This website is my attempt to tell the story of my Austin Seven Ulster Project and my Lea Francis 14HP Special Project. I started the Austin in September 2013 with the aim to have the car finished by summer 2016 in order to join my father and others on a trip to Italy to drive the 1931 Mille Miglia route.. The trip didnt happen for various reasons but is still in the plan. I started the Lea Francis in August 2018 after moving house to Cheshire.
Please view the pictorial history of the project via the Gallery and more detail in the Blog. Please feel free to ask any questions via the option on the About page
I hope you enjoy the story..

Austin Sevens are old, simple, and frustrating things, much the same as those that restore them!
