After this experience we decided to take more care in choosing another classic car. My only stipulation was it had to fit in the garage. After Daisy I did not want another tank sitting on the drive! We took a while before we found a car we both thought we could enjoy and would fit in our garage.
In 2012 along came “Ruby” our 1935 Austin Seven Ruby. We went over to Yorkshire to see Ruby and the owner was a real Austin Seven enthusiast. He had four in all and his wife had given him an ultimatum to get rid of one! He used an Austin Seven every day and often drove to France in her.
Ruby had been fully restored and looked very smart. We joined the Pre War Austin Seven Club and met many very enthusiastic people. This is when we started to attend local shows such as Great Harwood, Longridge, Heskin and Burnley. We found them great fun and people took a lot of interest in her. In 2014 she won first prize at Goosnargh and Longridge Show and in 2013 she was third at Longridge Field Day.
