THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
DAVID SIMISTER EDITOR 1990 MAZDA Eunos Roadster
Just spent two days on North Wales’ finest roads. Who needs loads of power when you can drop the roof and enjoy the perfect handling?
JAMES SADLIER MANAGING EDITOR 1994 FORD Mondeo
Those pesky tyres are still letting me down. I’m bored of walking out to deflated boots every morning – it’s definitely time to buy a new set.
MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRODUCTION EDITOR 1977 MG Midget 1500
Golden opportunity for some sunsoaked, top-down cruising cruelly thwarted by a sudden failure to proceed. By me, that is. #manflu
DAVID BROWN ASSOCIATE EDITOR 1972 VW T2 Camper/Beetle 1200L
After a couple of weekends spent enjoying other people’s cars at shows, it was good to get out and about in my own and enjoy the spring sunshine.
MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR 1996 MAZDA MX-5
Mostly sitting in the office car park at the moment thanks to other commitments. MoT up in April – trying to not think about it.
RICHARD GUNN SENIOR CONTRIBUTOR 1989 SAAB 900 Turbo/ 1994 VOLVO 940 SE
The 900’s in the garage having its issues sorted, leaving the Volvo to embark on an imminent railway adventure.
NICK LARKIN EDITOR AT LARGE 1990 AUSTIN Maestro
The Maestro (or at least the sound of its horn) ‘starred’ in a feature on BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine Show extolling the virtue of cars of the 1980s.
RICHARD BARNETT MARKETS EDITOR 1999 JAGUAR S-Type 3.0SE
The big Jag has just breezed through its MoT test – which is hardly surprising, considering that it’s covered just 500 miles in the last 12 months.
