|John built the car in the year he got married,1957.He was an insurance inspector based in Maidstone at the time and had an office car (Austin A35) so his wife would use the Turner. When it was about a year old she took it in for petrol and the attendant (no self service in those days!) offered to check her tyre pressures. John ran them very low as the car was so light - around 20lbs - but they were put up to 30! John's wife left for Chatham and in the wet up the hill with the sharp bend (it is no longer there) she went straight on over the precipice, landing on a rubbish tip upside down. She was thrown out uninjured but the car lost it's bodywork. The frame remained in good order so John fitted a new body of the later type which came with tail fins. When the family started to arrive John sold the Turner to his sister who used it for many years.
