Classic Military Vehicle Magazine #152 HUMBER HEAVY UTILITY Back Issue

English 31 Reviews   •  English   •   Aviation & Transport (Automotive) Only $9.99
The letter I recently got from a young reader (see
page 15) asking about the relative investment value
of a range of popular military vehicles set me thinking.
You can see my answer – or the best answer I could
give to a difficult question in the space available –
which in a nutshell was to not get too bogged down
with the investment aspect but to start with something
manageable on which he would gain knowledge and
experience.
You may or may not agree, or you might think I
was dodging the question. But you have to consider
that if you buy a fully restored vehicle at the top of
the market, your investment will take a lot longer to
appreciate than it would have done had you bought a
project vehicle and added value yourself by restoring it.
Presuming, that is, you have the skills to do so. Hence
my point about gaining knowledge and experience.
This month’s cover feature, Chris Morter’s Humber, is
a fine example, and Rick Wedlock’s Cromwell that was
featured last month is probably an even better one.
Chris and Rick both bought ‘sow’s ears’ and turned
them into ‘silk purses’, upping their value considerably.
It would be a gross exaggeration to use the phrase
‘wrecks to riches’ when discussing such projects, but
it does suggest that the best advice that ambitious young
readers can be given is to pick up the practical skills
that will enable them to add value to whatever it is they choose to buy. And, of course, to keep reading CMV !

Best Military Vehicle Mag Out there

There are many specialist military vehicle mags, but this one is still the best for the range of topics / articles and quality. Reviewed Monday, 1 October 2018

Found it again

Didn't know this magazine was still going as its not in my local shop anymore. Great to find it still is and thinking about a digital subscription now as it is so much cheaper, and I think I prefer the digital version without the staples in it. Reviewed Tuesday, 16 July 2013
