Vintage Veerings

I can never resist talking to people who remember the old motoring days. So the other day the Alfa 6, its carburation out of sorts, was nevertheless headed along the beautiful Wye valley road, a fisherman's delight, from Builth Wells to Llswen, past the lake at Llangorse, and over the pack-horse bridge at Llangynidr, which the big car fitted snugly, to pick up the navigator for the day. Then,...

V-E-V Miscellany

For the sake of history, in my review of Rene Dreyfus' excellent book "My Two Lives", in the April issue, I wrongly referred to him racing for Harry Schell when what I intended was Laurie Schell, and Le Bergue should, of course, have been Le Begue; both were correct in the book. Incidentally, D.S.J. reminds me that Harry was Laurie Schell's elder son and his younger son, Philippe, still lives in...

VSCC Herefordshire Trial

The VSCC started its 1996 trials season with the Herefordshire Trial on February 17. A good start, the weather not too cold and the gales subsiding beforehand, for the 104 entries. Hamish Moffatt had been out fixing the "sections", with enough hills to delete any whose condition on the day made them inadvisable. This left a dozen good but comparatively easy ones, reported as enjoyable. "Royal...

Air A Mild Mystery

Having got over a phobia I had as a boy, that if I took too great an interest in aeroplanes this might detract from my enthusiasm for cars (earlier I had dreaded becoming a teenager, in the belief that then all I would require from life would be playing football, which proved far from the case), I pursued both interests without anxiety and contributed to motoring and aviation Journals. Thus,...

The Verzons

The Verzons Time flies, and on new years day it was off to 'The Verzons' near Ledbury for another of Mark Garfitt's great gatherings, with around 100 pre-1941 cars and many others of interest. The Distance award went to Antony Dacey from Hove in a 1938 Lancia Aprilia. Familiar arrivals included the 35B, 49 and 35T Bugattis of Mike Marshall, Keith Hill, and Garfitt in Sally Marsh's car. Hamish...

VSCC at Measham

VSCC at Measham Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noon-day sun. But on January 1 I / I 2th it was VSCC members out all night on the annual Measham navigation event, based in Hereford. The entry of 59, in classes for vintage sports-cars, PVT cars, and Edwardian and vintage light-cars, was I I down on last year. At the start two of the Ulster A7 drivers were dealing with lighting problems and...

VSCC at Enstone

VSCC at Enstone IF ANYONE doubts whether vintage car competitions are an all-the-yearround pastime, they should have been at bleak Enstone airfield for the VSCC Driving Tests (107 entries) on December 2. Much of the fun of watching how such tests are dealt with comes from the great variety of cars used. This time they ranged from Edmonds' jolly 1923 Morgan threewheeler with its disc wheels and...

veteran edwardian vintage

VETERAN EDWARDIAN VINTAGE A SECTION DEVOTED TO OLD CAR MATTERS A Possible Yardstick THOSE in the fortunate position of being able to afford to buy a good vintage, post-vintage thoroughbred or classic car have a difficult choice to make, as study of the many very covetable examples advertised each month in MOTOR SPORT underlines. For those in this difficult position there is a possible yardstick...

Vintage postbag

An Extension of History WE HAVE long felt that the best definitions of vintage and veteran, or if you like of historic vehicles, are those laid down by the VCC, VSCC and HCVC and generally accepted. If later dates are recognised there is a danger of the "chairs in the attic" taking on the status of genuine antique furniture. So it is slightly disturbing to discover that in the Petition submitted...

VSCC Measham Trophy Rally

(JAN. 4th/5th) This normally-annual event wasn't run last year because of the petrol-panic but was resumed last month in spite of the return of the 50 m.p.h. speed limit, which seems to indicate that the VSCC doesn't believe that this has been imposed for fuel conservation reasons, any more than we do. Whereas, before the war, it would have been possible to enliven the 200-mile night drive with...
