Monty's Austin A35



Another interesting car arrived in Killerton in '72, a white (?) Austin A35.

This one had been acquired by Martin Hannant and made its way back to the fleet parking area.

It was an interesting "motah" able to transport a single person at head dizzying speeds - sometimes approaching 39 miles per hour - as witnessed by the local police who, on one occasion.

They didn't bother to book Monty for driving at an alleged 34 mph on the A38 through Broadclyst. Apparently they didn't believe their radar equipment could register that low! They did however give him a warning about causing an obstruction!
