THE ART OF SWEARING

THE ROAD TO BUXTON

THINKING BIG • Jaguar's MkX managed to combine the grace of a ballerina with the intimidating bulk of a rugby forward. That's not an easy trick to pull off, but then again Jaguar were always good at doing the impossible.

CASTLECHROME.

A PROFESSIONAL RESTORATION • Joey English is a massive fan of the Ford Capri, and also a massive fan of the 1970s/1980s TV show, The Professionals. Sometimes one passion feeds the other, as this silver Mk3 3.0S demonstrates.

A RARE TREAT • Ivan Ostroff gets shown around a 1934 Austin 12/4 DHC, one of only two thought to have survived with bodywork by coachbuilder Gordon of Sparkbrook, and then he is given the ultimate treat of taking it for a test drive.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT... • Like a steel magnolia, the MGA’s achingly pretty exterior hid a core which was as tough as old boots. It brought MG’s sports cars into the modern era in the 1950s, and is a staple of the classic scene today. Here are a few snippets of fairly useless trivia that we’ve gleaned from that journey.

RELIANT REGAL 3/25 DE-LUXE • Quirky, knackered, rather scruffy and difficult to get going... but that’s enough about bodywork maestro Alan Denne, let’s talk instead about our newest project car! It’s a 1968 Relaint Regal De-Luxe, and you could be forgiven for asking: ‘Why?’ Simon Goldsworthy does his best to explain.

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 TR7 • We continue working through the niggles that came with our TR7, sorting one problem that is not as serious as we had feared and making progress on another that may seem innocuous, but could actually end up presenting a bigger problem.

PROJECT ROVER 95 • After our success last issue in correcting a wiring fault to the overdrive that allowed it to engage in any gear, we have a couple of smaller victories to relate this time around.

ENGINE PROBLEMS

ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER SHADOW • Discover what you need to know if you are looking to buy a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow or equivalent Bentley manufactured from 1965-1980.

CLASS OF ONE

A Salesman’s Story • Romer Adams recalls three decades of working as a car salesman, starting in the glory days of the British car industry and selling Morris, Austin and other marques from the BMC empire for Henlys in Northamptonshire.

FOCUS ON VAUXHALL • Vauxhall started to manufacture cars in 1903. Bought by...
