New Articles Index and more

Researching Fourteen history is always interesting and rewarding and I have been working
on a Fourteen index to the Alvis Owner Club Bulletins and other publications to assist Fourteen owners locating topics of interest. This is now published in the ‘Articles’ section.

Recently an Alvis Owner Club Member kindly donated some old Bulletins that have helped fill in some of the missing gaps.
Now, some of these Bulletins are duplicates and are available free to a good home for those who still appreciate a paper copy. Maybe you can see your car on the index?

I should prefer to pass them on as one lot but am prepared to split them if no one wants them in total. Postage payable.

The Bulletins are,

April 1968 Nos 176-179
283-284 September 1977.

The ‘Celebrity Cars’ section has grown a little and if anyone has proof of more Celebrity links please let us know.

See for the latest PPS by Dave Culshaw.

Those of you who are familiar with Jim Oakman and his great success over the years in Driving Tests may not know that he has also competed in a TA 14 with twin S.U.s., JPX 555, chassis no. 22126. Photos in the ‘Gallery’. Rumours abounded in 1964 that the twin S.U.s would be coming off due the additional 6 pence price rise on petrol!

‘Aunty May’, our Tickford, will shortly be experimenting with new LED lights that should produce more than the current yellow puddles of light. More importantly there will be a much smaller drain on the battery. Who has not driven along in the gloom with sidelights when the windscreen wipers are making their stately progress across the screen and the battery charging is close to negative? There will be a report back once fitted.

Keep up to date with the main Alvis Archive site, it has has expanded into more models.
Hold on to your current tax discs, DVLA may not issue anymore after October, they will track cars electronically and only one SORN will be needed for as long as a car remains untaxed.
