UNBROKEN WORLD RECORDS
As 2005 unfolds, I note that after 12 years the
following world records remain in tack. In May 1993 a party of Austin
Seven enthusiasts ventured to
Steve Hodgson - Claims the world record for ascent of the
hill in standard engined
ratio gear box – Windscreen Flat – No Goggles 82 Seconds
Ken Berry - Claims World record for Mk 1 Ruby –
with riding mechanic and open sunroof 142 seconds
World record for
riding mechanic (taking French Polishing
lessons) 123 seconds
Claims World record for
“Dicky” seat closed with Lady Beryl
(sober this time) from the Dog House Club 120 seconds
Clive Roberts - Claims World record in 1927 Chummy
with riding mechanic & screen closed –
fully observed from a standing start
(excused wind) 120 seconds
Mac Bonar Claims World record for a solo attempt
(a bit hungry) screen open with goggles
but with an unassisted start and a flying
( ?? ) finish 103 seconds
We received this picture – at our main nerve centre via an encrypted message from the NASA
observation satellite MAV.1S We have printed it as received and need to have it identified.
We add that there is no security implication .
Cheers to Naomi !!! ..........................

Hi/hallo mr Mac Bonar, or in Icelandic, "Sæll og blessaður".
YP 7852 is at the moment in total restoring, down to the smallest nut and
Carefully glassblasted primed and painted with respect love and care. The car will hopefully be ready before cristmas time. But I send you a picture of the car like it was when it landed over here. YP 7852 is the only Austin seven in Iceland, strange but true. I shall send you another photo after the restoration is over. Your website is a vonderful site, thank you it is on my favorite list. But are you able to inform me the orginal color of the car, and where to
find site screens for the top. That was missing from the car when it came
over here from
Does YP 7852 have any
history tha can be found in
I thought that you may like these for the collection.
