General motoring news
This site is dedicated to the Austin Champ, its history and keeping an Austin Champ on-the-road today|
CHAMP NEWS (CN) was originally a paper-based newsletter running from March 2000 to February 2012 and from now it will be web-based only. CN covers most aspects of the Austin Champ, and especially maintaining an Austin Champ on the road today with step-by-step technical articles and where to get spare parts. The site will contain pictures of Champs in military service and of Champs around today. Over the coming months material from the paper-based CN's will be added to this site together with new material on anything that affects Champ owners today.
If you have any stories of Austin Champs, either in military service or in civilian life, and especially with photographs, please send them in.
The technical articles: if you can see a better way of doing anything or if you have done work on your Champ I would be very interested to hear from you.
Spares: if you know of a good supplier of spares or anyone who does good work on Champs please let me know.
Copyright: articles and photographs are the copyright of this site or of those who have supplied any material.

because the ACOC has:
