What have you done today with your Austin Seven
What I did yesterday was the Clee Hills Trial in Ecurie 2CV, all three of which finished a little battered but unbowed and triumphant. There were many Sevens, but in different classes to those of us in Class Zero, so we never really saw them in the daylight. The best I can do is a barely focused snap of Andy Fox about to spring forth unto the hills of Shropshire, which he must have done with considerable prowess, speed  and skill, because we never saw him again!
Can't seem to quote your post Chris.
It used to be 3 cars in the greenhouse. Jaws the trials car nearly got named "the greenhouse special" because that was where it was built.
2 sevens and a GN Ford special.
I miss that greenhouse !
We  started at 9.30 and finished the last hill at 3 o'clock .Excellent days motorsport in brilliant sunshine with icy roads.
I have posted video on facebook of Clare Renshaw in the Chummy taking on the Slab.

The Borders Vintage Automobile Club had on outing yesterday. A drive around Thr Borders followed by a Burns Lunch at Lauderdale hotel.
A good outing in excellent weather.
Very good to see Dick & Anne's Open Road Tourer on its 1st outing with the club.


With reference to cars in the greenhouse - when my parents bought their house in 1968 the previous owners had run it as a sort of market garden. Four enormous glasshouses remained from this and at one point contained over 50 Austin Sevens until a huge storm in the mid 1970s blew some of them down (damaging only one car - a special). The bases of these were then used to build several large outbuildings which now contain the BA7C spares and my father's collections.
