Malcolm Campbell had a succession of Darracq racing cars in the 1920s, which in the fashion of the day he had named 'Flapper I' , 'Flapper II' and 'Flapper III' . It was 'Flapper III' which he re-named Bluebird, famously and impetuously raising a paint shop owner at night, so as to purchase blue paint before racing at Brooklands the following day.
In 1925, he also raced an Itala at Brooklands with the name 'The Blue Bird' painted on the bonnet.
The hydroplane K4 began life as Malcolm's "Blue Bird", but when Donald decided to use her in 1949, after his father's death, he re-named her "Bluebird".
