“Make way for quality!”

This Alvis TC100 “Grey Lady” drophead coupe was once owned by RAF ace Sir Douglas Bader. After surviving a horrific plane crash in 1931, Bader had both legs removed and was retired from flying duties. However during WW2, he returned to active service and became a legend during the Battle of Britain. Bader bought the 104bhp TC100 in 1954 and specified it with a two pedal automatic transmission. He would reportedly shout “Make way for quality!” when behind the wheel and kept the car until his death in 1982.
