THE GENERAL'S MOTOR • First owned by a general in the Bulgarian People's Army, this Volga is now bringing some Cold War intrigue to the streets of Cambridge.
THE PERSONAL TOUCH • Canadian Larry Spouler is a serial amateur restorer of Triumphs, with a CV that includes two Spitfires, a TR4, a plastic TR6 (aka a TVR 2500M) and a more challenging Mayflower. He recently finished this 1974 1500, and incorporated one or two modifications along the way.
GILDING THE LILY • Gavin Hutton’s Ford Consul Cortina Super Estate drew its inspiration from the US of A, and mixes great practicality with one major styling gimmick.

AUSTIN MONTEGO ESTATE PART 2 • We make a start on the body repairs to our rather forlorn Montego estate, knowing that if this first cut reveals anything too horrific, the project could well be over before it has really begun.
TRACING THE LEAKS
