It’s Coming Together – Project ‘65

In our last update, which was somewhat shockingly, six months ago, we were shouting with glee about the Cortina having paint on it. As well all know, painting a car is a huge step, as from that point on it’s simply a case of building the car back up. All the horrible, dirty, messy jobs […]

BMW Z3 – The Time Is Now

As we sit down to write this, we do so in the knowledge that this week, there will be a heatwave. And as such, this has led us down the path of convertibles, or more specifically, two-seat roadsters. After all, there is little better in life than going for a blast in a car that’s […]

Celebrating the Survivors

It goes without saying that I love a classic car. It’s a passion that has been with me my whole life, and it’s a passion that has seen me make a career out of writing about them. Modern classic, pre-war, post-war, custom, modified, restored or patinated, I have a great deal of time for them […]

1967 Volkswagen Beetle – Project Profile

The Volkswagen Beetle is a car that resides fairly high on the ‘all time’ classic car list. It’s a car that has, impressively, even managed to transcend the automotive world.

1969 Alfa Romeo GT – Classified of the Week

There is something so wonderfully perverse about a racy, noisy, stripped out, stickered-up classic car. For the most part, classic cars are machines we associate with sunny summers and car shows. So to think of one competing, and competing hard, well, that’s something to stir the soul. And it’s something to celebrate, too. People think […]

Tool Up – Five Handy Multi-tools

Sometimes you just need a tool quickly. Nothing fancy. A blade to cut something, maybe a screwdriver to change the batteries in something. Perhaps you’re at a BBQ (remember those?) and you need to open a beer but there is no opener handy. Maybe you just want to always be prepared to mend, open or […]
