NEW LINK to Austin 1800 web archive in Australia
Now hosted through the generosity of the The Austin Motor Vehicle Club of NSW, this web archive was originally created through many hours of work by Tony Cripps in writing, collecting and compiling information from numerous sources including the Landcrab Owners Club of Australia Newsletters, and the original 1800 web site put together by John Roach of Western Australia, as well as Tony's own newsletters. This archive is a true labour of love and a must-visit for any Landcrabber.
