Phil Thomas's Austin Westminster - the creation of an early British Kustom
Rob Davies' '32 Austin Phil found this old article in the October 1970 issue of Hot Car, so obviously the car was built well before then. Rob built the car - and always said that he thought he was the first in the country to fit a HA Viva front end in a rod. After finishing the car, Rob emigrated to Australia taking the Austin with him, but sold it over there when he decided to return home to the UK.

Moulin Rouge Lives!
An iconic car for many people, and 'missing' for so many years, Bob Welstead's Moulin Rouge has finally re-appeared. Apart from a few body mods, it still looks the same, and is a credit to all who have owned her since 1977.
Here's a little more recent history, on Paul Quick's T-bucket.
Below is an extract from the September 1998 issue of Rod & Custom magazine, showing the T at the Houston Autorama when owned by a couple from Illinois.
Here we have a couple of pictures of the T when it arrived in this country - complete with blower.
