Austin 7 Records

Sir, Thank you for the kind things you wrote about our record attempt in last month's Editorial. I thought that I should write to explain a few points. First it is the National 1000-mile record that we are waiting to be confirmed by the RAC and not the 1000 kilometres. Secondly, I do not think that Mr. Goodacre was at the start, but Pat Driscoll was, which perhaps explains the confusion. Thirdly...

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...

The Verzons

The Verzons Time flies, and on new years day it was off to 'The Verzons' near Ledbury for another of Mark Garfitt's great gatherings, with around 100 pre-1941 cars and many others of interest. The Distance award went to Antony Dacey from Hove in a 1938 Lancia Aprilia. Familiar arrivals included the 35B, 49 and 35T Bugattis of Mike Marshall, Keith Hill, and Garfitt in Sally Marsh's car. Hamish...

V-to-C miscellany

With not much of Brooklands Track left to preserve and most of the concentration now on the industrialised Museum venture in 30 acres of the 360-acre site, and with the future of the banked Montlhery Track nest Paris under threat of demolition to make way for a new road circuit — although we hear that lack of finance makes a reprieve likely — it was interesting to hear from Lindsay P Clark of...

The VSCC In Wales

The VSCC has a liking for Wales as trials territory and its traditional event, the two-day road and hill-storm fixture, took place as usual in October. Dating back to 1939, this year's "Welsh" had an entry of over 100 for the Trial, 34 for the Navigation road exercise. Dry days had made most of the hills easy and the compulsory 200-mile straight-lines run on the Saturday must have seemed tedious...

THE "ULSTER" AUSTIN SEVEN

The "Ulster" Austin Seven THE ART of producing "reproduction" furniture is a very skilled one and supports a thriving industry, so that purveyors of antiques and sale and auction personnel have to be very wide awake and on their guard not to let reproduction stuff become confused with the real thing. The same skilled art is being applied on an ever increasing scale to "reproduction" motor cars...

V to C Miscellany

The article in the September issue about Ulster A7s aroused much interest and J. P. Ashenden of Romsey who owned car Reg. No. G06302, referred to specifically in the article, from 1932 to 1934, would like to know whether it still exists and whether it would be possible to track it down. *** Julian Collins of the Malaysia and Singapore Vintage Car Register would be grateful to anyone who can...

V-E-V Miscellany

The person who owned that "unknown cyclecar" that was runner-up for first prize in this year's Cyclecar Rally from 1969 to 1975 tells us that it is a 1921 Burrell with a 1910 JAP engine having an automatic inlet valve. Lack of time, money and legislation were against its completion but Mr. Hogg says he did manage to get the ash, centre-pivot front axle onto the vehicle without having to undermine...

Vintage Postbag

"The Motor Racing of Charlie Martin" Sir, I do not read all the motor papers regularly these days but I did read your story of Charlie Martin in the August issue of MOTOR SPORT which delighted me. What a man he is, what a driver he was, what a sportsman and what a good friend, both racing and as it were "off duty"! There was one event not mentioned — it was not really important compared with...

V to C: A Matter of Identity

In the last but one issue of the now-defunct magazine The Automobile two questions of veteran-car identity were posed, which the demise of the journal prevented us from replying to. But as it may be of general interest to tie up these loose ends, may I say that in the case of the Hurtu recently acquired by motor-trader Peter Harper, from someone who had owned it since about 1956, a  3-1/2 hp dos-...
