August should have seen 100s of Alvis gathering in Coventry for the centenary but social distancing put paid to that. Some have managed to meet in small groups including a few Alvis, Bristol and Bentley owners in a Lincolnshire “Open Garden” who were able to enjoy some unique coachbuilt motors in a compliant environment.

  1. At the risk of stating the obvious, the car in Robin Morgan’s photograph is a TB 16.95 with a Carbodies 6 light saloon body. The TB 16.95 was the first wide chassis Silver Eagle introduced in March 1930 and succeeded by the TC 16.95 (with centre lock wheels, Luvax dampers and silent third gearbox) from December 1930.

  2. I was local to Bushey in the late 50’s and into the 60’s and am sure that I saw this Alvis, on several occasions, whilst driving about in my various Alvis 12/50’s
