THE M.C.C. GOES OFF THE GOLD STANDARD!

THE M.C.C. GOES OFF THE GOLD STANDARD! THE M.C.C. One-Day Sporting Trial held over a route near Buxton is always one of the most important events of this nature during the season.

Siddeley Special Safari The preface to this study of motoring white-elephantitis was published last month, so I can embark without further palaver to tell of a safari I went on recently in an exotic specimen of the breed, in the form of a well-preserved Siddeley Special.
