PRACTICAL CLASSICs - OCTOBER 2018
In the latest issue of Practical Classics...
In the new issue of Practical Classics (Oct 2018), we celebrate five decades of three British legends: The Jaguar XJ6, Reliant Scimitar and Triumph TR6. We drive the cars from their factories of of birth in the Midlands to the Thruxton Circuit, which also celebrates its 50th birthday this year.
We also meet a man who pulled out all the stops to restore his stunning Opel Manta and we present an in-depth interview with Denis Chick, a PR guru who first walked into his job at the Rover plant in 1965, ahead of a fascinating career.
There are updates on the latest projects in our workshop – including Editor Danny’s Riley, which is being prepared for the Classic Motor Show in November – plus we deposit Deputy Editor Walshe into the French countryside where he tries to buy a classic in which to drive home again.
Add to that, a Peugeot 306 buying guide and page upon page of technical advice, there really is no magazine quite like Practical Classics.

RUST IN PEACE
Every month, we bring you the very best of our scrapyard finds - be they Austins nestled in hedgerows of Devon or Capris (like this one) found slumped in a yard in the deserts of America. Check out our 'Rust in Peace' pages in the new issue of Practical Classics and see what you might be able to save...
