DAVID SIMISTER ED­I­TOR 1990 MAZDA Eunos Road­ster

Even after a very long Drive-It Day (see £500 Chal­lenge) I still man­aged to get the Mazda out for a quick blast. Did you spot it in last week’s is­sue?

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR 1994 FORD Mon­deo

Goes where lesser clas­sics fear to tread when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Hail­stones? Snow? Pah! I laugh in your face!

MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR 1977 MG Midget 1500

Basked in blaz­ing sun­shine by the sea­side on Drive-It Day, then shiv­ered in an Arc­tic blast the very next day. Can clas­sic cars catch a cold?

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR 1972 VW T2 Camper

Ve­hi­cle of choice for Drive-It Day – VW ride-out to AGA Oun­dle Clas­sic Break­fast Meet, then a visit to Rocks By Rail, Cottes­more in the af­ter­noon.

MURRAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR 1996 MAZDA MX-5

Op­er­a­tion Anti-Mould has re­sulted in an un­sightly patch on the MX-5’s roof (see op­po­site). Still, shouldn’t af­fect its im­pend­ing MoT, should it?

RICHARD GUNN SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR 1989 SAAB 900 Turbo

Due to ar­rive back shortly fol­low­ing a dis­trib­u­tor re­build, but will it solve the Saab’s run­ning prob­lems when it’s re­united with the en­gine?

NICK LARKIN ED­I­TOR AT LARGE 1989 AUSTIN Mae­stro

Busy fer­ry­ing rub­bish to the lo­cal tip where, rather im­prob­a­bly, it met some ador­ing ad­mir­ers. Not sure what that says about the car. Or the tip.

RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS ED­I­TOR 1999 JAGUAR S-type 3.0 SE

Back from get­ting its ticket, my next plan is to treat the S-type to a re­paint in later S-type metal­lic gold – but with a dark metal­lic green roof.
