My Austin A40 Devon 1200cc 4 Door Classic Car was the product of salvaging three old cars my father had bought as spare-parts bombs. It was a labour of love to take the gearbox from the blue one, the motor and diff from the green one and fit them onto the black sedan. The original finish needed only to be buffed to a showroom shine and the old girl passed her roadworthy first try.
I was proud to drive her everywhere and to watch the people stop and stare as I drove past. Sure she was... (read more)
