Indeed, Vintage and Prestige had one of the largest stands at the show which dominated the entrance to the large hall where the show took place.

Over the last two years I had several conversations with Mr James Byrnes, the owner & proprietor of The Byrnes Motor Trust. In talking with him he would casually mention that he had 15 of this model, 20 of that model & 30 of the other model of Jaguar/Rolls Royce/Mercedes etc which I have to say I took with a slight grain of salt, having been previously led down the garden path of fantasy in the p
My old friend Donald was desirous of having his 20hp back at his place in the Dordogne to use for this coming 2014 season. Accordingly he suggested we give his car a thorough service & drive it back to him by way of a holiday. Thus last month I loaded the car to the gunnels with wife, two urchins & clothes for a week & off we set.
Our first day was a leisurely drive down to Portsmouth at a stea
London to Brighton by 6hp Dedion.
Last year a chap called from Australia touting a 6hp DeDion Bouton that he had found in a barn. Apparently the car was shipped down under in 1903, hit a stump in about 1910 & was unceremoniously shunted into a barn where it lay undisturbed until recently. The Australian vendor had got it running (barely as it turned out) & restored its cosmetics beautifully to
I recently bought a delightful Rolls Royce 20hp Barker all weather cabriolet in Dumfries Scotland. Having parted with my hard earned cash I loaded it upon a trailer & made a slow progress back south to base. This to me is the best of body configurations allowing for full closed, half open or fully open motoring.
The Rolls Royce 20hp is in my opinion the finest car the company ever built. It
Last Wednesday dawned cold & clear. I had calls to make to photograph cars in places as disparate as Falmouth in Cornwall & Stranraer in Scotland. Nothing for it but to fire up the trusty Piper Cherokee & triangulate round the country. The distances involved meant an early start. As close to 7 hours flight time was involved I recruited my Brother as a co pilot, whom whilst not actually a posse
Last week a customer in Spain called. He had purchased a delightful Mulliner Wraith previously & now wished to trade it against a Silver Cloud II I had in stock. After protracted negotiations involving the two cars, we came to a gentlemens’ agreement over the telephone, & agreed to meet near Santander to do the exchange. Accordingly I made bookings & decided to also to take a couple of extra days
A brief report of driving two 1911 cars in the 100 year Alpenfahrt re-enactment.
The Osterreichische Alpenfahrt was run during the years 1910 through 1914. It was a contest & reliability trial covering arduous mountain passes & was open to all motor manufacturers. Many of the majors participated with illustrious names such as Rolls-Royce, Mercedes, Star & Cadillac running along side little hear
Late last year I acquired a Rolls Royce Phantom 1. The Derby built car is really nothing more than a Silver Ghost chassis with a more modern engine mounted in it, but at the time was a quantum leap forward replacing the Ghost engine that had been in production for a couple of decades. The good part was its original drop dead body by noted coach builders Thrupp & Maberly, in dual cowl phaeton fo
For our Summer holidays my extended family rented a large farm house in the Dordogne at which we were all to gather. Having a Rolls-Royce Phantom V in stock, I thought to myself what better car to take? We duly fired it up, loaded a 10 day supply of luggage & took the overnight ferry to St Malo. The following day we drove south at a steady 80 mph for a couple of hundred miles before pulling
When I was a young man a few decades ago I was driving one day through Winchester in Hampshire. As I drove along the road by St Cross I came upon a magnificent blue/black Phantom 1 Tourer sitting outside a church pressed into wedding duties, chauffeur waiting expectantly at the wheel. I stopped & mused upon the beauty of the car & vowed to myself that I would one day earn enough money to buy su
