A Portrait of the Vintage Sports-Car Club 1934-2014

£19.99

Product description

In 1934 a handful of motoring enthusiasts met to establish a club for the owners of light cars of not more than £50 of value and that were at least three years of age, hoping to hold trials and other events suitable for such unassuming machinery. Eighty years later the resultant club has grown to over seven thousand members, its calendar of events including race meetings, sprints, hill climbs, trials, navigation rallies, autotests and tours, with their owners competing in such varied vehicles as Austin Sevens and ERAs, Rolls Royces and De Dion Boutons and a wide range of interesting and sporting cars as built from 1905 onwards, in particular those of the 1920s and 1930s.

A Portrait of the Vintage Sports-Car Club tells the story of how a small body of energetic and determined individuals, united by their love of fine vehicles from earlier years, built up the Club on the basis of a modest idea, and from it developed a range of often unique events and the buoyant organisation that we know today.

The book itself is in excellent fine condition with blue boards and silver titles, and the club badge is embossed in silver on the front. The jacket has a few light handling marks and indentations and some minor edge creasing. Attractively produced, printed on quality paper and fully illustrated with photographs and cartoons, the book should interest anyone with an enthusiasm for vintage cars
