THIS WEEK IN OUR FLEET...
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.
