In re­sponse to Rob Bryant’s let­ter (6 April) ask­ing you not to talk pol­i­tics, I’m happy to read CCW’s views on the pos­si­ble ef­fects on the clas­sic car scene and mar­kets of an exit from Europe.

I im­ported a 1965 Citroën Azu Four­gonnette from Ali­cante, Spain last Septem­ber through a dealer in the Nether­lands and the process was rea­son­ably easy and straight­for­ward.

It would be in­ter­est­ing to know how this work if we were no longer in the EU. Sim­i­larly, I’d wel­come dis­cus­sion on how EU air pol­lu­tion poli­cies would im­pact on non-Euro­pean cars (ie Bri­tish) us­ing Euro­pean roads.

If peo­ple don’t want to read about Brexit pol­i­tics, then they can skip those and move straight on to plenty of


Your Let­ters, The Ed­i­tor, CCW, The car shown in the lovely old black and white pic­ture ( Let­ters, 13 April) is a Mor­ris Mi­nor. The type was cur­rent from 1928-1934 when it was su­per­seded by the Mor­ris Eight pre-se­ries. Nu­mer­ous up­dates were ap­plied to the Mi­nor dur­ing this pe­riod, the most ma­jor be­ing a change from the orig­i­nal sin­gle over­head camshaft en­gine to a side-valve unit of the same 847cc ca­pac­ity from early 1931. Mrs Speechly’s car would have the OHC en­gine cou­pled to a three-speed gear­box, and in fact would have shared all of its me­chan­i­cal el­e­ments with the MG Mid­get sports car, chas­sis in­cluded. Nigel Sten­nett-Cox, North Wal­sham, Nor­folk I was amused that the cover story in the is­sue in which Ja­son Keel­ing wrote to moan about what he sees as too much Ford cov­er­age (13 April) was about... Ford val­ues. I don’t mind read­ing news sto­ries in CCW about Fords, so please keep ’em com­ing. Gor­don Braith­waite, Leeds (Ford Es­cort MkI & MkII owner)
