Back in the day, 1954-61 to be precise,  Chalfont St Peter was at the heart of small-time car manufacturing with the Fairthorpe car company, built if my memory serves me well in what is now the Co-Op.


I had a red Electron Minor, basic but fun.

There is one being advertised for sale for an unbelievable £16k


If you click the pictures in the advert to the right, you can see on the third picture the manufacturing plate showing Chalfont St Peter

Wow, I never knew that. I'll have to check through my bits and bobs to see if I have anything on them.

Hissing Sid

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

I'm glad Hissing Sid has a good memory because I had forgotten that we had discussed Fairthorpe cars before!
