Regalia/BHS Shop

 

After many years raising funds for the Club by the sale of merchandise, Peter Nunn has handed over the reins to Sandra Stapleton.   At the same time, it has been decided to rename this area of our Club.   Thus the BHS Shop has been born!

 

Most of our merchandise with the BHS logo is sourced from Embroidery Unlimited, a company we have worked with for many years. 
With a small club like ours, it is not economically possible to keep a stock of items, so have a look at their on-line catalogue at
www.embroideryunlimited.co.uk .   If you are thinking of buying a new sweater, T-shirt, anorak, scarf, fleece, body warmer etc,
why not buy via the BHS Shop and help raise Club funds at the same time?  There are no prices available in the on-line catalogue,
but be assured they will not break the bank.    If you find something you would like to buy, email Sandra on sandra.barry@sfr.fr or telephone: 0033 247 955652 and she will get a price and a delivery time for you.  Your payment will be to the BHS in the normal manner
(by cheque or bank transfer).

Autumn Closer  2019
Wasn't it a lovely day to be caught in the rain - to misquote Irving Berlin. The wet stuff descended in stair rods on the beautiful Test Valley, making old car motoring more "testing" than the organisers had planned - but, undeterred, we all had  a great day anyway!

La Vie en Bleu - Prescott, Gloucestershire - 25th/26th May 2019.

 

Always a colourful event, for many people a social rather than sporting one, this year's "La

Vie" saw the Bugatti Owners' Club celebrating its 90th Anniversary Year with a wonderful

gathering of the iconic marque. The organisers hoped for 90 Bugattis and it seemed they'd

achieved this, as they processed up the Hill. Not seen in England for 60 years, the works 1930

type 59/50B monoposto driven at Prescott by Wimille in 1939 was the star of the Museum's

display, on loan from the Schlumpf Collection, Mulhouse, France.

 

The BHS displayed cars in the Paddock on both days, including Doug Crowther's AM2 La

Baule, Tom Roberts' AM2 Monaco, George Rilon's Hotchkiss Jeep from the 1950s , Tony Curtis's

Vichy (driven by Wes Twinning on Saturday) and the Scotts' Modane. Ian Beattie's ex-

Buckmaster 1939 Modane competed. And a stylish Gregoire was parked in the Orchard on

Saturday (could this be the ex-"Automobile" car now owned by new member David

Widgery?)

 

The Can-Can girls danced, the Hot Club Quintet played beguiling jazz and the "gendarmes"

kept us in order. Despite somewhat mixed weather, it was all really good fun!

AM80 High Ration Crown wheel and pinion

Mike Tebbett is investigating getting a new high ratio crown wheel and pinion made by Guest Gears for my AM80, just like the batch organised many years ago by Peter Nunn.

The ratio will be 12/48 or 4.1 and I think they will surely also suit the AM2?   I shall order one set for my car but of course, if we can get a few more made then the price is significantly reduced.

e.g. for two sets £1175.00 or for three sets, it is £900.00. Plus VAT and carriage. Let me know if you are interested.  m.tebbett@tiscali.co.uk 

 

Clos(er) ratio gearbox

Peter Nunn tells me that many years ago he organised the manufacture of nine sets of close-ratio gears for the AM2 and AM80 gearbox. Does anyone still have an unused set still on the garage shelf?

Images needed.

The website can only be as good as the images we have on it. If you take any photos while out with your car, let's share them.

We need them as big as possible please so send them in at the largest file size your camera or phone allows. And don't forget, the pictures don't have to be from an organised day out. Any lovely pictures help make the site great for all.

 

Videos can be accommodated as well.
