Heard the sad news yesterday that Brian Angliss has passed away. There will be an article on Brian in ACtion soon and all of us with MkIVs should be very grateful for his exceptional quality product that continued on from AC. Almost all MkIVs still exist which is testament to his ethos and the factory staff who built them. RIP Brian.

Look at the chassis crossmember at the front of the car and you will find some stampings there

if you are in the GRRC Luke, go to their facebook page and there have been lots of tickets offered or look on Twickets which seems to be proved by GRRC

Glad you like your MkIV Eric, they are great cars, utterly usable.

Not a rant Gary but the Forum is open to all, not just ACOC members but not all ACOC members use the forum so even though articles are placed on the Forum it would be nice to see them appear in the magazine for the whole membership to enjoy.

The magazine can only publish articles that are received. John Spencer, the Librarian, pens a magnificent historical article each month on the diverse history of AC etc, rarely ever about a Cobra. If 2 Litre owners want to write in, also PVT or Vintage we'd all be interested to see the article and read about them. The Forum does dilute some interest in the magazine as it is more immediate and being 'open' has brought its problems to the club, notably the removal of the right to use the AC logo by Mr Lubinsky. The recent very successful National Day was mainly populated by Ace/Aceca/Greyhound but also 3x PVT, 4x CRS, 2x Superblower, 2x MkIV, 1x 378, 1x Frua, 2x 2 Litre, 1x Special so if you wanted to see what AC cars were like, there was a great representation of its products. Interestingly the model proportions probably equal magazine content when you look at it.

Luke, perhaps you can do a small obit and send it to Terry for publication in ACtion...?

Looked even better in the flesh Russ, you've masterminded a great job!

There a number of members in Scotland, try a letter in ACtion as not all use the forum

I thought that was an underpriced estimate. Still cheap I think for what looks a very good condition car.

I remember seeing a 2 litre (brown colour I think) at Goodwood once that had a V8 in it Gary. Never seen it since

Just been staying in Bergerac and an Austin Healey 3000 turned up in the village I was staying at with the registration 3000ME! Sadly never met the driver.

Ace 'Brooklands' Forum / Article on Brooklands Ace

In the October issue of Classic.Retro.Modern number 15 (pic of Bentley Continental on the front) there is an article on the Brooklands Ace owned by Patrick Moynihan (who says he is thinking of selling it).
