About Me

My mother owned an Austin Eight Tourer - HPP 226 - around 1960. I'm hoping that information might emerge on this car

About Me

I have an Austin 8, 6 light saloon first registered late 1939 /or March 1940 but have no further detail of ownership until 1984. I have owned it for a number of years but restoration has bee a bit hit and miss due to my lack of knowledge and being let down by people I thought could do the job properly. 

I am retired, married with three grown up children.

My name is umer and I own an Austin 8 tourer. Took around 10 years to restore the original engine and the body of the vehicle. Still a long way to go to complete it.

About Me

    I live in Te Kauwhata, in tthe North Waikato of New Zealand and retired and have owned the Austin 8 since the 1980s. It was ownd by my wife, Liz's uncle at Gisborne and we later inherited it from her aunt. The engine had to be reconditioned and much work tidying it up. But it was well worth it and it is a great little car. I call it the Flying Flee 2 as my first car was a 1936 Austin 7 Ruby which was the Flying Flee.                                                                                                                                      I am a member og the Vintage Austin Register NZ (VAR) and the Waikato Morris Club as I also have a 1967 Morris Minor Van. I really enjoy outings with both clubs and rececently had a combined run.

About Me

I am living in New Zealand. I have bought the car in a running condition, but the paint started flaking. I have thus decided to do a complete body repaint, but it took much longer than estimated due to some hidden rust spots that had to be removed. The body paintwork is nearly completed and then I will start to assemble it again.
