Bill Young now has the floor as he (quickly) got two out of three of the proprietors.

The third owner was Jack Jenkins.

Rick, I can't think of anything to ask, didn't figure I'd be the winner on this one. I'll have to ask my friends from St. Louis about Jack, that's a name I've never heard before. If anyone else has a question please go ahead and take the floor. I'll try to come up with something soon if not.

Attended a small British Car show today and took some photos of a vehicle which I had never seen before - so, I'll share a couple of shots and make it a trivia question.........name the car & year of mfr. No clues to start with.........

You should have blanked out the text on the front. That would have made it a bit harder. It's a Ford Capri. Clearly it has a bodykit added. Since that says "Tickford", and the car has a turbocharger in it, it's not hard to say that it's a "Tickford Capri". Probably has Turbo in there somewhere too. iirc, Tickford were owned by AM - not sure if that's what you were looking for here...


Year is a guess, but it's going have to be early 80's, so let's try 83.

Alan - I was hoping the fascia text was suitably undiscernible, but apparently I wuz wrong!
It is indeed a 1986 (titled in 1988) Aston Martin Capri Tickford w/ a turbocharged 2.8L Ford - this is the last one of only 100 made.
I'm sure Wikipedia et al will have more detailed information on this collaboration between AM and Ford.

Here's a quick and easy one: What British car manufacturer was named after the founder's birthplace in Ohio?

I don't want to have to pose a question, but I do know that answer to Alan's though, the plus side of subscribing to Classic and Sports Car for so many year. How about you other guys?

If it's what I think, the company that I worked for for 34+ years has a factory there - been there a few times.

I thought this would have been answered in no time.
I'll give you a clue.
It's not Tickford, but it would have been a good guess, based on the relative histories.

Well, I think International Trucks has a factory in Springfield Ohio.

Was there a British car company called "Springfield"?

Not a car company named "Springfield" but you are certainly in the right neck of the Buckeye woods.

Dan has to ask the next question.


The rest of the answer can be found here: Lagonda car company was named for the river that runs through Springfield Ohio.

In the early 60s, the TRIUMPH AWARD was presented to the MVP of what athletic contest, and what did the player receive as his award?
