About Me

My name is Hermann Egges. I am a British car enthusiast.

I own a 1939 Austin Eight Tourer and a 1939 Austin Eight Fourlight Saloon.

Since January 3013, I am the Austin Eight Registrar. I took this role from Ian Pinniger, who started the register in the 1970's. The 1939 Austin Tourer named DOT belownged to Ian as well. Besides my Austins, I have a 1951 MG TD, which is in restoration. 

We enjoy our classics with all 4 members of our family. My wife, my two boy's and me.

Please feel free to visit my web pages for the MG and Austin.



My other web page is related to car brochures and adverts of British classics. 


I have been collecting car brochures since I was a little child. First I collected articles and adverts of cars out of newspapers and magazines. After that I went to local car dealers to get the brochures of the cars, showed in their showrooms. I was a happy child if I left the dealer with one or more brochures in my hand. These were the first brochures I collected, which are still today in my private collection. This means that the collection of brochures starts in the late seventies up till now.

I try to search for people who have the same interest in car brochures as I do. I would like to share experiences and information and hope to get in contact to interchange brochures with each other. In this way I try to enlarge my own private collection and the collection of people I get in contact with.

All brochures shown on my web-page are out of my own collection. I have made photographs of them and made collages as shown on the web-page. More than 1.250 brochures, and more than 2.800 advertisements are listed at my web page.

I hope you will enjoy my web-pages.

Kind Regards

Hermann Egges
