In the new issue of Practical Classics magazine, we take an in-depth look at cars that signalled the end of the line for their makers. From the Austin Montego, Riley Kestrel and Wolseley Wedge, to the innovative NSU Ro80 and svelte Saab 9-5, plus the Talbot Samba and Matra Rancho, Triumph Acclaim, Morris Ital and Rover 75… we tell the story of each car.
We also present the ultimate guide to the first generation Range Rover and dish out advice on buying the best VW Corrado and showcase two outstanding restorations – a Jaguar XJ40 and a Lancia Beta Coupe. There’s cheap and cheerful bangernomics action too, as Danny buys a bargain Polo and James bags himself his tenth Citroën C5!
You’ll also find advice on how to refresh your diff and creating your perfect tool chest - plus tips on replacing your discs and pads. And all the latest from our own restoration projects at the Practical Classics workshop, including a Jaguar XJ8, Citroen CX, Smart Roadster, Triumph 2000, Austin Seven, VW camper and Triumph GT6.
We’re the only classic car magazine that does it all!
