Classic Car Show NEC

I attended the show today. It amazes me that there are always cars to see that youv'e never seen before, a great experience. Before I visited the excellent Jensen stand I came across club member Keith Hudson with his Jensen FF. He had entered the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership competition. I...

Re: 1958 Jensen Tempo - Tempo Matador 1

I have just caught up with this thread. I wish I could be more helpful on the subject of what work Jensen did to the Tembo commercial vehicles other than selling them. What I can tell you is that I made some production drawings for this vehicle when I worked in the Carters Green body drawing office....

Re: Bill Smith's H Type restoration in progress

Visited the JOC stand at the NEC today. Excellent as always. Particularly liked the "80 years since Jensen appearing at London Motor Show theme, with cars to match. Spoke to Bill Smith about his Jensen H model project and was fascinated by the Richard Jensen wedding connection. The second photo...

Healey/Jensen Connection

Some of you know that for the last couple of years I have been a volunteer with the Warwickshire County Record Office Healey archive project. The WCRO bought a Donald Healey Motor Company archive (there are several spread around the world) from the late Geoff Healey's family in 2016 having been its ...

Does anyone know how much the Scimitar GTE went for. It seemed to be a steal at the estimated price of £K 5 - 7.

Re: Carters Green days, The Phil Grice Interview.

Fantastic photos Paul, thanks for posting. Re the one that has Ray Meanley in, from memory I would identify him as the big man on the right at the back with the striped tie. I would say that this photo was taken between 15 and 20 years before I came across Ray as machine shop foreman at Kelvin Way. ...

A good question re are there any charges made to visit this Museum? Michael. The whole experience was quite bizarre. Because I had done my homework I expected to see the owner at some stage during our visit. As it happened he was walking down the drive towards the dilapidated sheds where the cars ar...
