Vintage miscellany

A 1915 Trumbull chassis has turned up in Warwickshire and details are requested of what kind of body it had. Data is also sought concerning the ex-Bruce Halford Riley T.T. Sports Sprite, AVC 17, thought to be a 1936 or '37 works team-car. During August an exhibition will be held at Palace House, Beaulieu, of the works of Charles Sykes, lent by his daughter. Mr. Sykes was the sculptor of the...

V-E-V miscellany

— Arising from the photograph we published in the December 1983 issue, of the blower 4 1/2-litre Bentley bought new by the late T.G. Moore when he was the owner of Motor Sport, Mr A. Fielding writes to say that he owned this car up to 1958, when he sold it to Mr Carter in the States, not in 1952 as the previous correspondent thought. When he acquired the Bentley in 1955 it was very good...

The English Model T Ford

A Century of the Model T in BritainBy Martin Riley, Bruce Lilleker and Neil Tuckett This one-model book about one of the most famous cars is a truly remarkable and welcome account of the Model T Ford sold here from 1908 to 1926, not forgetting its forebears of 1903-1908. Taking six years to compile, the information included is quite phenomenal. Technical advances both major and minute are...

"Ford"

By Booton Herndon. 408 pp. 9 in. x 5 3/4 in. (Cassell & Co. Ltd., 35 Red Lion Square, London, WC1. £3.00) There have been a great many books about Henry Ford and Ford cars. This one breaks new ground by being "an unconventional biography of the two Henry Fords", to quote its dust jacket. Because it deals with the personality, particularly, of Henry Ford II, or "Mister Ford", the very...

Sideslips

by "Baladeur "Baladeur" hides the identity of one of our most notable motoring historians and veteran car enthusiasts. So we are very pleased that he is now able to resume those "Sideslips" which so many people found absorbing before the war. — Ed. I remember walking one winter's day about 30 years ago along a rather gloomy London street in the neighbourhood, unless I am mistaken, of Paddington...

Forward thinker

Back in 1903 Walter Christie was a determined pioneer of front-wheel-drive — which he called 'direct action'. But his real legacy lies elsewhere. By Phil Llewellin There is, believe it or not, a direct link between grand prix racing's biggest-ever engine, a 19th-century battleship and what most military historians agree to be WWII's best all-round tank. The connection is a brave, innovative...

"Automobile Design: Great Designers And Their Work."

"Automobile Design: Great Designers And Their Work." Edited by Ronald Barker and Anthony Harding. 374 pp. 10 in. x 6 1/4 in. (David & Charles, South Devon House, Newton Abbot, Devon. £4 4s.) At first this weighty tome seems to cover an odd selection of designers, because engineers of the calibre of Sir Henry Royce, Laurence Pomeroy, Georges Roesch, Louis Coatalen, Ernest Henry, Ettore Bugatti...

Out of The Past

In turning out old papers I have come upon a forgotten manuscript, about the Cedar Tree tea-rooms in Ripley. The place was discovered in 1918 by two people seeking a fresh way of life. The husband, subject to fevers from serving in the Boer War, had worked on aeroplanes during the 1914/18 conflict, being unfit for active service, and was able to design and build small yachts. Seeking a post-war...

Modern Times

Now the new Formula One season is properly up and running, the fortnightly rhythm of real racing is gradually overwhelming the political issues that filled so many column inches during the winter. But the subtexts will still be there: Bernie Ecclestone remains determined to amend the financial structure of Formula One, with or without the participation of traditional City institutions, and...
