By its nature the Alvis Register Bulletin tends to hark back to a century ago but it is refreshing to see a young(ish) professional journalist in the Editor’s seat with experience of all eras of Alvis motoring. Nigel Boothman will have had the advantage of the paternal 4.3, TD21, Silver Eagle and the 12/50 as well as other marques of distinction. We were very pleased to see Greg Wrapson making good use of the archive photos in his latest piece and as ever, adding to the history among the 50 pages of articles and photos.
The latest June edition of Octane (228) has another piece on Alvis penned by Karl Ludvigsen opining that the TB14 may have been designed by a Swiss who also designed the beautiful Alfa 12C prototipo that is the cover feature. He goes on to explain how AP Metalcraft came about (see also www.alvis14.com and chassis 21908).
