PRACTICAL CLASSICs - JULY 2019
In the latest issue of Practical Classics...
In the new issue of Practical Classics, we celebrate fifty years of the Ford Capri, by driving the first and the last through some truly stunning Welsh countryside with a couple of Capri nuts – and ask exactly what it is we love about this iconic Brit GT.
There’s restoration action in the form of a Triumph 2.5Pi and a Vauxhall Astra GTE, plus the Practical Classics team get stuck into their own projects, including a Wolseley 2200, Triumph TR6 and Citroen CX.
We check out some wallet-friendly modern classic city cars and essential buying tips if you’re thinking of buying an MGB or a BMW E46.
Plus – we give you more advice and tips on restoring and maintaining your classic than any other magazine!

THE PRACTICAL CLASSICS TEAM AND THEIR PROJECTS
We’ve been hard at work again this month, with Danny reviving his stunning Wolseley Landcrab to James buying a dream CX and restoring his dad’s Dyane. Matt George perfects his TR6 and Matt Tomkins is all about saving his MGB GT. There’s loads of tech advice too on restoring and maintaining your classic. No other classic car magazine has this much variety each month!
