Celebrity A7 owner
#1
Good morning. According to yesterday's Daily Mail Nick Hewer ex Apprentice  and presenter of Countdown owns a 1931 Swallow and a 1936 Opal.

I know that David Steele the politician owned one but what other well known people have been smitten by the A7 bug?

Regards from the creative county - Staffordshire

I believe Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac has one - he lives on the island of Maui, Hawaii, I think the A7's there too.

I think the less celebrity owners of Austin 7's the better!  When certain marques gain celebrity status I tend to lose interest.   Look how Goodwood Festival of Speed has become little more than a Fashion Show for the rich and famous.
Anyway, we have enough of our own celebrities within the Forum!

What is a celebrity anyway?

As an Equity card holding (notionally) professional actor, can I join the 95% of "Celebrities" that I've never heard of?

Further to my earlier post re Mick Fleetwood's A7 - apparently it's called 'Lettuce Leaf' ! The registration appears to be OY 4892 - it's not on the A7CA Chassis Register but is on the DVLA database as 'Not taxed for on road use'.

That's me. I was once on talking terms with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He once said to me:



"Shift!"

I agree with Malcolm about Goodwood , the entry per day to attend their events is "bonkers" and the cost for camping makes your eyes water.They have taken on the pre war motto of the Broocklands set of " the right crowd and no crowding ", regards to all Rob.

Martin, that wasn't you on Celebrity Masterchef was it? (Can we see you in anything if we search?)
