A correction to last month's addition to the Unique Features section of Interesting Ys, in that the knob previously identified as being for antenna adjusting to improve the directional reception of Medium and Long wave radio signals is in fact a knob for folding down the antenna so that the car can clear the doors on low garages!  Apologies for any mis-leading information previously.

Phil Stafford takes centre stage with this month's Picture of the Month of his Y Special, YT 4608 taken in April 2007.

The Reprinted Article jumps back to August 1948 and is an extract from a little known publication called Measham Magazine.
