Before the register could be put together, I needed a computer program set up to keep all the file records.I am certain that I could not have accomplished anything without the help and patience of Steward Hill, a computer expert.Not only did Steward set up the program, but helped me through this early stages when I knew absolutely nothing about computers.Now I am quite comfortable with the lap-top Steward recommended.After I had obtained a copy of Ian's book: "The Austin Eight" I have searched for Ian and found him living in Jersey.
photocopied, together with an Austin Ten drivers club members list to locate those Austin Eight owners.
If you would like to receive specific details about the regsiter, or about a specific car, please feel free to contact me via e-mail The Acknowledgements below are taken from the book "The Austin Eight" by Ian Pinniger in 1993.
I took over the Austin Eight Register from Ian in 2012, together with his 1939 Austin Eight Tourer, called DOT.
In those early days Derek Roberts from Gloucester used to help me out and we have become good friends.
I have the pleasure of a reunion each year at the Beaulieu auto jumble.
In some cases the previos owners were even able to drive the cars they ones owned.
