Does anyone know the date when this little publication was released?

Richard,

I have a copy which I bought new at a motor museum when I was 10 or 11 which dates it to 1974/5, it still has the price sticker on - £1.25. There is a copy advertised on ebay as being published in 1963.

Although I had a 1960 TD21 dhc (421MPO, where are you now?) from the late 1960's I knew nothing about the prewar cars. It was seeing and buying Alvis In the Thirties early in 1972 in a motoring bookshop in Chiswick - Chater and Scott? that attracted me to them and responding to a Motor Sport Classified advert for a wrecked Speed 25 dhc and buying it for £250. I restored it over 3 years and kept it until 1999, covering 60,000 miles or so.

Idris,

Any regrets in selling it? Would you buy another pre war car?
