Arab CarsHaving 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.
Kind regards,
David Barker

My pre-war cars

My pre-war cars
1937 Hudson Custom 8, 1930 Ford standard roadster, 1938 Chevrolet Town Sedan, 1941 Cadillac series 63, 1941 Oldsmobile 76 series club sedan

All are perhaps high #3 condition cars, and all but the Cadillac have had some level of restoration.  The Cadillac shows virtually no wear after 41k miles.

All are regularly driven, maintained and enjoyed.  Other cars in the collection and the shop I built to house them may be seen here:

My wife and I live in the upper midwest, but none of the cars have any rust or rust repairs whatsoever.  

Cheers, Chris Rewey

Mr Quirk of Keswick

Dear editor,

Better late than never!  I have just found this photo of Mr Quirk whose garage in Keswick featured recently.  This was taken back in 1980 when he would have been over 80 years of age and still driving his '04 Darracq.

Hope you can use the photo

kind regards

Bill

Bullnose Morris Summer Rally

The Bullnose Morris Club held its annual summer rally in Hickstead, West Sussex and based at the Classic Lodges hotel. The weekend was attended by 33 cars and the routes for both days made their way through the Sussex countryside finishing at Beachy Head on Sunday. The weather stayed fair for the weekend with some sunshine making for some lovely driving. 

The earliest car in attendance was a 100 year old, 1916 Morris Cowley with a continental engine.  

Pictures enclosed are some of the cars which attendened the weekend.

a BSA Scout 1938I 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 ! 

kind regards
