DAVID SIMIS­TER ED­I­TOR

1972 MGB GT Wished I’d brought the Bumblebee along to Newby Hall to join the 100 clas­sics tak­ing part in its MG dis­play last week­end. It’s el­i­gi­ble - just!

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR

1994 FORD Mon­deo GLX The al­ready sus­pect rear tyre fi­nally gave up the ghost just be­fore the morn­ing com­mute to the of­fice. Sorry about that, Mr Simis­ter!

MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR

2001 MGF 1.8i Made the most of a sunny Satur­day morn­ing to en­joy a proper top-down drive of the newly-fet­tled MGF. It’s good to have it back!

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR

1996 MAZDA MX-5 Since lend­ing my MX-5 to my girl­friend it’s de­vel­oped an in­cred­i­bly low clutch bit­ing point. I’ve cre­ated a tem­po­rary fix… more on that later.

CHRIS HOPE FEA­TURES EDTIOR

1980 TRI­UMPH TR7 FHC Sur­vived four nights in Manch­ester Air­port’s long-stay car park, plus ex­u­ber­ant driv­ing through Wood­head Pass. It’s in my good books.

NICK LARKIN ED­I­TOR AT LARGE

2003 ROVER 75 The Rover 75 was treated to face-offs with its one-time op­po­si­tion at the VBOA Rally at Mar­ket Har­bor­ough Show­ground. There were no in­juries!

RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS ED­I­TOR

1989 CITROËN C15 ROMAHOME Trundling along nicely and still gen­er­at­ing plenty of in­ter­est. Back from a visit to Ton­fanau cir­cuit where it was the per­fect home-from-home.

DAVID BROWN SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR

1972 VW BEE­TLE 1200L An out­ing in this crowd-pleas­ing clas­sic turns a mid-week lo­cal chore trip into a spe­cial treat – got to love that or­ange Bee­tle!
