THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
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
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.
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!
