Catch the Blue Train

In Seattle lurks a unique Bentley and a host of other exotica A friend of mine is a dyed-in-the-wool motor racing enthusiast, as well as a great fan of unlimited hydroplaning. Thus, when he started talking casually about the 'Blue Train' over dinner in Seattle's Metropolitan Grille last November, I wasn't altogether surprised. But with him, you never quite know. Surely he didn't mean the real '...

Compulsory seat belts

Sir, Re: compulsory wearing of seat belts . . . I agree entirely with Mr. J. C. Armstrong (March issue) and am so glad he has cancelled his membership of the AA, for I have cancelled my standing order for one of your weekly contemporaries (having been a fairly regular reader for nearly 40 years) for the very same reason. My wife (26-1/2 years driving and no mishaps) and myself (41-1/2 ditto)...

It was some years later before I had a chance to actually ride in a car, a 1913...

Formula One team bosses are never the easiest characters to track down...

My year's motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove during 1982 Before I embark on another look-back at the cars I was allowed to road-test last year, it should be clearly emphasised that since Motor Sport has had a Group Features Editor I have been relieved of the necessity to undertake the full assignment of road-test cars that come our way for assessment and therefore that this traditional summing-up...
