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.
