To mark Father's Day 2022, our team of writers steal the keys to their dad’s classic cars and take them for a spin to the Great British Car Journey in Derbyshire. From MG Midget to Citroën Dyane, we recall our favourite moments from the cars owned by our parents.
Meanwhile, there are unique restorations galore in the mag this month, with tales of an Triumph-engined ‘MGB GT6’, a VW Golf Mk1 rebuild, and a Jaguar XJ40 with a BMW diesel engine! You'll find a guide to all-things Volvo 300 and ask if buying a Range Rover Mk3 would be a bad idea, while our team gets stuck into their projects at the Practical Classics workshop. Plus, we choose between a Lotus Carlton and a BMW M5 on our Fantasy Forecourt and we hit the road to Scotland, for a fuel-efficient jaunt around the Aberdeenshire coast in classics that won’t cost you a fortune. No other classic car mag does this much!
Practical Classics magazine buys, restores and drives - Just like our readers!
