Of all the cars I have owned I have the fondest memories of this 1958 Austin Lancer. After a period of hatchback driving I went back to classics and picked this up cheap. It had two previous owners and had been in Canberra for 40 years. The previous owner had it for 12 years and during that time the car remained mostly original aside from the paint being freshened up, new carpets, headlining and the seats recovered. For a 1500cc BMC engine it could motor happily along at 100km/hr and I took it on quite a few tours. Sadly, we had to part ways before I moved overseas.
