Bonnet baby

Anyone wondering how AJ technical editor Austin Williams got his first name need look no further than the latest offering from Black Dog Publishing. In The Macro World of Micro Cars, which he coauthored with Kate Trant, Williams explains: 'I was rumoured to have been conceived in the back of a Baby Austin just as the 1950s were coming to an end. I guess that my name was a foregone conclusion and I regularly thank god that we didn't have a Cortina, a Minx or a Messerschmitt.' Williams has also sneaked in a couple of family snaps among David Cowlard's photos of improbably tiny cars with ludicrously earnest owners.
