We have a piece in the latest Formula Junior magazine on Michael Lavers and the Formula Juniors he bought and sold some years ago when the cars were less popular than they are today. As much as anything, it was a good excuse to publish some of Michael's fantastic period photographs. Some examples are shown below - in order, a Queens Gate Place Mews scene circa 1979, Stanguellini FJ #00139 as it arrived in the UK in 1980 and Duncan Rabagliati's Alexis FJ shortly before he acquired it.

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.

We recently took our Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint to Peter Baldwin's rolling road near Royston to check the fuelling and ignition and tweak either or both as required. We went down a tiny amount on the jetting and decided that the distributor might benefit from a slightly different curve. Great expertise and always time well spent.

A lovely little event raising money for charities with a display of cars along both sides of the length of St John's High Street. There were some lovely classic and racing cars on show, including an old friend - not only was the Porsche 356 pre-A we sold earlier this year taking part in the event, but it was also promoting Classics at the Castle in September and next year's 356 International. A hard-working little car!

Next year's Porsche 356 International meeting will be in the UK. More details of the event and contact/registration forms at the link below, which also features the silver-grey 1953 356 pre-A we sold recently. The new owner has added bumpers with lighweight trims - a nice addition to an already lovely car.
