Trevor Parker President: Trevor Parker

Victoria Branch

I got my love of English cars from my Mom and Dad .They had sports cars before I was born and till I was two. Those two years it was an Austin Healey 100-6. My Dad sold British Fords through the '60s and early '70s . So for a while he was bringing home Lotus Cortinas mark 1s and 2s. And my first car was an 105E Anglia 1963.I fell in love with the Austin Healey 100 when I came across an original brochure in a stack of old Road & Track magazines. I could not believe that there were cars like that in Victoria so I ask my Dad and he said sure and that an old friend still had the one he had bought 1954 . I have had that car for 38 years now. At this time we four Austins ,1951 A40 Devon ,1956 A90-six Westminster ,54 Austin Healey 100 and a 55 Austin Healey restoration project on the go.I was a marine diesel mechanic for 35 years mainly on sailboats .I started sailing when was 9 years old.
