We Hear It seems that the prices of the older secondhand cars are dropping a bit, so less-affluent enthusiasts may get their chance this winter. Recently an A.C. Anzani 2-seater for £40, a coupé of the same breed at like price, a "14/40" 1924 Sunbeam, and several "12/50" Alvis have been in the market. A reader bought a little-used 1921 Crossley for less than £40, and Packman, now with B.O.A.C.,...

Vintage Postbag

Sunbeam Sidelines Sir, I found the article on the 3-litre Sunbeam in last month's issue most interesting and informative. The speculation as to why this advanced design was only taken to Le Mans once will, I suspect, continue for a long time. Starting with 1924, could one of the factors influencing the decision to withdraw the Le Mans entry have been the Coatalen/Bentley duel in Autocar? The...

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...

Sir, Your reader, Patrick Green, asked for information regarding the ex-Mays' Vaux hall Supercharge. After being raced successfully by S. G. Cummings and finally hitting a tree at Wetherby, it was purchased by a friend of mine. The chassis being badly out of line, I suggested buying the Kaye Don " 4.9 " isugatti chassis and installing the Vauxhall engine, complete with clutch and gearbox, but...

About the Amilcar

[In its day the Amilcar was one of the most popular of the many small French sports cars which sold readily on the British market. Quite a few people still own or crave them, so we asked Patrick Green, who owns two of the four-cylinder cars, to tell us what he has discovered about them. In the informative article which follows Green deals not only with the different versions of the four-cylinder...

We Hear F. P. Thornpson is getting good service from a 1925 Austin "Heavy Twelve-Four" and considers that the more stolid vintage cars should receive their meed of praise. He would exchange a rather rusty model T Ford for Austin spares and knows of bits and pieces for 1913 G.W.K., Overland, Chrysler, Buick and other cars. A 2-cylinder Renault in reasonable condition is apparently for disposal...

That E.R.A SOME more light is thrown on what has come to be known as the mystery of the cycle-shop E.R.A. in the form of a letter from A. Rivers-Fletcher. chairman of the E.R.A. Club. Last month FlightLieut. Harry Mundy effectively blew-up the idea that the Nottingham owner haq. a " hush-hush " E.R.A. engine, pointing out that the unit so labelled was actually designed in 1932 and never assembled...

Sir, I read with interest your reference to the " mystery " of the sports E.R.A. under " Rumblings " in the November issue. I think that perhaps the following observations may be of interest to your readers in solving the mystery : Towards the end of 1937 my brother and I, when up at the E.R.A. works, were shown the then new sports engine by the late Murray Jamieson, who not only described it to...

We Hear In spite of trouble, worry and strife, and a revival of austerity the lads and lasses continue to drive, work and generally concentrate on motor-cars. A good thing, too! George Sanders regularly uses his "30/98" Vauxhall, 0E63, for business travel, and C. R. Galla More has acquired a twin-o.h.c. 1,750-c.c. Alfa-Romeo which he is stripping down. Then W.B.G. Warham has been lucky enough to...
