Practical Classics February 2023
This month, the Practical Classics writers set off in search of some truly hostile wintry locations on their annual winter road trip! Jumping aboard their own classics, this year we head for the Lake District and attempt to drive all the highest mountain passes in torrential rain. From Alfa to Triumph, James attempts it in his freshly restored 2CV, Charlotte braves the elements in her MGA while Tomkins repairs his broken MGB on Britain’s steepest road. Heroics, winter weather and great friendships… what classic ownership is all about!
Elsewhere in the issue this month, there’s an extraordinary DIY E-type restoration, a brave Mk2 Cavalier revival and in-depth guides to buying a Rover SD1 and Mk1 MX-5. We choose our dream Alfa Romeo and there’s a lesson in how to bag a mini camper for peanuts. In workshop, we give you tips on everything from brakes and rustproofing to fixing air con. No other mag does quite this much!
