Such a book is "Lost Causes of Motoring," the...

Around and About

Mundy's Marvel Since the days of the 3.8 Mk. IIs, Jaguar saloons have grown into rather more "luxury" than "sporting" carriages: the performance is there still, but the cars are somewhat softer in character and often cushioned by automatic transmission. That is particularly true of the XJ12, which has potentially formidable saloon-car performance blunted by its compulsory Borg-Warner Model 12...

MCC trials in the vintage years

As the MCC Edinburgh Trial took place last October and as I have dealt previously with the vintage Land's End and Exeter trials (Motor Sport, April 1990 and February 1991 respectively), it seems time to do the same for the London-Edinburgh trial of this old and much-respected club, which was formed as long ago as 1901. The "Edinburgh" was the first long-distance event the MCC organised, back in...

A Pressman's Holiday. IHAVE often thought how interesting it would be to have a register of all the old sports and racing cars in England with a history behind them. London would probably be the richest hunting ground and there must be several hunft.ed stowed away in mews and garages within ten mile 7 of Charing Cross. Last month I was told that the two Brescia Bugattis which Raymond Mays used to...

Luxury and high-performance from 1-1/2- litres

The Remarkable Borgward Isabella Coupé There is a growing demand for a car which, although luxuriously appointed and pleasing to look upon, has an engine in keeping with the  requirements of those owners who do not enjoy paying big bills for fuel which an unimaginative government taxes, in this country, at 2s. 6d. per gallon. When such requirements are met in an economical 1-1/2-litre car which,...

I am indebted to V.S.C.C. member Malcolm Jeal, who runs an Austin Seven Chummy, for an introduction to Mr. G. E. Hester, who was Works Manager of the Ogston Motor Company (5901) Ltd., which made Deemster cars,...
