It was a pleasure to take the ex-Teddy Yip Macau race-winning 1970 911S form its home in central London to this year’s Classics at the Castle, where it featured as part of the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the 911S. Arriving at our destination, we were directed to a prime display spot opposite the Keep. The ex-Vic Elford 2.4S company car was to one side, with the ex-Gerald Larousse Tour de France ...

We have had our eye on these little sports bikes from the 1960s for some time and have at last acquired a well-restored original UK example, complete with matching numbers and its original registration number and V5.

We have sold our 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB Vetro. A fun 1968 Porsche 911L has arrived as, at the other end of the size scale, has a lovely 1981 Rolls-Royce Corniche coupe. There is talk of a Porsche 356 pre-A and some small, lightweight bikes have turned up - we have acquired a 1954 Triumph Terrier and a 1965 Honda S90 Sports. More on those later. For now, a picture of the Corniche.

A couple of recently-fitted details on our 1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint. The first is a modern push-button operated external igntion cutout from Cartek. There is a smaller button inside the car next to the regular igntion switch with the same function. The second is a modern FiA-compliant LED rear warning light, also from Cartek. Historic cars don't need to have old safety equipment.
