However, because we’re a bit generous, for a limited time, if you mention the ‘Wheels-Alive’ website when ordering, for U.K. buyers the price has been reduced to an incredibly wonderful value-for-money £25.00, including the First Class postage.
WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT KIM’S A30/35 BOOK
“It is a tribute to Kim Henson’s dedication and efforts that this book has seen the light and it must surely rate as the definitive work for anyone even remotely interested in The Austin A30 or A35”.
BOURNEMOUTH DAILY ECHO
Five Star rating (out of five), and they say “This exceptionally thorough book must be the most authoritative volume ever written on these popular little Austins. The history chapter is fantastic, but it’s the real world advice on buying, maintaining and surviving the MoT that will prove most useful. There are even chapters on club restorations”.
PRACTICAL CLASSICS MAGAZINE
The book contains all you’ll ever need to know about buying, running, restoring and modifying the ’50s Austin”
RETRO CARS MAGAZINE
“Kim Henson’s book has been in the making for many years and is an extension of his obvious enthusiasm for the baby Austin. Rather than just focus on the history of the car, he has chosen to write a ‘real-world’ book that is designed to give you a feel for owning one of these cars. To that end he succeeds – it’s full of great photographs, plus lots of factual and anecdotal information to inspire and inform. In short, it’s a great book and is to be the first in a line of these. The next will be on the Ford Anglia. I can’t wait!”.
“This is an interesting and thorough account of the UK’s original supermini. Kim Henson’s enthusiasm is clearly evident”.
