CCW’s latest car updates
DAVID SIMISTER EDITOR 1972 MGB GT
The Bumblebee’s been to Anglesey for a weekend away with my parents. No reports of it breaking down, either – the car’s clearly on best behaviour!
JAMES SADLIER MANAGING EDITOR 2000 MAZDA MX-5 NB
Hasn’t moved in so long that the tyres are past their best. I reckon a new set of boots is going to be top of the list before it returns to the road…
MIKE LE CAPLAIN PRODUCTION EDITOR 1977 MG Midget 1500
Plotting a couple of hours’ break from yet another weekend spent clearing the garage out to get the old boy cleaned. It looks like a barn-find at the moment!
MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR 1996 MAZDA MX-5
Another week of neglect for the MX-5, though I have bought a new steering wheel for it. And guess what? My Renaultsport Clio is still for sale…
CHRIS HOPE FEATURES EDITOR 1980 TRIUMPH TR7 FHC
A morning at Robsport saw the Triumph’s rear suspension transformed. The B-road drive home was a delight – full report to come soon.
NICK LARKIN EDITOR AT LARGE 1989 AUSTIN Maestro
Enjoyed itself at Peterborough Classic Car Show, despite my unsuccessful attempt to swap it for a Chevrolet Corvette. Well, you can only ask!
RICHARD BARNETT MARKETS EDITOR 2002 JAGUAR X-type
Toddling around Llanelli and Carmarthen and it never ceases to amaze me just how well this stellar-mileage motor drives.
DAVID BROWN SENIOR CONTRIBUTOR 1972 VW T2 Camper
Managed to get three longhorn cattle in the back. Fortunately it was just a framed picture of said creatures, so no mess for me to clear up!
