Extract from Colin’s story; “The car was a dark red Austin 1100 and I am sitting in the driving seat. I was 15 years old in 1970. Dad went with Peter Collins in his car to get it. Someone had taken the radio out of the car before we had it so there was no radio in it the whole time we had it which was two years. We sold the red one for a bigger car which was a Ford Cortina which was silver grey. Both cars had a cigarette lighter. This photo was taken at a farm in Pyecombe, my dad drove me there. We went to lots of different places. I never drove it. My dad had to learn to drive. He practised on Mick’s old banger, a Ford Zephyr.”
