Pre war motoring

I think we should all hum Larry Adler's theme from Genevieve to get in the right spirit for this!

A drive for one in a pre-war Austin 7
The kind owner, who lives near Foulsham, will take you for a drive, of approx two hours, in one of two cars.
Mavis (left) is an Austin 7 Opal, two seat tourer made in 1937. She has a hood, doors and soft suspension and will give you a genuine taste of pre-war motoring.

The Paxton Austin 7 Special (right), based on original chassis made in 1938, is a tuned fast road car with a Brooklands exhaust and provides an exhilarating ride at speeds up to 70 MPH.

You may choose whichever car you prefer for the drive, which could take in, for example, a visit to the coast or perhaps a nostalgic heritage tour through the timeless North Norfolk country lanes passing Blickling, Holkham or Felbrigg.
