IAIN AYRE IT'S A JUNGLE OUT HERE

ROD KER AND THE MYSTERY IS...

A TALE OF TWO WEDGES • Often referred to simply as the Austin Princess, neither of these two cars fits that description! A Wolseley 18-22 and a Vanden Plas Ambassador, they do represent the first and last of that particular line, though.

WHEN FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION • To some people the Land Rover is nothing more than a rather crude tool designed simply to do a job, but to others it rises above these utilitarian beginnings and imbues every journey with the tantalising hint of adventure. Les Woods, owner of this lovely 1973 Series 3 example, definitely falls into the latter camp.

A WINNING FORMULA • This MGB has been involved in motorsport for most of its life, and for the last 20 years has been extremely successful on track. It is still road legal though, and that is where we got to try it out.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT... HONDA • Instead of focusing on a single model, this issue we get ambitious and look at some of the esoteric and landmark offerings from Honda, the Japanese company with a mania for engineering precision.

MG MIDGET PROJECT PART 10 SUSPENSION, BRAKES AND STEERING • We continue our assessment and overhaul of the main mechanical elements on the Midget this issue as we strip, examine, clean and rebuild the front suspension, steering and front brakes.

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 8 • This issue the little Mini takes a huge leap forwards towards respectability as we finish the body prep and apply those magic top coats which transform any dusty project into a thing of desire.

CLASSIC MINI PARTS PRICES FROM WWW.MINISPARES.COM FOR A 1976 LEYLAND MINI 998CC

PROJECT BMW MINI ONE PART 8 • In the final instalment of our MINI One project, Rob Hawkins completes some shakedown testing before handing the car over to Car Mechanics magazine.

PROJECT BLOWER BENTLEY BECAUSE YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE! PART 1 • As projects go, they don’t come much more ambitious than a sight-unseen Bentley Turbo R. However, we take the plunge (so you don’t have to!) and replace Project Shoestring with what we could call Project Gamble.
