Transport Festival 2011 cars

Bill Consterdine's story about important car anniversaries on 31st March missed the most important anniversary of all.

On 21st July 1922, the Austin Seven was unveiled at a reception at Claridges Hotel in London. This was the first British "car for the masses", costing £120.

Around 300,000 were built up to 1939, in various shapes and sizes. Indeed, the first BMW was an Austin 7 built under licence.

So let's hear it for 90 years of the Austin Seven at the Audlem Transport Festival on 29th July!

This is the pic of 2011 Festival, with plenty of Austin Sevens to be seen, led by an Audlem resident!
