This month, our team of writers go back to 1982 to celebrate a range of family cars launched in that period and recall their own memories of the Class of ’82, from Ford Sierra and Vauxhall Cavalier to Citroën BX, Austin Ambassador and BMW 3-Series.
Meanwhile, there’s a superb 160bhp TF-powered MG Midget home restoration, a Ford Puma that was rescued from the rust and in-depth guides to buying two futuristic fancies in the form of the NSU Ro80 and Honda Insight. We also take a £100 Alfa Romeo back to Italy via the Alps and choose our favourite Porsche. Plus, top tips and advice on restoring and maintaining your classic from the Practical Classics workshop, where we give advice on servicing your Morris Minor, refurbishing a MacPherson strut and measuring really small stuff… All in one massive magazine!
