I am posting these here as it seems many do not go to the gallery posts, we have Douglas Alderton to thank for alerting us to these on the Pre War Minor forum. Many are from the LAT archive and there are some real gems and the ones I have put up are just a small sample.

BTW, there is one of those trailers - similar, same wheels - for restoration.... going free tonight on carandclassic....

Trafficator stalks are shown on Doc Spearman's 1934 AAL Open Road Tourer in the Original Austin 7, but disappeared fairly swiftly in favour of the slots behind the doors... The hood rests on that car are also different (possibly of an earlier type...)

Don't worry about it, use it, let your friends and family use it!
Many of these are LAT photos from Austin Harris'website; I am reluctant to add them to the Gallery without permission ... so, how do you feel about it, Austin?
I've emailed the Minor Forum with one update - theirs are all LAT archive and one "Special" was obviously the Arrow bodied in a 1934 Road text report. I wonder if there is a chance that we could get our hands on some of the original images for the Dec 1933 Light Car magazine article on the 65. Does anyone know if that publication was part of that LAT business, or if not, where Light Car archives might reside?
