THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
DAVID SIMISTER EDITOR 1990 MAZDA Eunos Roadster
The Eunos has just been invited on a trip up to the Scottish Highlands. Best get on with arranging the overdue service, then, I suppose…
JAMES SADLIER MANAGING EDITOR 1994 FORD Mondeo GLX
Radio silence from the mighty Mondeo, currently missing in action somewhere (very) north of the border. Car 54, where are you?
MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRODUCTION EDITOR 1977 MG Midget 1500
Another year’s MoT secured with no advisories. Handbrake now actually holds the car on inclines and a new clamp keeps the battery in place.
DAVID BROWN ASSOCIATE EDITOR 1972 VW T2 Camper
Spent a gloriously sunny Sunday exploring Northamptonshire’s country lanes, followed by a cream tea at a former riverside mill. Perfect!
MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR 1996 MAZDA MX-5
Grave news: my girlfriend wants to borrow my MX-5 for the week. She must be pretty desperate (for a car, that is, not to be dating me).
CHRIS HOPE FEATURES EDITOR 1980 TRIUMPH TR7 FHC
Visit to Robsport booked for this week; the TR is being converted to electronic ignition so I can finally forget about points and condenser.
NICK LARKIN EDITOR AT LARGE 1990 AUSTIN Maestro
Headed to Scotland on loan for a
Practical Classics feature. I’m like a worried parent whose son has gone clubbing for the first time!
RICHARD BARNETT MARKETS EDITOR 1989 CITROËN C15 Romahome
It didn’t have many outings last year, other than to the Tonfanua circuit, but once back from its MoT test we’re hoping to get out and about in it.
