Sir I have been very interested in the recent correspondence which has appeared in your columns with regard to the H.R.G. It seems to me that this is a very overrated car. After all, the M.G. was doing 15 years ago what the H.R.G. is doing now. The 1,100-c.c. L- and K-type M.G.s were genuine 80-m.p.h. vehicles but the current H.R.G. 1,100 c.c. seems to have a 75 m.p.h. maximum. Fifteen years...

TWO B.M.C. PRODUCTS THE WOLSELEY 61110 and the M.G. MAGNETTE Mk. IV AGREAT many Continental cars are tested by MOTOR SPORT because our readers are interested in individual cars but we have no desire to ignore British products and I was glad when two improved B.M.C. cars came along for appraisal. These were the Wolseley 6/no with manual gear-change and the M.G. Magnette Mk. IV. The big Wolseley,...

Cars I Have Owned

by W. Bancroft of Renfrewshire When a near neighbour acquired a self-propelled vehicle my interest was aroused and has remained with me ever since. To get my neighbour's vehicle ready for a run meant filling water tanks, filling paraffin tank, greasing steering and transmission and then lying down and lighting up the boiler. As this was rather a dirty job and I was a keen youngster it was my job...

Type Approval Your gloomy views on the building of specials are, I believe, justified only if the builder is starting from scratch, that is constructing an entirely new chassis, suspension, steering lay-out and the like. When the regulations* to which you refer were in draft the Historic Vehicles Committee did not give their minds to specials as such. We were however worried about another aspect...

Cars I have owned

By Brian Carson Looking backwards across the span of six and thirty years, I can see the ghosts of many of the old conveyances that I have owned since those halcyon days of motoring that are now affectionately called the "Vintage" era. Amongst the hosts of new designs that appeared during the early nineteen-twenties were a few that failed to capture the imagination of the public merely because...

Veteran to classic

The roads of the 1920s In continuing to look at the diaries of Owen John — as far as the Autumn of 1925 — I think I may have discovered why this prolific motoring writer chose to have a closed 14/65hp Rover when he eventually discarded his faithful open touring Crossley. After delivering a lecture to the Oxford University MC (which seemed to have alarmed him as an old Cambridge man), OJ went out...
