THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
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

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 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.
