This one’s all about YOU! We’ve been featuring your classics and your restorations for more than 40 years in the mag but this month, there’s an extra special focus on what your car really means to you and why. There’s a report on a mass gathering at our workshop and we hit the road to meet enthusiasts from every corner of the UK, discovering classics of all eras and types from Alfa Spider to Vauxhall Viva.

We head for Scotland and in the shadow of the Forth Bridge meet the man whose MG Midget has been brought back to life after almost 50 years of ownership and racing success, while there’s a look at the rusty array of garden finds in Rust in Peace – including a mouldy Peugeot 504 Cabrio.

We get stuck into four rally-bred heroes in the form of Quattro, Impreza, Sierra Cosworth and Delta Integrale. In fact, we were so blown away by the Lancia, there’s an in-depth guide on how to buy the best. Meanwhile, we get under the skin of the Honda Civic Type R and bag ourselves a couple of Bangernomics bargains – a Mercedes SLK and a Nissan Micra.

Over at the workshop, we’re getting stuck into a Triumph TR6, Citroën AX, Austin Seven and Reliant Scimitar and, as usual, present some extremely hand tips on restoring and maintaining your classic.
