    1937 BSA Scout

    We just got back from England visiting my wife's family. One of her first cousins still own this 1937 BSA Scout... though the only photo I got was from WAY back (maybe early or mid-60s).

    Wow - that is a very cool car. Knew nothing about those until you posted this.

    Just wondering out loud, but wasn't there a four-seat Scout?

    Thanks.

    It was the Forest Grove Concourse show (near us) a couple of yearsago, and a nicely restored one at that.
    The car was really a rather advanced concept, a bit ahead ofits time. No CV joints, so I’m told that with any noticeable steering angle thevariations in the geometry of the hook-joint FWD shafts gave an “amusing”low-frequency vibration through the steering.
    Pretty desirable classic now, and a quite a pretty car.
