There are comprehensive buying guides, informative road tests, a nostalgic pull-out spread depicting a scene from the halcyon days of motoring, staff car sagas, guest columnists, market reviews, a detailed club directory and a regularly updated price guide. The publication is also packed with hundreds of cars and parts for sale in its Free Ads section, making it THE place to buy or sell your classic. There is a dedicated classifieds spread on classic commercial vehicles and machinery. Classic Car Buyer provides the best insight into bread and butter classics – every week!

Five of the Best: F1-inspired road cars • In memory of Frank Williams and inspired by the legendary hot Renault Clio that bore his name, we look back the times mainstream manufacturers leaned heavily on what were sometimes rather tenuous links with Formula 1 teams to give their road cars an extra dose of appeal.

REVIEW: HISTORICS, MERCEDES-BENZ WORLD, NOVEMBER 27

PREVIEW: CCA, STONELEIGH PARK, DECEMBER 11

Saloon-based Coupes • Nowadays, if a driver wants a car that gives them a sense of prestige or power, then they’ll probably buy an SUV. But in the past, manufacturers would far more regularly turn their saloon platforms into sporty coupes, rather than lofty crossovers. We look at a some snappy two-doors with humble origins.

Mk1 Ford Escorts • Ford’s small saloon for the late ’60s was supposed to be cheap and cheerful. Today it certainly has the last part down but as for the first bit – not so much. All Mk1 Escorts are worth significant amounts these days, but there’s still a big variance, as we detail here

CHOP-SHOP: VOLVO 780

VOLVO VOTES • As Volvo Cars goes public on the stock exchange, marking the dawn of yet another era for the storied Swedish car maker, the CCB team choose their favourite Volvos and consider some of the firm’s more oddball products

EAST MEETS WEST • Lexus was created to not only compete with the established names but beat them. But the old guard rallied. How do the second generation LS400 and BMW’s late-’90s 5-Series stack up in the on-going battle for premium supremacy?

Classic Scenes

OVERLOOKED OPULENCE • It’s the biggest-engined compact Jaguar of the ’60s but also one of the most overlooked, making the 420 and its Sovereign cousin an intriguing buy today.
