  1. I have reluctantly decided because of ill-heath that my partially restored Doretti will have to have a new owner. The car was being re-built professionally to my personal specification which incorporated a TR4 rear axle and front disc brakes with separate hydraulic brake and clutch systems. A custom heavy duty aluminium fuel tank is also included. The chassis and all the inner steel bodywork have been blasted and re-painted. The steering and suspension have also been restored and a 2" stainless steel exhaust system fitted. A re-built TR2 engine with the correct H6 carbs is installed with a re-

  4. 1294 was built by Walcliffe Motors of North Road, Lancaster and first registered as YTS 286J, which dates from October 1970. In August 1993 the car was "discovered" in a garage where it had been stored for around 20 years awaiting restoration. On completion of the restoration in 1998, the DVLA re-registered the car with the age-related number KSJ 153.
  5. As an ex-owner of a Warwick GT, I’m still interested in the marque. However, it’s only occasionally that there’s a mention of a Warwick on the internet. To help raise the Warwick’s profile, my intention is to set up an on-line Warwick photo gallery. There is no intention of any competition with the P&W Register, it's just my way of helping them to reach out to Warwick owners and enthusiasts. All photos of a Warwick GT or GT350 are welcomed and no personal details are required – it's just going to be a collection of car images. Please send photos to Ken Yankey at: doretti2020@outlook
  6. The negative reaction of of some people to the removal of the Gallery section of my website is understandable. However, after taking into consideration the numerous owners and enthusiasts who have over many years contributed their information, photos and anecdotes, I have decided to re-introduce a modified Cars and Owners Gallery.

  8. Can anyone tell me the location where this photo was taken and a possible date? Ken
  9. I am sorry to belatedly report that Helen Rainbow died on 28th May 2019 in Tockington. Over many years, Helen was closely involved with many of Frank’s activities and after his passing, she willingly shared his photographs and documents with interested persons. In 1994 as the honoured guest at the Swallow Doretti Register’s 40th Anniversary celebration at Eccleshall in Staffordshire, she described it as an emotional occasion and thought it was marvellous to see the dedication and enthusiasm and sheer joy of the owners after all these years. A few years later during a conversation wit
