Hang On Tight!
A Sunbeam family car is put through her paces.
This fine action shot shows Antony Davies testing the performance of his “family” Sunbeam 14/40 following a recent extensive restoration. Note the passengers holding on tight as the car speeds round a bend. And dogs just love Sunbeams!
Antony lives on a farm near Jembaicumbene, in the south of New South Wales, Australia and these pictures show a fun event at the farm following completion of the recent restoration earlier this year (2018).
The event was to mark the visit to Jembaicumbene of the Austin Seven Club who were challenged to a motorkhana against the Sunbeam which, as can be seen, performed in fine style.
