Motoring Classics Summer 2012

The British Motor Heritage dealer network is our all-important interface with you, the enthusiast, and in this issue we profile Tim Kelly’s popular West Country operation. As you’ll read, he’s not only renowned nationwide for his MG restorations, but has had a major hand in one of the trio of MGBs we’ve built in celebration of the model’s 50th anniversary – keep an eye open for them at this year’s major classic events.

This issue’s Missing Moniker concerns Turner Sports Cars, the nimble products of which are still picking up pots on both sides of the Atlantic to this day, even though production ceased as long ago as 1966. The Classic Character is Sydney Allard, an amazing gentleman who not only designed and built an array of very worthy motorcars, but personally drove examples of them to international success – his Monte Carlo Rally victory in a car of his own creation remains a unique achievement that will surely never be matched.

A valued Motoring Classics supplier, EBC are also a major export success story, the full extent of which has been little reported until now. Better known, but always worth revisiting, is the wonderful history of the Austin pedal cars that were produced by disabled miners at Bargoed, Glamorgan – I admit to being among those of a certain age currently rekindling childhood memories by restoring a J40 in my spare time.

Last but not least, we’ve taken to the skies in a WWII Lancaster – a truly unforgettable experience.

Enjoy!

Missing Moniker: Turner Sports Cars

In production terms the Turner moniker has been missing since Jack Turner closed the doors on his eponymous company in January 1966. However, examples of the breed are still collecting silverware and some 317 of the c.670 manufactured exist today.

Classic Character: Sydney Allard (1910-1966)

Some of us are born with petrol rather than blood in our veins. Sydney Herbert Allard certainly seems to have been, and remains the only person to win the Monte Carlo Rally in a car bearing their own name.

Braking Point

You still hear the taunts don’t you? Britain’s manufacturing industry is gone. Nothing is made here anymore. The country is now little more than a service and banking facility these days. Well don’t you believe it.

Pedal Power

Happy children, redeployed miners, road safety programmes, 30,000 sales worldwide – the story of the Austin pedal cars wants for nothing.

Trimming Up

Leading car trim experts, Allon White Sports Cars of Cranfield, Beds, shares a few tricks of the trade to help you maintain your car interior in tip top condition. Most of Allon White’s work is bespoke in nature, from the complete restoration of the interiors of treasured classics to new car contracts (the company is the approved trimmer for Lotus Cars). Newton Commercial on the other hand is the country’s largest supplier of off-the shelf replacement trim for British Classics.
