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.

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).

Worth a look to see the car and some history. Freddie Smith used to work at Goodwood and the car was at the Festival of Speed this year.

ACOC News and Events / AC International
« on: August 16, 2022, 14:28:16 »
Huge thanks and appreciation to Constant, Juergen and Ursula for organising a magnificent International event in Germany. The weather was, well, hot... but the drives, scenery, venue locations and meals were second to none. Take a big pat on the back from all of us who enjoyed so immensely. So who's next...

Ace, Aceca & Greyhound Forum / Lights failure
« on: May 12, 2022, 21:16:24 »
I have an Aceca Bristol and just went to go out and neither the headlights, rear lights or spotlights will work. Indicators do and if I use the flasher for the spotlights, that works. Looked at the fuses and they all look OK. Any idea?

General Discussion / 2022/23 Renewals
« on: April 01, 2022, 12:11:41 »
Many, many thanks to all the ACOC members who have renewed their subscription, it really is appreciated. We are quite a small club and a substantial part of your subscription goes to producing ACtion, the award-winning club magazine ably produced by Terry Webb and always a good read every month. If you are not sure that you have renewed you can check your status by looking at the renewal date on your profile; if it says 2022 then you will have to renew for the coming year. And to those on the forum who look at these posts and are not members, why not join? It's worth it for the magazine alone besides any other benefits.

ACOC News and Events / ACOC 2022/223 Renewals
« on: February 15, 2022, 08:30:43 »
Just to say that the current year's membership ends on February 28th and I hope that all our members of the ACOC would wish to continue their membership and a big thank you to all those who have already paid by PayPal via the ACOC site, or sent cheques/checks or details for me to take payments. It is much appreciated. Renewal forms were published in the February magazine and there will be further reminders to encourage you to renew! Terry Webb produces 11 excellent ACtion magazines annually for you and the membership fee is worth that alone for the interesting read on all things AC and, of course, there are the events that the Club puts on for your benefit too. And I hope some of you who are members of the Forum but not the ACOC may be encouraged to join, it's extremely good value for the annual subscription.

ACOC News and Events / National Day 2021
« on: August 05, 2021, 15:52:03 »
Now Covid is not threatening all events we are going to have a National Day this year at the Weald & Downland Museum on the day following the Sprint, ie Sunday 12th September. Not a weekend organised do as in the last few years as so much uncertainty has surrounded the organisation of events but at least we do have a day and a venue to meet up at long last! One legacy of Covid is that we are required to prebook admittance to the Museum but we do have a reduced rate! £12.50 for under 60 and £10.60 for over 60 and £4.40 for children. Full details have been published in the July edition of ACtion and the ad is repeated in the August edition (currently going to press). We have a dedicated parking area away from the public car park and next to the exhibits and on site is a modern cafe with plenty of seating. It would be nice to see you!

Andrew Noakes has approached the club for a nice condition MkIV to take part in a magazine cover feature and photo shoot. Ideally a bright colour (but not red) in excellent condition inside and out and under the bonnet. Location will be either Dunsfold or Longcross in Surrey early in June. He would want the car briefly for a driving compression (the car will be insured separately by the magazine for this). Please contact Andrew on 01584 823340 or 07980 293539 or

General Discussion / GDPR options
« on: June 28, 2019, 09:32:43 »
ACOC members will have received a form asking them to check some options about sharing their personal details that relate to General Data Protection. Just a reminder to those who read the forum to return the prepaid form to Herts Display or to me if you are a member from abroad. When you view a member's profile (having securely logged in) you will shortly see their name and membership number only. If you check the boxes on the letter accompanying ACtion to allow us to display one, two, three or all of the options (address, phone number, email and car details) then this is what a member will see as well when they look at your profile. If you wish to find members near you or members with a similar car to you then this is invaluable and has been the case until recently when we had to adopt this new stance in light of regulation. So do please send your forms back! Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

General Discussion / This year's membership
« on: June 28, 2019, 09:21:18 »
Final reminder to all those members who check the forum but never check the magazine.... Renewal date was March 1st this year and if you have not renewed, then June was the last issue of ACtion you will receive! The July issue will be with the printers imminently so check your membership status on your profile if. you are unsure. We have continued until now to send the magazine out to give you time to renew and not miss any issues. It is an excellent read so don't miss out.Thanks to all those who have renewed.
