publicity. The Bugatti OC had its Reception and Viewing of this remarkable Exhibition on October 20th,...

Ecurie Bertelli

First there was Ecurie Oppidans, then Morntane Engineering, and now Ecurie Bertelli, the latter being the name by which this long running concern dealing exclusively in pre-war Aston Martins is now known.

On selling sports-cars

Lots of important people who were in the Motor Industry—the third largest pre-war industry in this country— before the war, will return to it when peace breaks out. So, however busy they are just now and no matter how...

Aston Martin of New Port Pagnell

Motor Sport visits the home of a great British sporting marque, recently saved from extinction There were times last year when the demise of one of the most famous sporting car names, Aston Martin, looked not just possible, but a fait accompli.

Vintage Postbag - Early singers

What a treat to see a picture of a Singer in Motor Sport and of one of the almost unknown I.o.M. racers intended for the 1914 Light Car TT at that. I am currently researching early Singer history and have only just "discovered" these cars. Two were reported as having been sold by April 1915, one to Mr. Bolton, the other to Mr. J. P.

75th Anniversary

While I was busy thinking of an excuse to bring together and write about an interesting collection of Aston Martins, a certain date passed me by without my thinking it in the least significant. That date was Friday March 16th, and it wasn't until nearly a week later that Alan Archer, Chairman of the Aston Martin Owners Club, pointed out that it had been the 75th anniversary of the first...
