KING GEORGE V In the death of His late Majesty King George the Fifth the British Empire, and' indeed the whole world, has sustained the most profound loss. At such times as this we are affected by a grief which transcends all other considerations, so that our sports, pastimes and mundane interests fall back, of necessity, before the realisation that the greatest Empire of all time, of which we...

LONDON TO RIGI-ITON How fifty-one veteran cars set out /Or Brighton and only three fell by the wayside. HALF-past-eight on a rather cold winter's morning. Imagine a large, low-roofed garage, lit by a somewhat ,lccasional electr;c light, and in it more than fifty motor cars, none of them less than twenty-six years old, and all of them being started up to take the road again. On every side men were...

The Arnold Motor Carriage

This is an appropriate subject for this series, with the centenary of the British Motor Industry now being celebrated; moreover, according to the Guinness Book Of Records, the Arnold's forerunner, a Benz, enjoyed the dubious distinction of being the first car whose driver was convicted of speeding in this country. This involved Mr Walter Arnold, who was accused of driving a locomotive propelled...

More on Second-hand Dinos

Sir, With reference to Mr. Edward's letter offering advice to a prospective purchaser of a 1971/72 Ferrari Dino, I would like to add some further useful advice, as although I have never actually driven a Ferrari, I did once see one go by on the road. I believe that a bumper for a Maserati can cost over £200 and a crankshaft for a Suzuki motorcycle is £50. Brillo pads are also more expensive than...

Out of the Past

At the VSCC Goodwood DTs that great enthusiast Monica Whincop, arriving as a Passenger in an Aston Martin instead of driving her 1100 HRG as she usually does, gave me a huge magazine called The Throne and dating from 1906. It was a society weekly couched in terms which would never do these days, advice about how to control and run stately homes being given a definitely Edwardian style. On the...

Star Postscript

[Last month we published Star Story, after the Editor had met Mr. Wallace Marsh, who was a Premium Pupil at the Wolverhampton Company before the First World War. Here is his postscript.] Old Teddy, the founder of Star and related cars — I call him that because that was the name by which all his workmen knew him — was married twice and altogether had 13 offspring. Apart from Dolly and Ethel, the...

To Brighton in style

The Editor takes the National Motor Museum Trust's 1903 4 1/2-litre Daimler on the RAC Commemoration Run to Brighton At a time when the future of British Leyland looked likely to be at stake, it seemed appropriate in a way to take on this year's Renault UK-sponsored Veteran Car Run from London to Brighton in the 1903 Daimler from the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, because it has definite...

Veteran - Edwardian - Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters A 30/98 with a difference A feature of recent VSCC competition events has been the surprisingly large number of 30/98 Vauxhalls taking part, which is a pleasing thing, for these cars are what vintage motoring is all about. Among these 30/98s has been the car modified before the war by the late Alan May, Sydney Allard's close friend, which Julian Ghosh has...
