Tealers may have noticed that our favourite cars are now being called Bugatti Type 35 Tributes on certain websites.  here's an example: 




 and a photo:






Regulars on this website know that this is a Teal Type 35.  They may be surprised at the date it is claimed to be made (one shouldn't mistake the date of the donor car's registration) and they know roughly what it's worth. The asking price is £64,500.

Backbone of England Run Pennines - Teal Type 35 - Mike Astill 







Joyce Astill, Tealer wife of Mike of Grimsditch Hall fame (where many Teals were built by Bob Jones between 1994 and 1998), is also a dab hand in the kitchen. She baked this delicious Teal Pie at their converted barn for Bob Jones and Joan, and Tealers Mary and Jeff Turner.  Bob assures us that no Teals were harmed in the making or devouring of said pie.  Eat your heart out, Great British Bake Off....






Mary and Big Jeff in their immaculate 6C/2500cc Teal Type 35 boat tail  in the Pennines. Beyond, Mike Astill pulls on his flying helmet for the next leg into the hills.  The sun shone luckily down on us,  so at back Chairman Bob wore his shorts, lucky red shirt and shades...

....and round a sharp left-hander up  into the hills 


For the full story of  the Teal Pennine Run 1 under the guidance of Dot and Phil, please see the index page  of this website at left and select  Teal Backbone Tour.  And then  look out for the most unusual British 50s sports car that joined us... 






What is the mystery car? 

















Is this the almost-perfect profile?  How would you improve on Bob Jones' original Teal Type 35 design?   










Should these badges be reversed?  Or only one shown?   Teals were, of course, originally  inspired by Bugatti, but it might be argued that the proven quality, design and durability of Teal cars over the past 30 years plus (as well as the terrific fun they create) justify the Teal badge now being shown proudly on its own. True?

QUIZ ANSWERS - 31 December 2017 


The Quiz has been well answered by those consumate quizzers Rupert and Vince - congratulations: Q1 Goodwood, March, Riley-Teal 35 - MGA; Q2: ?? Q3. No, not a Type 59, which didn't have an external gearlever - probably a Type 35 or 37 Bugatti:  Q4  Alvis;    Q5. French, Amilcar,  about 1925.  Which only leaves the lovely sweeping lines of the Burgundy-coloured car at Q2 outstanding. Here's a photo of the front as well:





Yes, it's an Aston Martin, a 15/98 model, built between 1934-1939 ; KMP 168  was registered in May 1939 and is powered by a 1968 cc motor  according to the DVLA website. Rather a beauty...







Scottish Borders 



Soon after Tealers crossed the Scottish Border near Jedburgh a few years ago, we pulled in to a lakeside (lochside) cafe after a longish, exhilarating run, for a drink and a picnic.  We were accompanied by a fine Austin Healey 3000 (the photo car), which made for a colourful picture in itself....





At back right Ian and Lavinia are getting out the kettle ready for a brew....

We had formed up to start out one morning in a supermarket car park but unfortunately Dot and John  hadn't  told Roger and Carola their fine four-seater was going for a bargain ...







For the  full, happy story of the 2009 Lakes and Borders tour, see index at left - lots of fine photos, and more on the page Teals in Action. Thanks, Tealers.













Our Club Secretary Andy informs us of the sad news that very early Tealer Ernest Neil (above with his son Roger and Teal Azzurro Uccello - Blue Bird ) has passed away.   Ernest, aged 85, was from High Wycombe, built his Teal himself with the help of son Roger, and all three were seen at many Teal events down the last 30 years including Brooklands, the Uxbridge Classic Car  Show and Spider Run 1.  Blue Bird herself  is still with Ernest's family. 









Jean and Rupert in Grasshopper led Tealers on a happy Sussex/Surrey run from Petersfield, on the Hampshire/Sussex borders through (not necessarily in this order) the South Downs to Petworth, around Bosham Harbour on the Channel coast,  into Chichester, up to the Devil's Dyke , to Bramber near Worthing (where Jean grew up) and later north into Surrey...








At high tide this road round Bosham Harbour is under water; Jean had carefully studied her tide tables, and timed our arrival when only a ridge of seaweed in the middle of the road impeded progress - and all our cars' bottoms received a thorough cleaning with salted seaweed  - here David and Sharon follow Jean and Rupert...  





Grasshopper was looking particularly sporty  and






 In Petworth  Angelo and Antonio greet Sharon and David (and is that Harry from Essex in the far background?) while in the foreground Glen was keen to get his leg over in his Sensible Teal  which...





in the bright southern sunlight could almost be called Violet.





Jean had arranged a coffee (or T and P) stop in a delightful country pub in the South Downs, with roses round the path from the car park... 






where David's Dolly and  Grasshopper made a nice pair , and







Tealers Irene, Colin, Sharon and David enjoy their coffee and Colin... 





...ensured he wasn't caught short on the next leg. 




Rupert, our leader





Francesca poses before Rupert's Grasshopper; the man himself gently reminds her that her transport is the modest MG next door 




Harry and Carol from Essex were there, keen Club members who have taken part enthusiastically in many Teal runs in the UK, France and Spain in their throaty Replicar , the merits of which.... 



 Harry discussed with Colin. Actually the LHD Replicar went rather well, considering it appeared to be powered by...






a somewhat-surprising 750-watt microwave oven under the bonnet.



 (the Replicar is,of course, a VW-based replica with a rear engine) 






A couple of wimps (Brian and Colin) had come in cars with hoods; the weather forecast was variable, but in fact the hoods were not needed.... 





The rest of the line-up were admirable 





David and Sharon on the turn, with Angelo and Antonio close behind





Into the sun: Replicar silhouette, with Harry and Carol 





When we ended up by the sea at Bosham Harbour there was talk of taking a ferry to the other side; but instead we stood and chatted and watched the rising tide; but Colin insisted it was time for ...







...his afternoon cup of tea and slice of cherry pie in Chichester; Colin  generously gave me a piece too. 






Our trip ended at a fine car show  over the border into Surrey, where we were warmly received; actually the make of the day there was TRIUMPH.  There were lots of Heralds, Spitfires and Stags on show - and David's Teal  has a Triumph engine...


We rounded off our trip on a wagon towed by a steam engine... 






This was a happy few days together; thank you Jean and Rupert and all Tealers for your company and photos.
























There is a long-standing tradition in The Netherlands in the run-up to Christmas of children dressing up as Zwarte Piet, apparently a close helper of Santa Claus at this busy time; here Aaldert shows his fine Teal Type 35 surrounded by such children of all ages, both inside and outside the Teal...which itself would make a grand toy sleigh... (for information, in a recent opinion poll 92% of the Dutch supported the continuation of this old tradition, with 8% against).


Thanks, Aaldert

Bugatti Type 44 - Goodwood Revival 












At first glance there are two Teals and four Tealers in this Oxfordshire photo - Dot, Phil saluting the photographer, Maggie and The Captain. But wait - what are those red mudguards - yes, it's Vital Spark, with Neil Ramsay - because this is the Oxford Run of 2012 organised by Colin and Irené Andrews, with a Bugatti to view in their village and a cross-country run to an historic stately home (and fete) at Henley.... a delightful few days.





 Ah, there he is - Vicky's up front in Puddle Jumper navigating for Colin...

Cheerful Tealers Colin, Vicki, Neil, Irené, Dot, Francesca and Phil; and that looks like a glimpse of Vital Spark's boat-tail in one of Colin's garages (top right)... 





Well-aligned and colourful Teals and Tealers - add Chris and Yvonne and Brian and Francesca and a cheerful long weekend ensued.  Thanks to Colin  and Irené  for good food, routes and company...










 In 1989 Bob Jones launched the first of thirteen ultra-fast, Jaguar-powered Teal Type 59s on an unsuspecting world.  Here he is road-testing the first Type 59.

Luckily one of the finest Type 59s belongs to our own TOC member David Brown of Hertfordshire, and is often driven to shows, rallies and get-togethers, much to our enjoyment:





















What a beauty! Happy Tealing, David, Janice and George....




















 Why is Club Chairman Bob reeling across the car park while Club Secretary Andy, wife June, Sharon and Phil look on, surprised?


Reason:  Bob was doing his good deed for the day: Andy had some temporary starting problems, now long fixed, and Bob had just given him a push start, and was recovering from  the rapid ignition of La Tecla's powerful Triumph 6C/2500 engine... 














Answers on the Discussion Forum page, please 



ANSWER:  Bob Jones wrote to say that as part of his 1986-1987 upgrading of the Teal Type 35 with modified chassis and aluminium bodywork  he decided that new, larger, wire wheels were required for handling and looks, and he commissioned Motor Wheel Services of Slough and Manchester to make them and the hub fittings.  This is the first Teal Type 35 to be fitted with the new 18-inch Wire Wheels with which we are now so familiar.  At a rough estimate maybe 500 such wheels and fittings have been purchased from MWS.









Rob Lewis and Isadora.  Rob is one of the great original heroes of the Teal movement, building Isadora and many other Teal Type 35s and Type 59s, setting up a company to build fine classic replica 1930s delivery vans, making nearly every handbrake on nearly every Teal,  losing it all, selling Isadora, and years later buying her back, setting up a most successful firework business, and seen at many classic car shows such as Prescott and Goodwood , showing the flag for Teals. We salute your many successes and your deep contribution to the Teal story, Rob.







Another  major hero of the happy Teal story is Mike Astill, seen here with Joyce on the Backbone of England Run in the Pennines in 2010.  In 1994, when times had become difficult financially to keep Teal production going during a period of recession, Mike offered Bob Jones the use of his premises at Grimsditch Hall in Cheshire, where Bob was able to carry on production of Type 35s and Type 59s in the splendid outbuildings...

Above are just two of the heroes of the Teal story, enabling Ian Foster and Bob Jones to continue creating these beautiful cars - another is Ben Trumble, whose thrilling story can be read on the pages of this website - see index on left ... and there are many more Teal heroes.  If you own, maintain, cherish and drive a Teal, you are one of them.

They are with Ian and Maggie Foster's original  GRP-bodied Type 35 'HKA' then re-bodied for Ian in aluminium by Bob Jones in 1987.  This fine Teal  was later purchased and enjoyed by Keith Lidgerwood  of Cheshire, who kindly let me try this legendary Teal out 25 years later  on several  sessions around the rural roads of that county; she  goes like the wind, with positive steering and acceleration....but with slightly confusing  6 identical unmarked switches  low on the dashboard - including ignition on/off and wipers on/off...                                          b.c.

Today, 5th November 2017, is the London to Brighton for Veteran Cars.  Tealers were there to greet these old classics at Crawley, about the half way point on the sunlit 2017 run; Tealers included Rupert and Jean, Andy Dutton, Shropshire John and Wendy and David Ward. Some of these are classics in their own right.  One Tealer (your correspondent) lives quite near Brighton, so was there to welcome the  mechanical pioneers, many over 100 years old (the cars I mean) at the finish of their 50-mile plus run  on Madeira Drive....


Afternote:   Sadly we hear that there was a collision on Reigate Hill which ended with a 1902 Mercedes upside down in the ditch, and two folk badly injured.   






Several Tealers have taken part in the annual Kit Car London to Brighton run, an occasion of some merriment with many and various machines, including elegant Teals; and those owning MGs will know the annual MG London to Brighton from Epsom Racecourse to Madeira Drive - some lovely old MGs appear for this splendid rally/run.  It doesn't really matter whether your sporting car is 100 years old or 10, it's the fun and cameraderie of the event that matters, isn't it?

Actress Mena Suvari beside her 'Bugatti'  in the film of Ernest Hemingway's novel 'The Garden of Eden'.   In Paris the young newlyweds depart for a long honeymoon in steamy Spain, driving in style in the Bugatti given to him by her as a wedding present.

This Teal/Bugatti has not been MOTd or taxed in the UK since 2007 (the film was released in 2008), so is presumably still on the continent, hopefully being used and loved.  Thanks D.W. 





















CLASSIC CAR QUIZ: 1) What make of car is this below? 2)  Is it Foreign?  3)  Approximately what year was it built?















Answers on the Discussion Forum, please.   Lovely, isn't she? 



ANSWER:  She's a LAGONDA RAPIER , built in November 1934 with an 1104 cc motor and spotted at a country car show near Salisbury.   Well done those classic experts Vince and Andy - spot on with your  car recognition.  Here she is from the front:







PS: DAVID WARD also knew the answer to this quiz, and gave us a useful tip; if you know the registration number of any UK car, enter it on the website below and it will tell you when the car was made, first date of registration, engine and whether it is MOTd and taxed.  In the case of most Teals it will tell you the date of first registration of the donor car.  Try it on your car(s). Endless fun!

CAPTAIN SENSIBLE:  See his terrific Teal tales at page 57,  one page from the end of this website
And now , at last, a little bit about this website, its contents and why it was set up .

Welcome to SKYBLUETEAL, the website for lovers of Teal cars, fine British sports cars full of character, lovely to look at and a delight to drive.


There are many photos of owners' cars on the website as we build up a visual record of every Teal we can find in Teal of The Week (TOW), and   we explain  a little of the history of  Ettore Bugatti, the legendary designer and manufacturer  whose  delightful  and highly successful racing and touring cars of the 1920s and 1930s inspired Teal cars. The history of Teal cars is detailed with many historic photos, and there are pages showing the building of Teal T35, T43, T44  and T59 cars in the 'factory' .


Just for fun, there is a   tour of a fine  Continental Teal T35 (Dutch Treat) and of  a lovely Teal from Dorset (Black Beauty).    Features include a  page of Tealing in the  pioneer years of the 1980s, photos of Teals and Tealers in Wales and Yorkshire on the 2008 Triangle Run, the Lake District and Scottish Borders on the June 2009 Rally,  illustrations of  the building of  Teal cars at home,   and picture reviews of the wonderful variety of Teal  cockpits, dashboards and tails.   There's a special page on the Teal Owners' Club (TOC),  detailing  how to join the Club, and the many Club benefits.    The exciting  annual   Circuit des Remparts at Angouleme is covered, and  Teals in Action 2009  shows our Teal cars where they are meant to be:  on the road;  there's full coverage of The Teal 2010 Backbone of England Rally, and there are stirring Teal Tales of Captain  Sensible campaigning  in Britain, France,  Spain, Germany Switzerland and the Netherlands,  and also new Teal News pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10,11,12,13 and 14 with dozens of snippets of the latest information about Teals and Tealers, and reports of our Teal adventures and rallies in 2007,2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 , 2016  and 2017 in Sussex and Hampshire, Kent, East Anglia,   Lancashire, The Peak District, Shropshire and Herefordshire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, Wales and unusual adventures in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, as well as overseas trips to much of Europe including France, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain and  Portugal.  We hope you enjoy these tales which are an excuse to enjoy our lovely Teals, and eachothers' company... Do join us at The Teal Owners' Club (you don't have to own a Teal) - email our Club Membership Secretary at dot.massey@btinternet.com

- you'll be most welcome. 


 Perhaps you already own a Teal, or maybe you might be considering buying and  driving a Teal one day; either way, it's a rewarding and exciting experience ..... we welcome you to the vivid world of Teal cars.  














To purchase an original vintage 1920s Bugatti such as the legendary Types 35 or 37 would cost  between £250,000 and £500,000; with an authentic racing pedigree, the price of such a car would be well above a million pounds. Bugatti cars of the 1920s and 1930s command such a high premium because of their rarity, the engineering skill of their designer, Ettore Bugatti (see page 3),  the beauty of their lines and their outstandingly successful record as racing cars over  the two decades before World War 2.

The Teal Type 35 was designed in 1983, and much  refined in the late  80s and 90s, to provide a car with the Bugatti's beauty and performance at an affordable price.  To drive  a Teal behind the twin racing aero screens is an exhilarating (and windy!)  experience, since suspension, steering, handling and exhaust note are all successfully optimised  to replicate as far as possible the exciting sensations of 1920s open-air  motoring.   More details of  Teal history, design, construction, engines, suspension,  and some  estimated  prices   are given at page 2.
