A call for com­mon sense

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Re­gard­ing the mat­ter of test­ing driv­ers over the age of 70 ( CCW, 26 April), surely there are good and bad driv­ers in all age cat­e­gories? I am 82 years old and my first car in 1953 was a 1934 Mor­ris Isis.

On Drive-It Day my wife Paula and I went on a tour of the For­est of Dean in our 1930 Ford Model A Coupé. We have been ral­ly­ing con­tin­u­ously for 55 years.
