Hardly. It doesn't roll off the tongue (nor the production line) quite like 'Brian James'. They were well made, though, and towed beautifully.

The first car trailer that I had was made by Mike Cannon (Cannon Trials Cars) as he lived not to far up the road. He made them to order and they towed well.
I remember that he used any axles that he could get hold of from the local scrap yard and mine had one from a Mk 2 Consul complete with the hydraulic brakes and master cylinder.
A mate of mine had his trailer stolen at The Ring back in the 60s and had to leave his Elan there. He drove back the next week with a borrowed trailer to recover it. Trailer stealing is nothing new !
