CCW’s lat­est car up­dates

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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!
