DAVID SIMISTER EDI­TOR

1972 MGB GT It’s still run­ning beau­ti­fully – but it hasn’t been to any clas­sic shows yet this year. That’s some­thing that’s got to change…

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING EDI­TOR

1994 FORD Mon­deo GLX There’s a slight rat­tling from the ex­haust which may be due to cor­ro­sion around the fix­ings. On a plus note, it is al­most sun­roof sea­son for the GLX!

MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRO­DUC­TION EDI­TOR

2001 MGF 1.8i It’s a go for the ‘F’s MoT work, and the hunt is on for a pair of front wings – prefer­ably in the cor­rect Flame Red – to re­place the scabrous orig­i­nals.

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CIATE EDI­TOR

1972 VW Bee­tle 1200 Con­tin­ues its sta­tus as a me­dia tart with ap­pear­anves in the lat­est is­sues of Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics and Volk­sWorld mag­a­zines – what a star!

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS EDI­TOR

1996 MAZDA MX-5 The sun has come out at least once this week, so it’d be rude not to press the MX-5 into reg­u­lar use. Now, where are my sun­glasses?

CHRIS HOPE FEA­TURES EDI­TOR

1980 TRI­UMPH TR7 The wedge cer­tainly turned heads in a pub car park last Sun­day, im­press­ing the chef in par­tic­u­lar, who put an ex­tra York­shire pud­ding on my plate!

RICHARD GUNN SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR

1993 Fiat Panda Selecta Blown cladding from in­side the Fiat’s ex­haust cre­ated a cute lit­tle hairy tail for it. My Lit­tle Panda, any­one? Oh, and the Saab’s back too.

NICK LARKIN EDI­TOR AT LARGE

2003 ROVER 75 The Rover 75 is in dis­grace, part­ing com­pany with its clutch near Gran­tham. The car was fer­ried back home cour­tesy of the AA.
