Value My Clas­sic

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

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
