News: MEET THE OWNER – ALEXANDRA PHILLIPS AND HER AUSTIN ALLEGRO

You’d have thought the “Allegro Joke” was utterly and totally played out circa 2002, but even today Alexandra Phillips of Gloucestershire still occasionally encounters a few remarks along the lines of ‘when I say I have classic cars “Oh, what have you got?” Austin Allegro. "Ha ha ha ha that's not a classic"’ plus ‘always you've got the “All Aggro" comments – I just block them out’.

News: Meet the Owner - Rich Philpot and his Triumph Herald 1200 Coupe

‘The original Herald design sketch was of a coupé. To my mind, it is the best-looking body style for a Herald, and the two-tone red and white paint is also my favourite colour combination’. And Rich Philpot’s 1963 example is the epitome of the Triumph that you could ‘Park With Pride!’

News: Peter Sallis and the World's Most Famous Austin A35 Van - A Tribute

What are the great Austin A35 moments in cinema? Well, there is Leslie Phillips driving a van in Carry On Constable, the taxi in The Great Muppet Caper and the spectacularly dire Austin van/Land Rover chase in the 1967 horror film The Deadly Bees, a picture involving bored actors being attacked by black and yellow Styrofoam on a regular basis. If we expand our remit to include the A35’s predecessor we have the even worse Clegg, a 1970 second feature where everyone is out-acted by an A30, various lampposts and their own hair. But, of course, little could equal the sheer drama and excitement of Wallace and Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

News: FIVE CAR-RELATED RESOLUTIONS FOR 2020
