Ditto. Quite superb

Footnote.  Mr Carter asks if my Trident will be attending the NMCR.  No can do.

It has to be my Scootacar by order of Mr Kearney.

things beautiful and excellent, shine forth far better when other people
praise them than when they boast so confidently of their own achievements."

Many thanks to Jamie for supplying the Bristol Blenheim pix. I saw the one on the right in a classic car magazine about 20-25 years ago. It implied that the maker worked at Bristol, had seen Heinkels and Messerscmitts, and had decided to malke a British Aero/Bubble. Shame the car will be lost, but it is for a good cause!

I have to add my praise for the latest RUMCAR NEWS. Superb. The tale of the pebble dash wallpaper in the Regent was worth the subscription price alone.

The Bristol Blenheim car was also mentioned in the May 2nd 1990 issue of "Classic Car Weekly" when the car was donated to the Imperial War Museum. It doesn't add a great deal more to the story other than as a car it was electrically powered, built by a Mr Ralph Nelson of Bristol and was on the road between 1947 and 1954. The article doesn't mention Heinkels or Messerschmitts, but does mention that at some point it carried a fighter gun pack, presumably to deter parking wardens and assist with overtaking.
