Launceston is pronounced Laaaansun :D

I saw a prouts sticker on an old landrover and my 67 mini auto was a Pike (exeter). It must have been a resale, because it's reg was PMP101F, which is not a local plate.

My 67 PMP101F had one of those IIRC and some on the sills.

I suspect the V5 got thrown in a drawer and it's now a pristine cooper S.

Hi,

Re. P Pike,
1967 Jaguar 420 purcahsed from P. Pike on the 16th May 1968

I thought your group might be interested in the the above vehicle; which I purchased in December 2015. It was in stoarage untill August 2016, but now is reaching a full restoration. The Jaguar came from P. Pike-Plymouth, I have the origianl log book(Green) and the original hand over certificate issued on 16th May 1968. The vehicle was sold too an Isadore Roseman, of Plymouth

I have also recently managed to purchase from ebay, an original P. Pike leather key ring fob,

Here's a couple of adds taken from an early '60s edition of Motoring Through Britain, an Austin BMC publication. It's a great book for looking at how the roads have changed over the last 50 years. Perhaps one should do a Portillo and use it as a guide for touring Britain.

It looks as though P Pike & Co date from just after WW1. I think that 'P' stood for 'Phil' a keen motorcyclist and it was motorcycles they concentrated on before branching out into cars.

Here are a few newspaper ads I have found from 1919:
