|I recently bought this BSA Scout from 1938 , type 6 modelyear 1939 , slighly modified to a sport version. BSA are quiet rare here in Holland , as production overal was very limited . has a 1204 CC engine , with 3 speed , in umbrella style. Has loads of history with the car , with complete V5 from 1938 ! and a handbook what original was with the car. Car is in good condiotion , been restored early 70ties , and paint has its patina , but no need to restore . We will do some technical work on the car and hope to be a member of the DVSCC in Holland next year and drive it on the tracks. Car came out of long ownership in Wales and the very friendly former owner sold the car with loads of spares , including engine, gear box etc. For me my first entry in the pre war scene, after driving a TR for 30 years !

|Some time ago I participated in prewar quiz 414, but meanwhile, I found more information that I would like to share. I 'm a volunteer for the Belgian Federation of Ancient Cars (BFOV/FBVA), and once a week we work in Brussels where we put up an information centre. The library of the Belgian Veteran Car Club is located on the same spot. I wanted to know more on Dunamis, and together with a staff member of the RVCCB, I looked in the cabinets. Inside the official catalogue of the XVII Brussels Car Show (1923) I found an advert. The bound volume of the 1923 Englebert Magazines gave some general information and the technical data. 25 HP, 8 cylinders, 70 x 110, 3386 cc, Scintilla ignition, Solex carb, multiple disc clutch, OHV, brakes on all wheels, 895 x 150 tyre size, 45000 francs for the chassis and 60000 francs for the torpédo, by far the most expensive of the belgian cars listed. A Miesse 25 HP car was 44000 francs and a Métallurgique 26 HP 50000 francs. The coloured advert comes from "De geschiedenis van de Belgische auto", a book issued in 1980 that I have in my own little library.
Regards and keep them rolling,

As a follow up to my piece on the above (click) here is the car on Ainsdale Beach [Southport] Wednesday 16th March. There were many Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Register support cars which also ran on the beach and a very good replica of the Campbell Bluebird with 24 litre Napier Lion Aircraft engine. I counted no less than eight twin cam 3 litre Sunbeams in attendance. As it was free admission there were many members of the public there to watch. It was well worth the 250 mile round trip.

This is one of four pre-war cars that were on hand to launch my new book about the early days of the automobile industry (on both sides of the Atlantic), CAR CRAZY: The Battle for Supremacy between Ford and Olds and the Dawn of the Automobile Age.
Learn more about the book at the CAR CRAZY site.
The other cars were an 1893 Duryea, a 1912 Packard and a 1904 Oldsmobile -- the very model that raced acrosss the American continent in 1905, one of many adventures in the book. Enjoy the ride! G. Wayne
