Wade Treadway: "While sorting through images my father shot in the 1930's I came across this scene. I don't know where it is or what the car is but liked the composition of the image with the Garage sign and the Castrol sign."

Morris eight four seat tourer

Classic British car of 1937, has been bought in 2006 from an Italian car-importer, who took the trouble to rematriculate it in Italy. Now it's cheriched on Sardinia, were it is part of my car-collection. For its elegance,  this car participates in many shows and exhibitions.

100 summers on

Ben Stephens: "Back in July last year, after reading an article in a 1934 copy of the 'Light Car' entitled 20 summers on, showing a picture of a Triumph Gloria by the Menin Gate, we decided to do a trip 100 summers on. A very moving trip of the Ypres Salient was undertaken. Staying at the wonderful Varlet Farm bed and breakfast, we toured the sites mentioned in the original article. The car is a 1934 Triumph Gloria 'Monte Carlo'. we are already planning a trip to Normandy in our six cylinder Gloria Saloon in March this year, and again to Belgium in the Monte Carlo for a trip to Waterloo."

1939 Raymond Mays

Stewart Wilkie: "I have just purchased the 1939 Raymond Mays V8 prototype, which was to be the E.R.A sportscar. The engine was a highly modified Standard Flying V-8 of 2.7 Litres. The hostilities started shortly after its launch and the plans had to be postponed. A  company though was formed called Shelsley Motors Ltd based at Bourne to produce and market the car alongside the E.R.A racing cars. It was entered for the RAC rally and driven by S.C.H. Davis (Ex Bentley Le Mans winner) who finished twelfth in class behind the SS Jaguars and the 328's. A.F. Rivers Fletcher and his spouse both managed to exceed 100 mph at Brooklands shortly after this and the handling was described from several eminent drivers as "...the best handling sportscar in its class." It would be a wonderful handling car though as the chassis, suspension and brakes were modified by the Guru Peter Berthon who was one of the directors."

5000 Prewarcar stories

Congratulations on this magnificent achievement! I must admit I did read them all, but still, many I did read and all with much pleasure. Keep up the good work, your site is obviously much appreciated world-wide!
I enclose a picture of my wife and I on board our 1926 Delage DI, purchased in 2006 to celebrate my 50th birthday. It had to be a French car because in the early years of motoring they were simply the best and I love them the most! The best event of the year for me is always the Friesian 11 cities oldtimer tour: the cars you see, the people you meet, the places you visit, just fantastic. The only time we had to abandon was due to a fawlty dynastart, but well, that is of US manufacture, so...!
Please continue with pleasing us with stories, mysteries and Christmas puzzles!
Kind regards from an enthousiastic Dutch (almost) daily visitor!
