PRACTICAL CLASSICs - december 2018
In the latest issue of Practical Classics...
…we tell the story of a man whose workmates at Nissan in Sunderland saved the day when he became terminally ill, and helped him finish his dream E-Type restoration. It’s a humbling tale of heroism, courage and friendship.
Also in the magazine this month, we take the brutish Chevette HS out for a high speed drive at the iconic Millbrook Proving Ground to see how it handles forty years on from its launch. Plus, we take a look at marketing masterstroke that were MG Rover’s ‘Z Cars’ and how the nation was captivated by a group of surefire modern classics.
Elsewhere, Sam Glover reveals the car he intends to use for his around the world adventure and there’s loads of essential tech advice and tips. No other magazine does what Practical Classics does!

Sam Glover recently mulled over the best British car to use for a round-the-world road trip. His specification was as follows: good ground clearance; rugged and pliable suspension; minimal weight; ease of repair without specialist equipment; no non-user-serviceable electronics; 60mph cruising speed; enough grunt to overtake trucks and climb mountains; sensible fuel consumption; decent accommodation.
