Practical Classics March 2023

This month, we take a look at some of the greatest design icons in automotive history and show you how to buy one. From Avantime to Bond Bug, writer John Simister takes an in-depth look at how these unique cars came to be – including Renault 16, Saab 96, Rover SD1 and Volvo P1800 ES.

There are some superb restoration stories including brave efforts to revive a TVR Grantura and Rolls Royce Corniche, while there’s loads of action from the Practical Classics workshop, where our writers are tackling their own restorations from 2CV to Land Rover.

On that note, we get deep and dirty with Stromberg carbs, juddering brakes and give you tips on servicing and futureproofing your fuel system. Elsewhere in the mag, there are essential tips on buying a Ford Zephyr and a focus on BMW’s interpretation of the Mini, with an in-depth guide.

Plus, Craig Cheetham heads to Monaco in his £200 MG ZT!
