For some time I have been researching the previous owner of one of my old cars.
Vyrell Mitchell was the first owner of my Lotus Cortina and he bought it new when he was working At Shoreham. He was a pilot involved in sales and I was wondering if the brand new car made it into any of the Beagle Aircraft advertising.
Vyrell later moved to a position of sales manager for CSE at Oxford. They were the Piper agents in the UK at that time. He sold the car to it's only other owner sometime during 1968. The car failed a MoT in 1972, 6 years on the road and 103,000 miles.
What has amazed me is the rapidly expanding amount of material available on the Internet now. When I first started the research back in the mid-90's there was just a few articles. I saw a video clip of the Arrow crash just a day ago, very first time I was aware of any footage.
