Make sure you watch the Avon Video at the top of the home page.

This recently unearthed footage shows an early Series 'B' Rapide that now belongs to the daughter of Club Member (who is also a Club Member in her own right).

What a great piece of history to have.

If you'd like to see the higher-resolution version - follow this link...

Look at the speed of that thing !!! Must have been shocking to the vehicles on the road at the time !! Speaking of which , the roads were deserted !! Bliss !!
Personally , I wish I could live back in those times !! Brilliant contribution Graham !!
