Flintstone effect

In 1946, through the generosity of Mr Forrest Lycett and the added support of Cecil Clutton I was able to acquire a 1913-14 long-wheelbase Hispano-Suiza, if I went and collected it from a distant aerodrome at which it was available. Lycett had, I believe, found it at the Phoenix Green Garage, and Hartley Wintney and Mr McKenzie rebuilt it for him with a three-seater body, bringing the weight up...

The story of the teddy-bear that never looked other than straight...

For the Outer Circuit Sometimes you may visit Brooklands and learn nothing of interest, whereas another visit will reveal something very unexpected. Running out of fuel on the Railway Straight last month E. W. W. Pacey had the misfortune to do likewise and the imposing singleseater Pacey-Hassan-Special duly stopped just behind our Frazer-Nash. Thus it came about that we knew, before a lot of...

Belonging to a Past Decade Seaman's old Delage has certainly caught the racing-public's imagination and it again more than gave the E.R.A. drivers a run for their money at Donington, on the occasion of the 200-Mile Race. For that event Seaman made use of his second engine, which is a few c.c. larger than the unit he was running earlier this year. The Delage, by the way, is the car which Senechal...

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters The Second V.S.C.C. Silverstone The Vintage S.C.C. held its second Silverstone Race Meeting of the year on June 15th. It could be termed "sun-top Silverstone" and in spite of exciting racing was completed without mishap. Racing opened with a 5-lap Handicap in which Freeman's 1951 Mille Miglia Aston Martin came through on the last lap to win at 69.95 m.p.h....

We Hear F. P. Thornpson is getting good service from a 1925 Austin "Heavy Twelve-Four" and considers that the more stolid vintage cars should receive their meed of praise. He would exchange a rather rusty model T Ford for Austin spares and knows of bits and pieces for 1913 G.W.K., Overland, Chrysler, Buick and other cars. A 2-cylinder Renault in reasonable condition is apparently for disposal...

ULiTI I 11 1 Assorted Rallies The British Clerk of the Weather certainly did his very worst from John o' Groats in this year's Monte Carlo event, and it remains to see what we are going to have for the R.A.C. event, for which there are 317 entries. In some ways I think this latter event is more trying than its Continental counterpart, since the distance between the checks is generally too short...
