DAVID SIMIS­TER ED­I­TOR 1990 MAZDA Eunos Road­ster

A bit of lac­quer on the driver’s door is start­ing to peel af­ter one sun-kissed out­ing too many. Best get the touchup paint out, I sup­pose…

JAMES SADLIER MANAG­ING ED­I­TOR 1994 FORD MON­DEO GLX

The Mon­deo is dan­ger­ously low on oil, but has just enough un­til I can source some Granville Hy­palube, the ideal choice for Zetec en­gines.

MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR 1977 MG Mid­get 1500

More in­ac­tiv­ity fol­low­ing a Bank Hol­i­day week­end of tor­ren­tial rain storms. Won­der how much a pe­riod hard­top would cost?

DAVID BROWN AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR 1999 ROVER 200 BRM LE

Cur­rently the daily driver as VW Golf MkV has emis­sions prob­lems – would I lie to you? An­other week­end trip to the Sil­ver­stone area lined up, too.

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR 1996 MAZDA MX-5

Keys are back in my sweaty palms af­ter I lent it to my girl­friend for the week. She loved it. I loved lend­ing it to her rather less. Re­port to come soon.

CHRIS HOPE FEA­TURES ED­I­TOR 1980 TRI­UMPH TR7 FHC

Racked up over 150 miles on my trip down to Rob­sport and back via TRGB. New elec­tronic ig­ni­tion ap­pears to be work­ing like a dream!

NICK LARKIN ED­I­TOR AT LARGE 1990 AUSTIN Mae­stro

Bask­ing in the glory of its re­cent star ap­pear­ance on Jeremy Vine’s Ra­dio 2 show. Now won’t get out of bed for less than twenty quid and a Wagon Wheel.

RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS ED­I­TOR 1932 FORD Model B

We have spark, and we have light. Thanks to a few nights help from my friend Ger­ald, the end is in sight and the B should be re­turn­ing to the road.
