    Warners are now selling Citroens but on the edge of town rather than in the centre. What is the car?


     
    Hotel parking. The Royal Hop Pole is now a Witherspoons and there are drinking tables where the cars are parked.


    Rail access to the wharf.

    So I’ve sold the Mercury to a fellow shitter. And offered to deliver it down to Bristol for fuel dollar. Brother following in his German long roof. Mercury running a dream, cruising down the motorway with ease. So comfy. Poo count 1. 
     
    Stopped at frankley choke and puke for a 10-100.

    ^ ^ Reading comments and pictures in order as I scroll down the page can tend to put things out of context.

    Yes it's one of the early Audax without the fins they added later on.  Designed by Loewy Studios.
    Warners are still going strong...

    Tewkesbury is a lovely town, or at least it was 40 years ago, which is the last time I was there. I think the car could be an Audax Minx convertible, with the usual brightwork on the sides removed.

    I’n no Aveling expert (when I win the lottery I am going to buy every Aveling and gas axe the lot) but it looks like nothing has broken there. It always surprised me on the Fowler that next to nothing held the fork into the sliding block in the perch bracket (the block let it swing from side to side) and you mainly relied on gravity to keep things in place. Since things like rollers tended to be rather feeble things (and Aveling singles were more feeble than a new born fawn) there was insufficient torque to pick the front up.
    It looks like in the crash the front has been picked up and the fork has become disengaged.
    Either that or the owner of the roller subscribed to Max Flattening and he had tuned his roller to make it way more powerful. It is possible that what we are seeing there is a very early car show leaving fail.

    Some pics of the Consul Capri being made, metalwork done at Pressed Steel Co Ltd, then final assembly at Dagenham. Sorry it's a bit of a photo-dump but these pics belong together.
















    All done.

    This one is a blinder. When you see things like that you begin to understand why cars used to be ruinously expensive and didn't last very long. As the clueless are so fond of saying,  "they don't build them like they used to".

    Moto Guzzi 500 v-twin, 1935. This was the famous v twin before the famous v-twin. It developed 51bhp - almost unheard of at the time. Stanley Woods won the Senior TT riding one, the first 'foreign' victory since 1911 - which was a 3.75hp  Indian ridden by Oliver Godfrey.

    Here's our Oliver, looking a little sheepish.
