The start of a great marque...................

Austin Seven Swallow - Milestone

And with it's sister Austin Sevens.

The Swallow Sidecar Company morphed into Jaguar via SS Cars.

What a great little model! Every time I see a 1:1, I'm amazed by its diminuitive size... must've been intimidating to encounter a lorry on the street in one.

Yes, Austin named their even more diminuitive Mini the Seven.

I remember dragging my daughter along to a classic car show in a local park. "Is it real?" she asked upon seeing the 7 was such a diminutive size. More like a pedal car than a viable mode of transport.

The Packard is a nide step in the evolution from real woody (with structural woodwork) to mock woody. I love the shape and colour and if Ixo would do a woody PW, I would buy every issue.

I think that particular Packard had the nickname, the pregnant elephant. One can see why although I always liked them.

That car never deserved that awful, nay, hideous bit grafted on after the 'B' post... Sorry David but I have to avert my eyes on this one. :? Nice colour though! :D

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

A bit of a mess really but quite an interesting mess! At Premium X prices I think I'm going to have to add this.

What a way to destroy the P1800. The designer needs a slap for that.

My sentiments exactly. Why not do that to a 914 instead?

Great model and a very nice design. I would almost have thought it was from later in the 60s.

More Italian than Aston but none the worse for it. Really elegant.
