The Practical Classics writers head for the Isle of Man for the very first time! They hit the road in their cars – from Morris Traveller and MGB to Mitsubishi GTO and Smart Roadster – and find out what makes the island tick, exploring the most astonishing car museum they’ve been to in years while enjoying some of the best roads on earth.

Meanwhile this month, we tell the story of a truly extraordinary Rover P6, Citroen CX and Mini Cooper, discover what’s in the bushes in the pages of Rust in Peace and tell you how to buy the very bestFord Cortina Mk1. We also explain why it’s time to bag yourself aVauxhall Nova. There’s also a load more pages than usual dedicated to you and your car this month – we’ve been finding out why you love your classic, with a range of beautiful stories to warm the cockles.

Plus, there’s loads of action from the Practical Classics workshop where we’re explaining diesel engines and solving propshaft problems, as well as fixing up a Scimitar, Saab 900, Land Rover Freelander and Paul Cowland’s Volvo V70. No other car magazine does this much!
