We celebrate the loosening of the lockdown and hit the road. Our team of writers finish fettling their projects and take a local spin for the first time for a series of shakedown tests, while Danny and James head for the mountains of Snowdonia on a work mission in two classics they bought for peanuts. Further afield, a dedicated Rover owner tells the story of his 3000-mile mission to Portugal in his P6.
There’s plenty of restoration action too, with the remarkable tale of a Mercedes SL revival and a unique Austin Metro, while Edd China shows us his workshop. Meanwhile, in our own workshop, there are restoration updates on Danny’s Marina and Matt’s Austin Seven – plus a Mazda MX-5, Citroën CX, Porsche Boxster and Morris Minor projects. There are also essential guides to buying a Cortina Mk3 and Suzuki Jimny, and top tips on repair and maintenance. We’re the only classic car magazine that does it all!
