GHOSTS IN THE ATTIC

PUT TING THE FUN BACK INTO CL ASSIC MOTORING • It may be hard to believe when you look at the pictures, but Mike Rodgers bought this Mk2 Cortina 1300 Deluxe because it wasn't quite as good as his previous Escort!

A TANGLED WEB • Paul Dumphy's first car was a Peugeot 104, which he bought when he was just 16 years old. When he felt like revisiting his teenage years, he decided that a Talbot Samba would do just as well, and that a Cabriolet would be perfect.

A GREAT CHRISTMAS PRESENT! • Any Borgward Isabella is special, but this Coupé happens to be even more so than most, as owner Alex Cabellaro explains.

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT... • Triumph’s Spitfire was the right car at the right time, and it has since become the archetypal entry-level sports car on the classic scene. Being relatively cheap and very DIY friendly, it has also inspired a great many owners to experiment with developments that Triumph’s engineers had never even dreamed of.

Classic Car LEDs

PROJECT MGB GT • With the engine and gearbox removed from our MGB GT, we need to separate the two and replace the rear main oil seal, but discover more problems and jobs to fix.

DRIVER’S Diary

RELIANT REGAL 3/25 DE-LUXE • With the Regal’s body repaired and in primer plus its chassis welded, painted and injected with wax, this issue our attention turns to the engine, which proves to be rather frustrating.

PROJECT ROVER 95 • In the final report in this series, we bring you up to speed on the last of the major body repairs, and also tie up one or two loose ends.

JAGUAR XJS • People expected the XJS to be a successor to the E-type, and many were disappointed that it was more of a cruiser than a sports car. That was exactly what Jaguar intended though, and as a Grand Tourer it has no equal. If you fancy giving one a go, then this is what you need to know.

OPEN, SHUT CASE • Good-looking, well-designed and beautifully made, the Mercedes SLK perfected the art of the folding metal roof. These days, it is a classic in the making.

ROOTES THAT WITHERED • Mike Taylor recounts the fascinating tale of Rootes V8 models that could have been astonishingly quick, but which never made it into the showrooms.

THE FAMILY ALBUMS • Family photo albums make for wonderful viewing, encapsulating as they do both historic moments and the trivia of everyday life. Unfortunately, they often raise more questions than they answer.

How the other half lived • Clive Cussler left a literary legacy, and also created the incredible Cussler Museum in Denver, Colorado. The cars on display are a little more upmarket than we usually feature in Classics Monthly, but Michael...
