In this issue, we celebrate the cars of our parents and, in time for Father’s Day, take a look at the cars our dads drove. From a Rover P6 and Austin 1800 to an Audi 100, Fiat 128 and Renault Scenic, we drive our fleet of ‘Dad Cars’ to a unique new visitor attraction in Derbyshire where we get behind the wheel of everyday classics.

There’s a spin anything from a Mini, Imp and Minor to an Avenger, Viva and a Sierra! Elsewhere in the mag, there’s an essential guide to the Land Rover Defender, advice on how to buy an Alfa Romeo 166 and we pay a visit to our Fantasy Forecourt to decide which we’d choose out of a Jaguar XJ220, Ferrari F50 and Lamborghini Diablo.

Back down to earth, we feature a very 21st century restoration of an Opel Manta and action from our own workshop where you’ll read about Morris Marina and Austin Seven projects, as well as an eventful 2CV trip to Cornwall and back. There are also updates on project cars including a Triumph 2000, Reliant Scimitar, Austin 1300 GT and a Mercedes 190E. And of course in-depth advice on how to restore, fix and maintain your classic.
