Daffodils in bloom, warmth from the sun and the sound of an Alvis engine bursting into life after a winter of hibernation. The weather forecast for Geneva is sunny this week, ideal for visit to the Geneva Salon, but not this year. Seventy years ago Graber was exhibiting his first Alvis Three Litre at the Salon and the Alvis Owner Club had just been established and published the first “Alvistas”. From the archives we have created a new page AOC Alvistas 1951-3 of the very first AOC publications to download and read.
