The ASCO Treasurer is John Price, who has held the post since 1997.
He owns a 1933 "Nine" Saloon, which he purchased in 1976 and then took 16 years to restore. John retired in 1997 - he was a radar systems engineer with GEC-Marconi - and has since built himself a fully equipped workshop with lathe and milling machine.
As well as the 1933 Saloon, John has a 1924 Singer 10, which he bought at the Centenary Celebrations at
Stoneleigh Abbey in 2005, and on which he has now carried out a full mechanical restoration, leaving the bodywork as far as possible in its original condition, except for the hood, for which his wife Audrey has made a splendid new cover.
His other major hobby is astronomy, and John has an observatory and several telescopes. In 1996 John was a part-time member of Richard Noble's team which won the World Land Speed Record with the Thrust SSC car. John says the job of treasurer is not particularly difficult and requires, at the most, 30 minutes per month, although there is always a bit of a scramble prior to the AGM to balance the account and prepare a statement for the meeting.
ASCO has an account at the local branch of Lloyds TSB which is especially designed for societies and clubs.
