This trial is reported in the 1909 Sheffield-Simplex Catalogue, some wonderful photographs from which are attached.
Note the road surfaces, and the half-studded tyres they fitted to maintain some grip, wet or dry!

Here are my two packards, one is a 1931 833 convertible coupe which had a frame off restoration about 25 yrs ago.
the other is a 1927 433 Limo owned by the president of Honduras and the car has less than 7,000 actual miles from date of purchase.
the 3rd car is my 1926 Hudson super six with dual carbs, she was stored in parts in a warehouse in Pa from 1946 until 1974, then had a frame off restoration as well. Barry Lowe

|John Ryan has launched his new Statham's Bar and Restaurant in his Pembroke Hotel in Patrick Street, Kilkenny, Ireland. This is built on the site of the old Staham's Garage where the famous Statham Ford was built by George Statham for his salesman M J Hynes to drive. This car and driver combination competed extensively in Prewar Irish races. It's most famous victory was the 1934 Phoenix Park Senior Race.
The first picture shows George Statham congratulating M J Hynes after the race.
The second picture shows a line up of local enthusiasts' cars to mark the launch of Statham's Bar and Restaurant.

There is no limit to the amazing variety of automobile buttons from the early 20th century. Mysteries about them are limitless
This early uniform button is was made for Magasin du Nord as the back mark indicates
. This historic Danish department store dates from 1868 to the present day.
The mystery herein is the vehicle depicted on the button. Much searching on my part resulted in naught. I have no idea as to the identity of the vehicle, the year or why is it depicted on this button. Did it grace the uniform of the operator who drove this vehicle for Magasin du Nord
? Was it a massive automotive shuttle for the store? Truly any assistance with its
history or photographs is most welcomed. Many thanks.

|Having been the owner of the Arab registered UW 2 I am now trying to trace the history of all the Arab cars made. The picture attached is of UW 2 which is now owned in Austria, but the details attached show what I know of all the cars. If anyone could fill in any of the missing details I would be very grateful.
