Classic Motor Show - Dawlish

A stroll in the park with some rare motors from the past:  Dawlish could not be bettered this Sunday.
Many a proud owner was on hand to speak of adventures on the open road but by far the most impressive was the couple who had crossed the continents of both North America and South America in their lovely open top Austin Seven. And yes the book has already been written.
