ROD KER A HA'PORTH OF TAR

PHIL WHITE THE LUST FOR LIFE

FIVE ALIVE! • The Austin A90 Atlantic prototype no.5 was shipped to Australia in 1949 to fill a gaping hole at the Melbourne International Motor Show. Seven decades on, it is still there and looks better than ever.

A VERY SPECIAL BGT • There were not many special editions in the MGB's long life, but this vision in green and gold was designed with just 750 examples in mind to celebrate a Golden Jubilee for the marque.

THE ULTIMATE RARITY? • Budget models rarely survive in significant numbers, not least because few owners were willing or able to invest money in maintenance and repair. Ian Macaulay's Yugo 513 has beaten the odds though, and is believed to be one of only two survivors in the UK.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT… THE JAGUAR E-TYPE • Jaguar’s awesome E-type has been a darling of the classic car scene for decades, and its popularity shows no sign of waning. Here is our tribute as we dig out some of the more trivial details behind this icon of an era.

FORD CORTINA MK3 PROJECT PART 8 • We tackle the final – and by far the most complex – of the structural repairs required on our ex-South African Cortina, and as usual what starts out as a small hole soon grows into a large one!

The final hurdle?

The good and the bad

A ‘Heinz 57’ Triumph Stag

Troubleshooting with Steve Rothwell • Our helpful Q&A hotline may be able to solve your classic-related problems, so why not email us at classics.ed@kelsey.co.uk and we’ll do our best to help.

PROJECT PANDA • It is time to sign off on Project Panda, but having grown so fond of it over the past year that I shall be keeping it on the Goldsworthy fleet.

Pick a gear; any gear… • Our voyage of discovery begins as we investigate why the gear stick feels like it is stirring a bowl of porridge.

PROJECT ROVER 95 • Last issue we introduced our P4 project – a 1964 Rover 95 model that had been retro-fitted with overdrive from a Rover 110. This issue, we ask various experts to help us assess the car and start compiling a list of jobs to do.

KIT CAR CLASSICS • There has always been a gap between kit cars and classic cars, but what happens when older kit cars become classic cars in their own right? We reveal some of the industry’s more collectible offerings.
