Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Out & About -

DAVID SIMISTER ED­I­TOR 1990 MAZDA Eunos Road­ster

Where did sum­mer go? H521 NRX has been shel­ter­ing from the storms – and I still need to get its peel­ing lac­quer sorted out.

JAMES SADLIER MAN­AG­ING ED­I­TOR 2000 MAZDA MX-5 NB

Work has be­gun to get the MX-5 back on the road be­fore the end of sum­mer. Hope­fully there’ll be some soft top fun in Au­gust.

MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRO­DUC­TION ED­I­TOR 1977 MG Mid­get 1500

Will the Mid­get gets its re­place­ment tyre fit­ted be­fore its owner dis­ap­pears off on hol­i­day for two weeks, this com­ing Fri­day? Place your bets now…

MUR­RAY SCUL­LION NEWS ED­I­TOR 1996 MAZDA MX-5

Au­to­glym has sent me some scratch re­mover for the Mazda’s war wound (see story, left). Fin­gers crossed that it ac­tu­ally works!

CHRIS HOPE FEA­TURES ED­I­TOR 1980 TRI­UMPH TR7 FHC

Var­i­ous com­mit­ments have seen the Wedge pressed into com­mut­ing du­ties for a whole week. I think it’s look­ing for­ward to hav­ing the week­end off!

NICK LARKIN ED­I­TOR AT LARGE 1990 AUSTIN Mae­stro

The Mae­stro once again at­tended the Fes­ti­val of the Unexceptional last week­end, mak­ing friends, though it wasn’t one of the cars for judg­ing.

RICHARD BAR­NETT MAR­KETS ED­I­TOR 1987 MIT­SUBISHI Lancer es­tate

So far it hasn’t been used much but I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting it along to some cir­cuits and hill­climbs later this year, while it’s still sum­mer.

DAVID BROWN SE­NIOR CON­TRIB­U­TOR 1972 VW T2 Camper

Took two young ladies to their endof-term school prom and then me cross-coun­try to a Bourne Mo­tor Rac­ing Club evening meet.
