By News Story

Thanks to the engineering skills of Hayden Edwards and Peter Brock‘s graphics expertise a new ‘How to’ pdf has been uploaded to the Technical Bits section under Instruments & controls within the Member’s Area.

Get-you-home dodges Part 1 added

By News Story

On 12th May 1934 a new weekly motoring magazine, the  Practical Motorist, was launched with little fanfare. It was aimed at the do-it-yourself owner driver and was continuously in print until 1997 seeing off more illustrious rivals in the shape of The Motor and Light Car along the way. During the early months of its publication it ran a sequence of articles entitled ‘Get-you-home dodges’ which provided practical advice on overcoming roadside problems. In most cases these tips are just as relevant today for those running pre-war cars and could save a call to your favoured recovery service. The first five of a fifteen part sequence of articles can now be found on a single PDF in the Member’s Area Technical Bits section under ‘Everything Else’.
