Value My Classic
Reading your 17 October issue, I noticed a small piece about driver Rosemary Smith. This reminded me of my mum, Eileen Bradbury, winning a Shell Oil competition prize back in 1968 – the prize being a brand new Sunbeam Rapier.
I believe that this is Rosemary Smith in the attached photograph, presenting the keys to my mum Eileen, along with dad George, and the car itself. Mum couldn’t drive at the time, but soon took lessons and passed first time!

We’d love to know what happened to the Rapier – there’s no record of it with the DVLA today. Anyone know of its whereabouts? – Ed
