Sandwell











At the 32nd running of the Sandwell Historic Vehicle Show, GTU 864T returned to the locale of its birth, West Bromwich. The Jensen Owners' Club showed a splendid 27 cars. 

































The Metropolitan (above) was assembled by Austin at Longbridge, using bodies fabricated by Fisher and Ludlow at Castle Bromwich, on contract to Nash Motors Ltd of the United States. Approximately 100,000 were produced, 95% of which went to America. Some lovely badges on the front of a Ford Prefect.
