WHICH RI­LEY WOULD YOU HAVE?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

KEITH ADAMS ED­I­TOR

Ri­ley Pathfinder. Gor­geous styling, penned by one of the UK’s most un­der­rated de­sign­ers, Ger­ald Palmer, and bet­ter han­dling than its ‘ditchfinder’ nick­name sug­gests.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR

The Ri­ley Elf is al­most as pretty as Rachel Ri­ley. It’s as fun to drive as a Mini, too – it’s nice and dif­fer­ent. If there’s not enough room for a Bent­ley, then the Elf’s a wise choice.

GER­VAIS SEY­MOUR PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR

My favourite al­bum is Tred­din’ on

Thin Ice. It’s a fab­u­lous lis­ten – look it up. Ah, you meant Ri­ley, not Wi­ley. Sorry ev­ery­one.

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CI­ATE ED­I­TOR

The Ri­ley IS Sa­loon cap­tured some of the style and so­phis­ti­ca­tion of the com­pany’s 1930s cars. I’d con­sider one for my garage.

DAVID SIMISTER FEA­TURES ED­I­TOR

The 12/4 Kestrel from the 1930s. It’s one of the most beau­ti­ful sa­loons ever to come out of Bri­tain – yet I’ve seen them at VSCC events do­ing plucky things across tough ter­rain.

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR

A Kestrel for me, too. For added points I’d like a CKD kit car from New Zealand to con­fuse the DVLA.

CALUM BROWN WEB PRO­DUCER

Ri­ley Elf. It’s a posh Mini – like putting Janette Krankie in a frock.
