Description: When Mr. Oldcastle receives an auction catalogue through the post, and sees that Gumdrop is one of the vehicles due to be auctioned, he jumps at the chance to be reunited with his old car.
Unfortunately, he is outbid by the Mr. Banger (the local car dealer), who promptly sells the car to Archibald Gridline – who intends to race it at Silverstone. But the car just isn't fast enough for him, and so Gumdrop embarks on a strange journey which sees him being passed through several different owners until – through a lucky turn of fate – he ends up back with Mr. Oldcastle.
Val Biro's wonderful watercolours adorn every page.
