Default Hi this is Darrell in England

My name is Darrell and I live in Hampshire in England. I own a rare 1939 Standard Flying Eight Tourer called " STAN "
I am the Publicity Officer for the Standard Motor Club which is a world wide club for Standard owners, offering technical and parts support.
It is NOT run for profit.

You can view my own web site at

If I can be of any help to Standard owners in India please email me

There are links on my web site to two you tube videos I created to show what it feels like to be a passenger in STAN.

Along with other 8 owners I use my car to raise money for good causes.

Hope to hear from you soon

Welcome Darrel. Your car is a legend

In my childhood, my ambition was to own Standard 2000, the only aerodynamic car available in India during that days. Then came the Maruti 1000 i believe.
