THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
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.
