Great looking car. Just use the indicators that god gave you.
Thomas,lovely Car.Dont think my Daughter's Car has those fancy gadgets as well,if it has she's only had 12 Month's and not found them yet.
If it was mine I would have put two bricks under its wheels while its on that hill.
Well done to the owner(s), it certainly looks in good shape. A lesson to be learnt by VW?
Would using Highway Code hand signals today be understood by everyone???
Nice little car, nice piccy.
Oh, that's lovely!
Nice Gillopy, bet it's seen some sights
see it round aspull
Thomas you forgot to mention that there was no syncromesh on the gears! That was the greatest difficulty in driving these cars. My first car HAD electric wipers but like this the other things were missing. It was written off when someone didn't understand the hand signals.... or perhaps they were too busy talking! and that was 43 years ago Anne.
Nice shot, and lovely little car too. I think the last time I recall seeing an Austin like it was on Wigan Rd in Ashton a few years ago, and I believe it's been seen around the area from time to time. Hope the owner uses it as it should instead of just being shoved into a heated garages throughout most of the year and never get to be driven except on meets, shows or special occasions; too many classic/vintage cars just never get used. I wonder if this car attends the classic car meet at the Corner House pub in Wrightington, they have a classic meet 1st Sunday of every month. Been to it a couple of times this year and it was a great turnout, plenty of vintage and classics, E Type Jags, Austin Healey's, Ferrari's, Caterham/Lotus 7s, MGB/Midgets, Jensen's, etc.
Lovely Tom, that must have been a joy to ride in that.
If you don't get your hand right on the starting handle, it can rip the joints out of your hand and fingers.
It's whats known as kick back.
I used to live in that house a number of years ago.
Isn't it strange... we can still drive machines that have no real safety devices. No seat belts. Anti-locking brakes, air-bags, etcetera. Yet, if we drove a modern car without seat-belts fastened, we'd be hit with a fine. Weird and eccentric rules ....
