DAVID SIMIS­TER ED­I­TOR

1972 MGB GT The win­ter health kick has done it the world of good. With the body­work ti­died and the new glass fit­ted, it’s safely made it to Preston and back.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR

2000 MAZDA MX-5 NB Took it to the track, but then re­alised said quar­ter mile oval was for run­ning on foot around rather than for hav­ing fun in sports cars.

MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR

1977 MG Midget Snugly en­sconced and look­ing smug in its new and much big­ger garage – com­plete with elec­tric door. Hope there’s a man­ual over­ride…

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR

1972 VW T2 Camper/Bee­tle 1200 Regular oil level checks are the norm on my ‘72 VWs and I al­ways check the fan belt ten­sion and tyre pres­sures at the same time. All ap­pear to be fine.

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR

RICHARD GUNN SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR

1994 VOLVO 940 SE With the Saab still out of com­mis­sion, even af­ter its new man­i­fold gas­ket, Swedish long dis­tance du­ties are in the hands of its more ca­pa­cious ri­val.

NICK LARKIN ED­I­TOR AT LARGE

1960 HILL­MAN Minx I’ve de­cided to of­fer the Hill­man Minx to a good home, which means that there’ll be a gap in the Larkin fleet, buy prob­a­bly not for long.

RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS ED­I­TOR

1987 MIT­SUBISHI Lancer Just flown through the MoT test with­out a sin­gle ad­vi­sory. With spring ar­riv­ing, it’s about time I put a few miles on this quirky lon­groof.
