149 Cars

(In this interesting contribution, G. R. N. Minchin, at our request, describes some of his 149 personal motor-vehicles. - Ed. My present two cars are my 148th and 149th, and let me say that if anyone should think this is a record, it is not, as I know someone who has had 212! In my opinion every real motorist should start with motor-cycles and thereby graduate to cars. A sweeping statement...

Book Reviews

"GRAND PRIX RACING FACTS AND FIGURES," by George Monkhouse. (238 pp., 42s. Foulis and Co., 7. Milford Lane, W.C.2.) In this beautifully produced typically-Foulis book, George Monkhouse surveys Grand Prix racing from 1894 to the present day. Inevitably he covers much the same ground as other writers such as Rose, Pomeroy and Karslake, but this he is well aware of ; indeed, he makes generous...

Sideslips by "Baladeur"

Some time ago, I remarked, in an unguarded moment, that one day I should have to write an article on "Racing Cars Which Never Appeared." It was a rash move, since, as I might almost have expected, a reader has taken me up, with the suggestion that "one day" should be now; in fact, that I had better get on with it. It is a large subject, and I can hardly hope to do justice to it in a short article...

Letters from Readers

orateio Sir, Being now fully engaged in building vessels for the R.A.F., I still greatly appreciate reading MOTOR Soar as a recreation, and have been surprised at the large aniount of correspondence that has appeared therein recently regarding the old Bentleys.

MILITARISING THE SPORT

MILITARISING THE SPORT NE of the most striking aspects of the war from our point of view has been the number of Army training motor-cycle trials, supervised by civilian instructors (well known as expert tri tis competitors), organised officially, and the sanction of the War Office for their testing grounds to be used for trials, open to both civilian and military riders. The participation of Army...

Sports-car development

LAURENCE POMEROY, JUNR., has contributed many articles of extreme interest to "The Motor" since becoming Technical Editor, and he has considerably livened-up this paper. In the issue of January 24th, he deals with five years' development of sports-type cars. He emphasises that in 1934 the Le Mans 24-Hour Race was won by a supercharged 2.3-litre Alfa-Romeo at 74.7 m.p.h., whereas the 1939 Le Mans...

Club News

We Hear A Bangor garage apparently has in hand a 500-c.c. "Special" with d.t. Douglas engine and Austin Seven transmission. W. A. Wiseman has a 1920 D-type "23/60" Vauxhall (with an absolutely unchipped starter ring, incidentally!), and he hopes to restore it to very good order indeed. In 1946 he bought a 1927 Armstrong-Siddeley Fifteen tourer for £45 and in 10,000 miles the only trouble...

THE COCKFOSTERS RALLY

THE• COCKFOSTERS RALLY THE sight, sound and smell of motor racing having been denied us for nearly six years, it was not surprising that the Cocicfosters Rally, organised by A. F. Rivers-Fletcher for the enjoyment of motoring enthusiasts, was very well attended on July 14th. The weather was for the most part sunny and very warm, torrential rain obligingly waiting until the demonstration runs were...
