I am an avid CAR reader and have been since the late 1960s. I’m 72 years young and failed to renew my subscription last year due to weak eyesight; I can read the rather ne print only using a magnifying glass. I wish to express my appreciation for the December 2017 mag that I received in the post recently; truly a great issue. I especially liked the articles about the Austin 7, the seven decades of the Mercedes “S-klasse” (of which I had two), the driving impression of the Mercedes-benz bakkie and the re-conditioning of the old Land Rovers and Jaguars.
Once again, my heart has been won over by reading your fantastic magazine and I want to be a subscriber again, for at least another 12 issues. ARTHUR MELROSE Henneman
