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...

"J.A.P. — The Vintage Years" by Jett Clew. 255 pp, 10 in x 7 in. (Haynes Publishing Group, Sparkford, Yeovil, Somerset. BA22 7JJ. 12.95).

A. Prestwich made myriads of different engines and to...

Books for the New Year

"The Art of Gordon Crosby" by Peter Garnier. 95 pp. 13" x 9¼". (The Hamlyn Publishing Group Ltd., Astronaut House, Feltham, Middlesex. £7.95).

The Schoolboy Who Sold Manuals to Adults

Interview Behind every classified advertisement there must be a story, but it is unusual to find that two lines in MOTOR SPORT's "back-page bible" have literally been the foundation of an Anglo-American publishing empire. That is what happened when Sutton Valence schoolboy John Haynes offered our readers Suggested Designs, Modifications and General Information on Building a 750 c.c. Special....

W. 0. Bentley and Harry Weslake
