Also I am gratefull to all Austin Eight owners and enthusiats assiting me to build the register further. Funny thing is that my interest in The Austin Eight started exacly the same as Ian's in 1974.
After I bought our first 1939 Austin Eight two door four light saloon, called "Aussie" in 2010, I had difficulties to find spares and was interested in how many Austin Eight's were still in existance, because so less information was available.
This was the starting point for me to build the Austin Eight Register further.
Ian handed over to me the Austin Eight Register containing about 225 registered cars.
The creation of this book came about as the result of wondering just how many Austin Eight's existed, there being no club, no spare part service or book dedicated to the Austin Eight.
I bought my Austin Eight in January 1974 and had great difficulty obtaining spare parts.
If you would like to receive specific details about the regsiter, or about a specific car, please feel free to contact me via e-mail The Acknowledgements below are taken from the book "The Austin Eight" by Ian Pinniger in 1993.
As I write I have just ordered our Austin Eight register car badge.I hope the register will grow in future and hope I am able to assist all Eight owners with histrory about thier particular cars and hope Eight owners will share the details and history of thier cars.In the last years I have brought previous owners in contact with current owners, which brought not known history back to the cars and thier new owners.I hope it will bring them good memories in the future to come.Since January 2013, I am building and up-dating the Austin Eight register further.
