The Ariel

In the beginning the Ariel was a fine, powerful car, in the best "Mr. Toad" style, a copy of successful continental techniques. There was little shame in that, at a time when the lead set by Mercedes with its honeycomb radiator, gate gear-change, channel-section steel chassis-frame and so on was widely adopted by other makers. In this case the manufacturer was the Ariel Motor Co, of Bournbrook,...

Early days on the road

"Early Days On The Road" by Lord Montagu and G. N. Georgano. 220 pp. 10 3/4 in. 8 1/4 in. (Michael Joseph Ltd., 52, Bedford Square, London, WC 1B 3.E.F. £7.50.) Usually the arrival for review of yet another pictorial motoring history gives rise to feelings of "Not again" . . . and some are so trite, expensive, or both these things, that I do not review them. Very different is this book based on...

At the 1954 Motor Show was a stand on which was displayed two fibreglass-bodied Kieft Climax 1100 cc sports cars, one in racing trim, one in road trim, and an ambitious flat-four air-cooled engine. The history of the engine was covered in November's issue of Motor Sport, for it was the Kieft-modified AJB with Norton cylinder heads. The reason why the cars were at the Motor Show was because the...

"Brooklands - A Pictorial History"

"Brookiands A Pictorial History" by G. N. Georgano. 1:2 pp 94" x 7". (Dalton Watson Ltd., Beaulieu Books, 76, Wardour Street, London, W1V 4AN. £5.25). By my reckoning there have already been six books about Brooklands as a Motor Course and Aerodrome, including the original "Wheels Take Wings" and the Grenville standard history. So one might question whether another is necessary. Such a thought...
