Taking history for a spin

I remember visiting the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Hampshire when I was young.

Here, Beaulieu’s Chief Engineer, Doug Hill, gives a 1939 Morgan Le Mans Replica a spin.

Fun fact!

My grandfather tells me that his first car, bought in the 1950’s for £150, was a 1934 MG like the one in the picture below.  But sadly his fiancée, my grandmother, did not enjoy being driven around East Anglia in the freezing cold winter of 1955, and he sold it – at a loss!

Did you enjoy this?

  1. Dear Guy, Your Zoom workshop this morning was fantastic! It was lovely to see the other WoWers and you are brilliant at explaining things simply. You always put a smile on my face and I went straight to put the WoW button on my iPad and a link for our benefice web site. Just for your interest on my (old) iPad when trying to get the button as you had described I couldn’t find Menu , so having clicked on Safari, just typed in ‘weboftheweek’, then clicked on the box with the arrow and then ‘add’ and it happened! I really enjoy your selection of programmes. Thank you so much for all the effort you are putting into this.

    1. Ruth, thank you so much for such kind words. I’m really pleased that you are enjoying it so much and that we are succeeding in our mission of putting smiles on people’s faces. Please do let me know the address of the website to which you are referring to, I would be interested to have a look. And great to to hear that you found how to add the WoW button! For anyone else looking, this article should help you add a WoW button to your tablet or mobile. . Speak soon – hopefully at our next WoW Zoom meeting!
