Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Out & About -

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.
