That A.C. Question

Although quite a few vintage A.C. cars are still in service, not one of their presumably-enthusiastic owners rose to the bait cast by the Editor in the November issue of Motor Sport, when he criticised certain features of S. F. Edge's dogmas, nor did Mr. Henderson, of A.C. Cars, Ltd., accept the challenge. However, it may be stated that, although we queried whether placing the gearbox in unit...

Rare Encounters

There is no doubt that on the quieter, less-congested roads that existed in this country in the 1920s many unusual cars were still in use, cars which would raise the eyebrows of today's vintage enthusiasts. What was taken for granted then would have seemed exciting today. Lots of pre-war vehicles continued to serve their faithful owners or plied for hire, some with quite large engines, to which...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

Out of the past

Out of the past In the 1920s motor racing at Brooklands and private flying were flourishing, and addicts who found the Weybridge Motor Course too far away to visit would probably aim for the Shelsley Walsh hillclimb if they were living in the Midlands. If both these exciting venues were out of reach they might well spend a Bank Holiday watching aeroplane racing. Thus over the Easter holiday of...

British Quality Cars A very interesting feature of this year's release of new models is the attention now being paid to really expensive chassis, which indicates that the automobile designer, at any rate, considers that wealth is returning to this island. Time was when a luxury car had a very staid performance, but the coming of the 6-Hitre six-cylinder Bentley changed all that. The 1937 luxury...

Through the "Gloucester" Trial in an Allard

The thirtieth version of the N.W. London M.C.'s classic "Gloucester" Trial was contested on December 4th and attracted 73 entries and 61 starters. We were able to avail ourselves of the navigator's seat in one of the twelve Allards entered — E. N. Frost's mildly-modified, slightly shortened Mercury-engined car, which recently had won the Hunt Trophy and which weighs about 22 cwt., with a...

A section devoted to old-car matters VSCC Driving Tests, Silverstone (December 4th) Quite why the Vintage SCC chooses to inflict driving tests at bleak Silverstone on its members in December no-one rightly knows. However, there is a snatch of tradition in this, because, before it required annual repairs, winter record attacks were made at Brooklands and the Southport sand-racing season opened in...
