Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Ire­ally en­joyed reading Andrew Roberts’ ar­ti­cle about the 1959 Monte Carlo line-up at Dover ( The Way We

Were, CCW, 1 Fe­bru­ary). The Stan­dard van is the of­fi­cial Miche­lin ser­vice van. It must have been a jolly sight in its eye-catch­ing yel­low cor­po­rate liv­ery. No won­der it fea­tures in so many rally pho­tos of the pe­riod.

A mi­nor de­tail of in­ter­est to fel­low en­thu­si­asts – ‘ Tiny’ Lewis’s car is a Stan­dard Pen­nant and has his own reg­is­tra­tion num­ber, TL5. Tony Pounder, Bath www.stan­dard­8n10s­
