Among the older cars at the show were many from the Austin family. The cream and burgandy saloon is an Austin 10 built in 1934 sporting a 10hp engine. The blue convertible is an Austin 7 Tourer Chummy built 10 years earlier in 1924. The Austin 20 rounds off this trio. Having a 3600cc engine it was originally built in 1926 as a tourer but converted to a pick-up for farm use.

A less common make was this Alvis 12/60 Beetleback built in 1931 with a 1645cc engine. It was restored to this superb condition of a period of 5 years.

Looking a bit like something Al Capone might of driven - this is in fact a British rover with the Viking mascot on the radiator. A model 16 Sports Saloon built in 1939, the body was completely restored around the original 16.9hp engine.
