Timelines: October 1914,

Once again, Graeme Rice looks back on the motoring worlds of 100, 75, 50, and 25 years ago

1914The imposing foyer of Argyll’s Alexandria Works building

October 1914

After the glory of the Alex Govan years (1899 -1907) and the trauma of the debilitating court case against Charles Knight over their unique sleeve valve design, pioneer UK manufacturer Argyll moved out of the elaborate Alexandria works in Glasgow, selling the works off to the Admiralty, who promptly started making torpedoes there. Moving out from the Alexandria works must have been quite sobering for the Argyll managers, who would have become accustomed to their ornate terracotta façade, marble entrance hall and marble toilets.

Progress on the De Lorean — behind garage doors

It’s amazing what people get up to behind their garage doors.

Having owned this De Lorean for eight years in stock-standard condition, the owner finally decided to bite the bullet and take the step to do a BTTF version after his mock up at the Ellerslie Concours was so well received.

We thought you’d like to see some progress. He hasn’t drilled any holes in the stainless steel either.
