THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
DAVID SIMISTER EDITOR
❚ 1972 MGB GT A succession of show outings with
CCW have kept me out of the ‘B’s driving seat. I was finally reunited with CKE 303K last weekend – about time!
JAMES SADLIER MANAGING EDITOR
❚ 1994 FORD Mondeo GLX I’m preparing the mighty machine for a cruise down to Kent for the Bromley Pageant of Motoring this weekend. Hope to see some of you there!
MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRODUCTION EDITOR
❚ 2001 MGF 1.8i Last seen disappearing into a local professional spray booth, but how much of the car has been painted? I’m desperate to find out! More soon…

MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR
❚ 1996 MAZDA MX-5 The only problem with holidaying in Greece is that Easyjet won’t let me check my now sparkling MX-5 in as luggage. Missing it already!
CHRIS HOPE FEATURES EDITOR
1980 TRIUMPH TR7 FHC The electric aerial I ordered has arrived. Fitting it should be straightforward and hopefully restore FM radio to my ‘Seventies wedge.
NICK LARKIN EDITOR-AT-LARGE
❚ 1990 AUSTIN Maestro Back from an adventure in Scotland (on loan to Practical Classics) without incident. It’s picked up a healthy tribe of Austin-Rover devotees as a result.
