Nice! Fraser Nashes were chain driven hence they were referred to as "The Chain Gang"
Back in 1970 I was in Ramsey, IOM with my Square Four when a fellah came out of a shop with his shopping and said "Ah, a Square Four, I've got one of those, do you want to see it?".
Silly question, so I followed him home . . Through enormous iron gates . . Down a long drive . . to a mansion. This was Milntown Manor, ancient seat of the Christian family - of Fletcher Christian of the 'Bounty' fame.
My host was Bob Thomas, Chairman of the IOM Section of the VMCC, and what a collection of bikes and cars he had
Amongst them was the Fraser Nash that Stirling Moss and Dennis Jenkinson had driven in the mille migula
of 195x. What a beautiful car
Bob had a 1936 Iron Head 1000 Square. It was missing an oil pressure gauge. I found one at the VMCC Somerset Section Autojumble and took it to Bob the following year.
Whilst there, I was introduced to a tall, gaunt lady who was hoeing onions, she was Marjory Cottle
. She was amazed that a 24-year-old had heard of her and her successes as Female Sidecar Trials Champion in the '30s. Back then it paid to read "Motorcycle Sport" from cover to cover
