    This is my dad's R10 in the early 70's towing his Austin 7 built for competing the Park Orchards mud trials. It was sold in 72 to fund an o/s trip.

    Nice. Was this overseas? I haven't seen too many dark blue ones in Oz. I used to own one, and it faded quite quickly but don't think it was ever THAT dark to begin with.

    I bought it from around the Putney area, and towed it home on a tow-rope with a friend driving the tow car, and myself actually driving the car being towed - just hanging back far enough to give the illusion it was actually being towed. Worked quite well unless he accelerated too quickly off the lights and pulled the tow rope taught. Then the R10 lurched accordingly.
