Classic Sports Car - - Our Classics -


Plans for a cos­metic makeover are mov­ing for­ward thanks to reader Peter Har­ris, who kindly do­nated a full set of Volk­swa­gen wheels to the cause. This means that I can get them stripped and painted with­out tak­ing the Bee­tle off the road. Thanks Peter! MP

MG 1300

The MG’S starter mo­tor is cur­rently re­spond­ing bet­ter to a ham­mer blow than a turn of the key. On the plus side, I’ve sourced a pair of the rub­ber stops that sit on the bon­net slam panel, as well as a new grille badge to re­place the faded one that’s cur­rently on there. JP


Since Boo is still run­ning, I took it for a won­der­ful scenic tour of some an­cient Welsh churches. While I sat out­side, ad­mir­ing the sun play­ing on the Here­ford­shire mud splashed down the side of my white car, hus­band Len was pur­su­ing his lat­est hobby – bell­ring­ing! Great to lis­ten to… from an E-type road­ster! GC


Thanks to the hot Cal­i­for­nian weather that we’ve been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing in the UK, the Road­ster has barely been off the road. The cool­ing sys­tem is su­pe­rior to the rest of my fleet and, be­ing a rag­top, the Ford is more than suit­able for sum­mer mo­tor­ing, in­clud­ing road trips to Dorset, Stafford­shire and back to north Nor­folk again.
