CARS AND THE ROAD
OPENING OF THE MOTORIST’S TOURING SEASON
SOME NOTES ON CARS AND EQUIPMENT
Although motoring has moods and modes,
it may be said to have no tenses.
No term of the calendar bans the motorist’s enjoyment.
He holds the key of the open road,
and can translate time and place with such facility
that the will and the opportunity
to exchange summer for winter,
or winter for summer,
are his only barriers.
These, in many instances, are so all-sufficient that,
while motoring is an all-the-year-round pastime,
touring has largely become
a matter of inviting weather and holiday periods.
Standing, as we do, on the threshold of Whitsuntide,
we are at the beginning of the recognised
a few observations on touring and touring cars
will not be inappropriate.
There are two essentials to an enjoyable tour-
a reliable car and a skilled and careful driver.
Given these, no holiday,
however brief or broken,
no country, however bald and uninteresting,
fails to yield some pleasure.
Without one or both of the pleasure,
like the orchard-robbing urchin’s adventure,
is a fearful joy.
Happily, both can be arranged with a certitude to-day
which renders enjoyment inevitable-
given a good itinerary and fair weather.
With the resources of the touring departments
of the Automobile Association,
The Royal Automobile Club,
and the Motor Union at his disposal,
the British motorist has only himself to blame
if his route is ill-chosen
or his arrangements insufficient.
As a member of the A.A.,
I can cordially recommend its touring bureau
to any motorist desiring to travel
at home or abroad.
His itinerary will be planned for him,
and minute instructions provided
to enable him to deal easily and effectively
with the ordinary incidents of foreign travel;
while its admirable handbook
is a motorist’s vade mecum
to the enjoyment of touring in the British Isles.
Our way is thus cleared to consider
the motor-car itself.
