    Glenn Rowswell on 1st May 2018

    Internal competition was rife between Rolls-Royce and Bentley models since the former acquired the latter in 1931. With T Series Bentleys fetching more than their Silver Shadow equivalents, is the same true for their Arnage and Silver Seraph descendants?

    FORD V8 PILOT

    Glenn Rowswell on 11th April 2018

    Though it was produced exclusively post-war, and a model intended to get Ford back into business quickly, the Pilot was to all intents and purposes a continuation of what Ford had been doing in the years coming up to 1939, and contained few if any ‘new’ components...

    MARKET TRENDS – SPECIALIST CLASSIC BRITISH SPORTS CARS

    Glenn Rowswell on 9th April 2018

    MARKET TRENDS – EXPENSIVE SWEDES

    Glenn Rowswell on 26th March 2018

    Classic Swedish marques and models offer excellent value for money – but there are some models, away from even the most cherished P1800s – which have asking prices higher than others.
