Austin 7

The Austin 7, produced by the Austin Motor company from 1922 to 1939, was the car which brought car ownership to people in Great Britain in much the same way as the Ford Model T did for Americans in the USA. Several of these cars took part in the Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run organised by the Lancashire Automobile Club in May 1992 and below are photographs of two of those cars taken at the starting point for the run on the Exchange Station approach, opposite Manchester Cathedral.
