Ironstone September 17th, 2005

    In honor of the 75th anniversary of the American Austin automobile, the Ironstone Concours D'Elegance decided to feature the American Austin and Bantam.  This was also open to the Austin Seven, Dixi and Rosengart.  We had a total of fourteen cars at the Concours including Austin, American Austin and Bantam.


The day before the Concours Mike Harrell and I did some cruising around town.  We ran into Dave and Peggy Douglas and decided to have an ice cream :-)
