PRACTICAL CLASSICs - NovemBER 2019
In the latest issue of Practical Classics...
…we celebrate two big birthdays! The Mini is 60 this year but while the diminutive motor might have attained legendary status, we showcase the talents of its underrated bigger sister, the Maxi, which celebrates 50 years in 2019. We hop into a pair of stunning examples on the King’s Road for the full story.
Elsewhere in the mag this month, you’ll find a superb Astra GTE restoration, an interview with a hero of the wondrous world of Lucas electrics and an Austin A40 buying guide. We find a Ford Capri that’s used as a daily commuter and present all the news from the Practical Classics workshop where many of our projects are beginning to take shape – from Tomkins’ Austin Seven to Danny’s Renault 14 and loads more besides!

THE PRACTICAL CLASSICS TEAM AND THEIR PROJECTS
More French rust appears courtesy of Editor Danny Hopkins (and his Renault 14) and Deputy Editor James Walshe’s 2CV this month! Sam Glover is messing with his Panhard but Tomkins is bucking the trend this month with his Austin Seven purchase!
Check out more of our latest projects at the Practical Classics workshop and find out how we plan to get them back on the road!
