Austin Twenty Memoirs

• • Austin Twenty Memoirs Sir, Austin Twelves, Austin Twelves all over the place but, rarely an Austin Twenty. Then in the September MOTOR SPORT an Austin Twenty four-cylinder is mentioned!

Veteran Car Run to Brighton. This year a record entry of 137 was received; there were 17 non-starters, and, on a day of relentless gales and pouring rain, 45 failed to reach Brighton.
