We buy, restore, maintain and enjoy – like no other magazine! This month: Fast family fun! We choose one car from each of the past five decades and take a spin in the hot version. From the Sunbeam Stiletto to the Peugeot 306 GTi6, there’s a sporty family car from every era to get your teeth into in this month’s Practical Classics.

In the second part of our first ever big adventure to the Isle of Man, the team visits the Laxey Wheel, a horse-powered tram and gets a dose of steam train action – as well as taking to the island’s roads in search of the perfect corner.

Elsewhere in the mag, you’ll find a stunning California-specAustin America and the restoration of both a Humber Super Snipe Estate and TVR Grantura – plus in-depth guides to the BMW 8-series and Renault 16.

At the workshop, Nathan fixes up his 300,000-mile Alfa and visits some dogs, while Tomkins has a crack at repairing his Land Rover and Theo gets dirty with some classic French diesels. No other car magazine does this kind of thing – come join the club!
