The March issue of Practical Classics is packed with all your favourite features, technical tips, workshop fun and buying information. In fact, it's the only monthly classic magazine you'll ever need.

Mike Brewer – one half of Wheeler Dealers – joins us for the latest issue of Practical Classics. For once, he’s not helping to restore a car for somebody else – he’s doing it for himself. He’s taken a rather scruffy Camaro SS and spent a great deal of time and trouble to rejuvenate it, turning the car into the Chevy he’s always wanted.

You can read about the second part of our romp around the north of England in a group of affordable classics. Each challenged to buy a car for less than £750, we ended up with an Austin Maxi, Volvo 164, Skoda Estelle and a Peugeot 104. Will the gang manage to conquer the mountains of the Lake District?

On a more serious note, the team has been busy finding you the finest restorations in the land. There’s the chap who – after restoring an MGB and Morris Minor – turned his expertise to a Riley, and got more than he ever bargained for. We also meet the man who turned an Austin Ambassador into the world’s most remarkable home-made camper van – which has to be seen to be believed.

Coupled with the restoration of a Jaguar Mk2 police patrol car and a TVR buying guide, we present some of the most handy how-to guides available and show you what cars the Practical Classics staff are currently restoring – including a Jensen Interceptor, Citroen Ami 8, BMW M535i and a Triumph TR6.
