YOUNG AND FOOLISH

AN ETERNAL OPTIMIST

A BOX OF WONDERFUL VELOX BITS • Mick Johnson was handed a large pile of boxes when he took on a Vauxhall Velox in 2014, but he has turned it into a beautiful car. Phil Homer tells the story, and speculates as to why so few of this marque and model survive.

Ms SKYLARK AND HER BUICK • We all love our classic cars, but every so often you run into a classic car enthusiast who is infatuated. Someone like self-confessed petrolhead Jette Elizabeth Skylark of Copenhagen, who loves her car so much that she even adopted its name.

SMALL WONDER • Kevin Newman and Rich Briggs-Price have a wonderful collection of extremely desirable cars, but it is this Auto Union 1000 SP that remains closest to Kevin's heart.

DKW AND THE AUTO UNION

AMERICAN BEAUTY • This remarkably low-mileage and original 1976 Federal-spec XJ-S was recently imported back to the UK for recommissioning by a new owner. We find out the history behind this remarkable car, before driving it ourselves.

Getting the Blue Lady blues

My Chevy to the Levee

Interior decorating

Troubleshooting with Steve Rothwell

PROJECT PANDA • We uncover one or two horrors on our 1992 Panda’s inner sills, but also loads of good metal to which we could weld our home-made repair panels.

PROJECT TR7 • With the help of some lovely people at the TR Drivers Club, we get a TR7 convertible that promises to give us only a few minor headaches and a whole lot of driving fun. Well, that at least is the plan!

PROJECT ROVER 95 • We add a little luxury to the project fleet with the acquisition of this rather grand Rover P4 of 1964 vintage.

FORD: 1945-89 • For many years in the post-war era, the Ford UK sales juggernaut was virtually unstoppable. Welcome to our celebration of the cars that helped put them on top.

MGF AND TF BUYING GUIDE • Rob Hawkins explains what to look for when buying what is probably MG’s least expensive sports car.

TERIOS NOVA • Appearing just as the UK was waking up to the idea of the SUV, Daihatsu’s Terios deserved success. It was simple, characterful and useful, and a first-generation car is well worth considering today.
