Stag Adventure to Spain

Many thanks to Roy Smith for his Stag Tales in Spain….

I thought that I would start by sharing a picture of my wife’s Boobies. She took the picture in March 2012 on Ascension Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean (near the equator) when we were warming up on a break from my Civil Service job supporting the British Forces in the South Atlantic in the Falklands.


It was later that day that – without any understanding of either the subsequent financial or social life changing consequences – she tossed me a 2008 copy of Classic Car magazine that she had found in the converted portakabin that we were staying in. As I browsed through, I came across an advert by Cherished Classics of Leicester who specialize in the Triumph Stag. I had admired the Stag since its launch – regrettably I am old enough to remember those days – but had never been in one or even had a close look. Heading for retirement, the following year I quite fancied the thought of something to enjoy after I left work and after discussing this with my wife Sandra we set about investigating the possibility of ownership then. Once a year, I was entitled to return to UK with my wife – the Ministry of Defence being all heart – and I wrote to Lee Court of Cherished Classics and explained that I would appreciate it if he would allow us to visit his showroom in May as he opened only “by appointment” on Saturdays – the day that the flight arrived at Brize Norton. I also explained that we were not in the market at the time but were interested. I am sure that he thought that we were just “time wasters” and initially put us off. I persevered and eventually he agreed to our visit. Sandra and I had done a little homework, looking at various websites and had concluded that we would particularly like a yellow or red Stag, one with solid rather than wire wheels as these are too difficult to keep clean. We didn’t want white.

Win Percy - Sideways In A D-Type! ICMR
Win Percy, 'Win 1' now published!

I am delighted to tell you that the long awaited book about the life of CCCA member, Win Percy, has finally been published. Called simply 'Win 1', it is a story of the amazing life of a very unassuming and modest racer.  'Win Percy is known throughout the racing world for his remarkable natural talent as a driver, his determination on the track, his sense of fair play and his many international successes. He is also respected by all as a delightful human being'. Written by his long-time pal, Spike Anderson.  We are very proud to have him as active member of the CCC of A.  Win has a small number of books here in Spain which can be bought direct from him. He brings about 20 or 30 at a time back from the UK on his flights so numbers here are limited. The book is available through EBay and, I assume, Amazon. I have a copy and, I can tell you, it is a hell of a read and a beautiful book to own.alt
