GRAHAM ROBSON PERSIL'S MINI MARATHON

IAIN AYRE THE ALI OF BOXSTERS

ROD KER A VERY SOGGY SIMCA

THE WAY I SEE IT... • Paul Ziller bought a rusted out hulk of an Austin-Healey 100-6 and rebuilt it from the ground up, adding a few little tweaks of his own along the way.

DONALD HEALEY AND THE AUSTIN

PASS THE PARCEL • After many decades with its first owner, this TR7 passed through a few hands, each one improving it before the current owner could claim his prize.

YOU CAN RING MY BELL... • Andrew Roberts falls in love with a Metropolitan Police Wolseley 6/99, and gets immediately transported back to the 1960s. ‘MP to Charlie 3-4. Urgent message follows. Stolen Jaguar MkVII believed to be involved in Hatton Garden raid sighted in Oxford Street. Car contains suspects Victor Maddern, Sydney Tafler, Harry Fowler and Michael Balfour. Message ends.’

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT... THE FORD CORTINAS • The Ford Cortina really was a legend in its own lifetime. Progressing through five generations between 1962 and 1982, it defined an era of family motoring in the UK. It also ruled the commercial traveller roost for much of its life, and was a demon on track too. Here are some other facts about this superb family line.

MG MIDGET PROJECT PART 6 THE OFFSIDE RULE • Having replaced the sill panels and finished welding up the nearside, Alan Denne turns his attention to the offside of our Midget in a bid to restore its full structural integrity.

The MG Owners Club

Troubleshooting with Steve Rothwell • Our helpful Q&A hotline may be able to solve your classic-related problems, so email us at classics.ed@kelsey.co.uk and we’ll do our best to help.

PROJECT MINI CLUBMAN PART 4 • This issue, Simon Goldsworthy bites the bullet and starts work on the one area of visible rust on his 1976 Mini Clubman automatic – the offside A-panel, which is a notorious rust spot on any Mini.

PROJECT BMW MINI ONE PART 4 • Rob Hawkins attempts to fix the MINI One’s rear brakes by being frugal, but realises there are limits to cutting costs.

PROJECT SHOESTRING PART 2 • Last issue we set out the background to this attempt to buy a classic car and get it on the road for under £1500. This issue, we can introduce our chosen weapon properly – a base spec Triumph Acclaim from 1984.

WATERPROOF YOUR CLASSIC • Follow our top tips for preventing water from getting inside your classic car and causing damage.

FREE RANGE • After 49 years and just three models, Land Rover broke new ground with its Freelander. Instant success followed and a future classic was born.

FREELANDER PARTS PRICES

THE 1960 MOTOR SHOW REVISITED • You may recall that in the October issue we had a news story on a virtual rally for the Sunbeam Rapier Owners Club, organised by club Chairman Neil Lamond. As part of this virtual rally, he put together a...
