MEMORY LANE

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN 1973?

25 ESSENTIAL DRIVES • 25 years ago CAR Magazine chose its greatest drives. Today, we revisit the theme with some of the original team

HEROES WE WOULD LIKE TO MEET • The CAR Magazine of 1997 retained its controversial edge, with writers choosing classics they thought were either disappointing or in some cases downright bad. Hindsight has since led those same journalists to some regret, so we’ve instead focused on the positives of our ‘hero’ cars...

LEGENDS IN THEIR OWN LIFETIME • Back in 1997, the CAR writers chose their motoring icons. We couldn’t disagree with a couple of their choices, but replacing an Italian hypercar with a Swedish estate? You bet. Welcome to 2022’s legends in their own lifetime!

CARS THAT DEFINE THEIR DIFFERENT CLASSES • The age of uniformity had really taken hold in 1997. CAR reasoned their choices in this category were bursting with exuberance and were the kind of machines that attracted us to cars in the first place. Who are we to disagree? Here are our choices…

THE CARS YOU MAY NOT DREAM OF BUT SHOULD • The choices made 25 years ago reflect the cars felt to be the biggest surprises, yet all are now admired... here are our 2022 nominees...

CARS YOU COULD LIVE WITH FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE • This category was, according to CAR in 1997, about ‘the art of compromise’. In the pursuit of usability combined with a thrill or two, the writers back then chose four Germans and a Saxo VTS. Times have changed and we’ve gone our own way in 2022. Here’s what we’d go for now...

‘We moved to Scotland and never looked back!’ • The story of Kyle and Aaron Clark’s passion for cars began long before they were born

Blaze of GLORY • Marc simply had to rescue this £300 Peugeot 306 Cabriolet after it nearly went up in flames

An inspiring read
