The Triumph Southern Cross

Sir, In the February issue of Motor Sport, under the heading of "Vintage Postbag", there is a letter from Mr. S. Basham, in which he denigrates the Triumph Southern Cross. Now I would be the first to agree that they were in the class of more sedate sports cars, but they did not lack "guts". I bought mine in 1946, and kept it for a couple of years, during which time it gave me excellent service. I...

Down Under

Down Under -1-let no one think that the VSCC of Australia is inactive not that any British participants i the rallies there could ever harbour such a thought. Further to endorse the view that the Australian club functions very much as the UK version of the VSCC, consider its recent two-day Alex Bryce Rally. It was run over undulating, vacant roads, and you can imagine what that implies, given...

Fair Play

Sir, In response to Mr Morris's letter about overtaking in Formula One, I would say that more than one factor is responsible for 'processional' racing today. Due to the speed of the cars, the duration of the straights is no more than a second or two, thus giving no time to overtake. Also, as the top engine manufacturers approach the limit of power available, and the aerodynamics of the cars...

Little wonder

The definitive pre-war sports car? The MG J2 certainly everything going for it When in the late summer of 1932 helmsmen William Morris and Cecil Kimber dropped the D-type from their fledgling MG Car Company's bewildering range of cars and replaced it with the J2, they quite unwittingly created a milestone in the history of British sports cars. Quite simply the J2, along with its four-seater...

Matters of moment

Leyland's museum at Donington For far too long the very large accumulation of historic vehicles amassed by the various manufacturers who were amalgamated under the BMC banner and which have consequently been inherited by British Leyland has been sadly dispersed, in storage, on loan to a fortunate few, or scattered in various museurns—at one time it seemed that the sole-surviving Leyland Eight had...

Letters from Readers

M.G.s - A COMPARISON Sir, All of us can imagine a child's feelings on the Eve of Christmas. There are lots of guesses. What kind of Christmas presents will there be ? Then suppose that this child does not have any presents or that instead of presents it gets a thorough hiding. This comparison is quite suitable when describing the cold douche which every believing M.G. enthusiast must have got...
