IAIN AYRE IT'S TOO MUCH AGGRO

ROD KER POWER TO THE PEDAL

LONGBRIDGE LEGACY • Some cars are neglected and fall by the wayside, others are more fortunate and get restored. Only a select few are lucky enough to be maintained in perfectly original condition from new. Romer Adams' Austin Somerset is one of them.

THE FINAL FLOURISH • Some models go out of production with a bang, others exit the automotive stage with a whimper. Just where the Vauxhall VX 490 fits on this spectrum is still up for debate.

READERS' CARS ROOTES' ROCKET SUNBEAM TIGER • Sunbeam V8 Tigers are not exactly two-a-penny, but some are rarer than others. This one happens to be an extremely rare RHD Mk2 example, and owes its very existence to an unusual set of circumstances.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT... MG T-TYPES • MG’s family of T-Type roadsters never left their pre-war origins behind, but carried the Abingdon company all the way through to 1955. Here are a few of the more trivial things that happened along the way.

WELCOME TO THE UK • Styled in the UK along American lines and built by Ford in South Africa, our newest project car is a Mk3 Cortina with heritage that spans three continents. It is also a perfect slice of 1970s nostalgia that turns heads wherever it goes, and just happens to be a delight to drive as well. What more could you ask for?

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.

CHEAP AND CHEERFUL? • Flush from the success of our Project Shoestring Acclaim, we go shopping once more in the classic car bargain basement and this time end up with a 141A Fiat Panda.

PROJECT BLOWER BENTLEY • Rob Hawkins doesn’t like the look of the rusty fuel pipes and perished hoses under our Bentley, so he replaces them and the fuel filter, and also the aging drivebelts.

AUSTIN MONTEGO ESTATE • Having cut a big hole in the roof of our project Montego, the time has come to start filling it in. Unfortunately this repair is made up of a rather complex combination of panels that needs careful shaping and patient layering back up.

TENG TOOLS®

ROVER P6 • Rover’s P6 saloon from the 1960s and 1970s was regarded as advanced for its time, and today it is a very practical and usable classic. Here’s what you need to know if you are thinking of buying one.
