United States of automobiles

American tour One of the side-effects of making friends with car people is that your entire calendar can end up concentrating on cars. And holidays, too: staying with friends in the USA, I fancy I attended more motoring socials than in a season at home. My host Dave George restores cars, but only prime, mainly pre-war, European stuff: on my latest visit, his capacious workshop housed 1 1/2-litre...

40 years on

Spectators engrossed in the enthralling Frank Sytner vs Nick Faure battle at the head of the GT field in the Coys' Silverstone Historic meeting might have been forgiven for overlooking the machine which finished 16th. While the Bamford GTO traded tarmac with Draper's Aston Martin prototype, Chris Mann brought an unusual red coupe home to a promising result in a field of cars a generation younger...

The price from Wylder was considerably less than VDP; I drove the Bentley when...

Trial by media Sir, DSJ's "Letter" (Motor Sport, October 1988) reeks of trial by media, and suggests sour grapes, in impugning the motives of enthusiasts. In my opinion the owners of the Multi-Union should be congratulated for saving an important historic car. A genuine and historic GP car, the most effective model of its time, is being returned to original form with almost all of its original...

Events of the Month

Goodwood Revival Now 16 seasons old, the Goodwood Revival has become a celebration of the distinctive and the distinguished. Core themes in 2013 included the 50th anniversary of Jim Clark’s first Formula 1 title, featuring a parade of cars the Scot raced or drove on the road, and a tribute to the Ford GT40, which began to take shape 50 years ago. It was GT40’s turn to be granted a one-make race...
