So says the advert for the 1904 8 HP Crestmobile. Started in 1901 the Crest Manufacturing Company was based in Cambridge Massachusetts USA and began by making engines and other components.  In 1901 they launched a very simple 2 HP air cooled single cylinder runabout. The Model A followed later in the year; the Model B was powered by a 3.5 HP engine and the Model C by a 5 HP engine.   The Model D was fitted with an 8 HP engine and was introduced in 1904. In 1905 the Company was absorbed into the Alden-Sampson Co who continued to sell the left over Crestmobiles into 1906.
Little is known of the history of the car offered in the sale before it was imported in running order into the UK from the USA. A Certificate of Title in the file gives the last known American owner as a Mr David Schaik residing in PA. Imported into the UK around 1999 the car was registered BS 8303 and in early 2000 the car was presented to the VCC dating committee; a date of manufacture of 1904 is confirmed on certificate number 2315. A number if invoices are on file detailing work carried out by respected engineer Nigel Parrott and Henal Engineering which included rebuilding the gearbox and mending transmission brakes. 
The Crestmobile Model D is fitted with a single cylinder air cooled engine, rated at 8 HP, with mechanical inlet valves fed with drip feed lubrication. Transmission is a two speed epicyclic gearbox with the footbrake and handbrake operating on the transmission. This car is fitted with steel wheels and a four seater detachable tonneau body, presenting very well in red with black upholstery. A hood is fitted which covers the front passengers and there is a fitted tonneau cover over the rear seats. Brass sidelights and a rear light are also fitted.
This imposing veteran is of course eligible for the famed London to Brighton Veteran Car Run as well as all events organised by the VCC. With its single cylinder engine it is also eligible  for the ever popular Single and Twin events organised by the same Club. The car is offered with a V5, a VCC dating certificate, and tips on starting, lubrication and driving. There are also a number of copies of period adverts, sales catalogue and articles on the Crestmobile.

Louis Renault built his first car in 1898 utilising a primitive tubular chassis and a propriety De Dion engine. Having secured substantial financial backing production soon started at Billancourt with the 1 3/4 and 3 hp cars. To publicise the cars Louis and his brother Marcel saw the benefits from active participation in early motor races. The Renault voiturettes were highly thought of, with Louis Renault leading a team of four cars in the 1901 Paris-Bordeaux Race. Louis won the voiturette class completing the epic race in a time of 9 hours and 31 minutes with Marcel second and the other two Renaults third and fourth.
This early London to Brighton eligible car is unusual in that its complete history is known. It was supplied new by the sole agents for Renault Freres and Mors cars Roadway Autocar Co Ltd in London to Captain Basil Emery of Bulford Wilts and Hunstanton Norfolk. Captain Emery was a decorated career Army Officer and there is a photo on file taken c.1907 of him and his fiancé taken outside Ely Cathedral. The car was acquired in 1920 by a Mr Barnes, a chimney sweep from Reading who used it in his business. It was then acquired in 1927 by the well-known coachbuilders and motor dealers Vincents of Reading, and was in their custody until 1975. There then followed five owners until the current vendors late father acquired the car in 2006.
This 1901 example is powered by a 4.5 single cylinder water cooled De Dion engine with automatic inlet and mechanical exhaust valves and features the traditional side radiators characteristic of Renault at that time. The car is running on the correct trembler ignition system and under the bonnet is fitted the De Dion type coil. The gearbox has three forward and a reverse gear. Now fitted with a four, as opposed to the original two, seat bodywork the front carries two plates cast with E Vicart et Fils of Levallois (Seine). The coachwork is presented in green with coach lining and red button upholstery and is fitted with brass sidelamps, an oil rear lamp and a brass horn.
As well as being a proven early starter for the London to Brighton Run this historic veteran is also eligible for all VVC rallies including a number of popular single and twin events as well as Renault Frères events in France and is easily transportable. The car is offered with a current V5, an old style buff logbook, a VCC dating certificate and an extensive history file. Usefully there are also notes on the starting procedure as well as suggested driving technique both backwards and forwards.

Sir Alec Issigonis’ first of many successful designs to reach production, the Morris Minor in its various iterations was among Britain’s best-selling cars for over 20 years, and still today many thousands of them are in regular use, both in this country and across the globe. With excellent handling and surprisingly good performance, particularly in 1098cc form, the Minor is one of the least-taxing classics to drive. Coupled to the excellent spares availability and the fact that there are a multitude of professional Minor specialists, this all makes Minor ownership a particularly attractive proposition. In addition to the two-and-four-door saloons, there was also the Traveller estate, a van and pickup, and perhaps the most sought-after version, the convertible. 
This 1966 example started life as a saloon but has been converted to a convertible at an unknown date. This is not an uncommon process, as demand for convertibles can exceed supply. The car is in good all-round condition, having had considerable expenditure carried out in 2007 including the fitting of new main chassis rails, front cross member, jacking points and much more. It has been fitted with the sensible upgrade of an alternator. A new battery was fitted last year. With this car comes a large quantity of bills for work carried out by previous owners, plus several MOTs and a V5C.

After a hugely successful 9-year production run that put to bed any lingering doubts that VW had made an error by abandoning its traditional air-cooled, rear-engined layout, the Mk.1 Golf was succeeded in 1983 by the Mk.2, which did not change much of the winning formula, but with its more rounded lines brought the model into line with the tastes of the 1980s. Despite increased competition – caused by its predecessor’s success – the Mk.2 sold extremely well, with 6.3 million being produced until the end of production in 1991.
This 1984 CD is a 1600cc example. The vendor is just the second owner; prior to acquisition, it was dry stored for eight years, during which time it was started every day. The vendor has recently fitted a new radiator and new brake pads and discs; it is said to now just require a tune-up. In excellent original condition, this modern classic comes with a manual, additional steering wheel, bills for the work carried out, plus an MOT and a V5C.

The development of the Esprit started in 1971 when Lotus boss Colin Chapman met with Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign to discuss creating a successor for the Europa. Giugiaro got to work, but Chapman was disappointed with the first ¼ scale model and called an early halt to the work. Undeterred, Giugiaro created a full-sized prototype on a stretched Europa chassis, which was exhibited on the Italdesign stand at the 1972 Turin Motor Show. The positive reception for this vehicle changed Chapman’s mind, and the project was back on. Christened the Esprit, the new car was launched at the Paris Motor Show in October 1975, production starting in June 1976. Giugiaro’s ‘folded paper’ styling was new, but the construction of the car was classic Lotus; a steel backbone chassis sported a fibreglass body, there were disc brakes all round, inboard at the rear, and a 160bhp longitudinally-mounted 2-litre Lotus 907 engine sat behind the passenger compartment, driving the rear wheels through a Citroen-sourced 5-speed manual transaxle. This configuration meant a low weight of around 900kg, plus excellent weight distribution. The result was a car that handled superbly, and S1 Esprits are still viewed by many as having the best steering of any version of the long-running model. 
This S1 Esprit is in excellent all-round condition; a thorough restoration was completed eight years ago, and since then the car has remained unused. During the restoration, the body was completely removed from the chassis and repainted, and a completely new interior was fitted. The engine was completely rebuilt, a stainless-steel exhaust was fitted, and the brake pipes were renewed. The heater matrix, oil cooler, fuel tanks and wheels were all refurbished. Now, due to the length of time it has been unused, some recommissioning would be wise before road use. It comes with a workshop manual, some photographs, further history and bills, plus an old-style logbook and a current V5C.

The ZA Magnette was launched in 1953. The first MG car to feature monocoque construction, it was designed by Gerald Palmer – from whose pen had also come the Jowett Javelin, a similarly sporty saloon. The new Magnette represented a dramatic change from the distinctly 1930s Y-Type that MG had been producing; it also featured the first use of BMC’s new B-Series engine, in 1.5 litre form with twin SU carburettors. Producing 60bhp, it drove through an also-new four-speed gearbox, enabling a top speed of around 80mph. With standard leather trim and polished wood dashboard and door cappings, the Magnette even came with the luxury of a heater as standard – by no means a given at the time. 
This 1955 Magnette is offered in need of renovation. The engine runs but is leaking coolant from the water pump. This interesting project comes with a V5C.

By 1934, Austin’s Seven was eleven years old. Eleven years was a long time given the rate of development in automotive design since the early 1920s, but various improvements and updates carried out by Austin ensured that the Seven remained as capable and popular as ever. By 1934, not only was the little car blessed with a 4-speed gearbox – introduced in 1932 – it now had synchromesh on all ratios apart from the bottom two, meaning it was easier to drive than ever before. Saloons were now available with steel bodies – these being cheaper to produce than fabric or aluminium ones – and the lengthened and widened wheelbase introduced in late 1931 meant that the post-vintage Seven was a viable 4-person vehicle, as many thousands of families found out in the 1930s and beyond. 
This 1934 Seven has been restored at some point in the past but is now showing some patina; running and driving, the interior remains in good condition, and this car could either be used as it is or be a rolling project. It comes with a V5C.
