THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
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.
