Classic Car Buyer  |  Classic Car Buyer August 7 2013  


I’m sure I am not the only classic car owner who has thought, perhaps foolishly, the more cars you own the greater chance there is that at least one will always be driveable. How is it, then, that as I’ve gone from owning one car, to two, to three that I still hit periods where I can’t drive any of them?
In fairness my Land Rover is working perfectly but at the moment I’m having to store it over 100 miles from where I live, making its day-to-day practicality rather limited. As for the two cars I could actually drive, the one that works (the Metro) isn’t currently taxed and the one that’s road legal
(the Citroën) doesn’t work. The 2CV had been perfect for the heat wave of recent weeks, what with
the roll-back roof and no water or radiator to worry about and had been its usual dependable and
economical self. Editor-at-large Vollans and I had planned to go to the Silverstone Classic in what must be the world’s slowest but most fuel-efficient convoy – my 2CV and his diesel Škoda Felicia. But the Citroën refused to start. It cranked over willingly enough but there was no sign of life. A quick investigation showed plenty of fuel in the carburettor but a very weak spark at both plugs. Hopefully this will just be a case of resetting the points clearances and timing and normal service will
be resumed. In the short term the Škoda (probably the only car with an engine more dependable
and bombproof than the 2CV’s) came to the rescue, and you can read my report from Silverstone
in this issue. I’ve also been looking into the state and future of autojumbles for this week’s Hot Topic. Having noticed the changing face of autojumble at several shows I’ve been to recently it was interesting to talk to some people in the business and have my suppositions confirmed. Also in this issue Ian Cushway compares the Triumph TR5 – considered by many to be the finest of the TR range – with the still-controversial TR7. Ian also has a comprehensive guide to the early versions of the Mazda MX-5.

A good read

I like looking at the cars for sale, want to get something this year for up to £2,000. The news coverage is also interesting, just not sure if I want to get a years subscription so tend to buy single issues, but that is working out more expensive! Reviewed 16 July 2013

Great Magazine, even better digital

Living on the continent it makes no sense to subscribe to a weekly magazine when it's printed. With this digital version I have instant access to the comprehensive information on markets, current offers of classic cars and very informative and useful articles. I think it's the best brand-independent weekly magazine. Reviewed 19 June 2013
