FAMILY TIES • Lee Pace inherited a love of Ford's Consul Classic and Capri from his father Mick, and the two of them combined to produce this truly gorgeous example of the Capri line.
TRAVELLING ON • After 52 years with just two owners, it is time for this Morris Traveller called Gwendoline to be moving on.
THE VAUXHALL CARS THAT NEVER WERE • Mike Taylor continues his talk with gifted designer Wayne Cherry about some of the Vauxhall concept cars that have captured his imagination. This issue we look at four cars: Silver Bullet, Black Magic, Silver Aero and Equus.
A LABOUR OF LOVE • There is more to a classic car than just pounds and pence. John Bennett's Humber Sceptre is a perfect example of why the cost of our hobby is never as important as the pleasure it brings.
PROJECT MGB GT • Rob Hawkins ticks off several jobs on our MGB GT, including servicing the brakes, fixing a couple of leaky alloy wheels, plus replacing two old tyres and a cracked number plate.

BMW Z3 PROJECT • This month we finish panel preparation, get those panels painted and bolt the everything back together. Our BMW is now looking like a car again!
AFFORDABLE PRESTIGE • Fancy taking your motoring life to a new level with something a little exotic or out of the ordinary, but don't have silly amounts of money to spend? Here are 15 classics that you might want to consider.
AUSTIN A125 SHEERLINE 1947-1954 • Who on earth made this vast land yacht of a luxury car? Why, Austin of course – purveyor of fine motor cars to leaders of industry.
LOTUS ESPRIT S3 • Get some James Bond style on your driveway without breaking the bank. Just stay away from the boating lake.
