Newby Hall Concourse Rally 2015

Please find enclosed some pictures of the Newby Concourse Rally organised by the North of England Classic and Pre War Automobile Club (NECPWA) which was held near Ripon in North Yorkshire on Sunday 19th July, the event attached around 1700 entries, some coming from as far afield as Holland and Germany. The cars ranged in class A from a 1904 Jackson Dog Cart which was parked alongside a beautifully original 1912 Panhard Levassor town car which spent a number of years in a Dutch Motor Museum. 

Class B represented cars made from 1919 through to 1930, within this section some fine examples of British cars were represented, these included a 1922 Clathorpe,  two 1925 Morris Oxford Bullnoses, three Bullnose Morris Cowleys and a 1926 Rolls Royce 20HP, these are just to mention a few. Also on display were a number of club stands which featured the models through the era.  A traditional part of the Newby Hall Concourse is the Autojumble which again this year was well attended by stallholders and customers. Luckily after a few showers earlier on Sunday the day remained fine.

Thanks must go to the NECPWA  for running yet again a fantastic event at Newby Hall. Further pictures can be found on my flickr site, please click here.

A Prescott Lady Mystery (update: 1909/1912 (?) Humber)

Author: Andrew Howe Davies Friday, 07 August 2015

prescott lady_mystery_470

Andrew Howe Davies was competing at last weekend's Prescott Vintage Hill Climb when a lady came up to him with this photo which belongs to a friends family. They would love to know the make and year.  Andrew adds: "I thought it might be a (UK made) Star , the radiator has a distintive angle at the bottom , which might help."
Editor; we only can add, that the lady at the helm of B3258 seems well prepared. Even for use on Prescott Hill her fine hat looks like good for anything. The dog seems at ease as well. Yorkshire terrier?


Cars at Windsor Castle

Cars at Windsot Castle

In your article you write that you wish you could see inside the motor house of Windsor's Castle. I decided to send you some pictures of the book 'Everybody's Book of The Queen's Dollhouse', original edition 1924. Would this be on show somewhere?"

Kind regards,
John Elema
