Your classic: Triumph TR4A Classic & Sports Car
Your classic: Triumph TR4A. Back in 2008, this 1965 Triumph TR4A was part of an executor’s auction of 28 classic motorcycles, including Manx Nortons, and four classic cars.

Guilty pleasures: Chrysler 2 Litre Classic & Sports Car
In the early 1980s, my first job was as a car cleaner at a Hyundai/Subaru dealer located at a bleak little spot near Hyde, on the outskirts of Manchester.

AC 428: a Cobra for the jet set Classic & Sports Car
AC 428: a Cobra for the jet set. The trend towards Euro-American hybrids had almost peaked by the time that AC got its act together with the 428 in the late 1960s. The moment had passed: Jensen seemed to have cornered the market for such cars, with Bristol and others mopping up the leftovers. Gordon-Keeble, meanwhile, had shown what happens to

Ex marks the spot: driving the Dodge Polara Classic
1 day ago · Ex marks the spot: driving the Dodge Polara. As the early post-war period gave way to the 1950s, the interstate highways and parking lots of middle America were still populated by the stuffy, serious and ordinary designs of an earlier generation.

Compact quality: Neckar Europa vs Lancia Appia vs Auto
1 day ago · Compact quality: Neckar Europa vs Lancia Appia vs Auto Union 1000S vs Saab 96. Six decades ago, in a country where you could buy a perfectly acceptable Austin A40, Morris Minor or Ford Anglia for £600, it’s easy to see why the imported European 1-litre competition struggled to make itself relevant with price-tags of up to £1500 or more.

19. Jaguar XJ40. Target price: £1.5-6k. ‘Best saloon in the world!’ claimed 1980s road testers wowed by the XJ40’s J-gate gear selector, new AJ6 engines and a digital dashboard that seemed to have been cobbled together out of an early 1970s calculator.
This 175-mile MG Metro 6R4 could be yours Classic

20 undervalued classic cars from the 1970s Classic
3. BMW E3 3.0Si. Target price: £10,000-25,000. While prices for BMW’s classic E9 coupé have gone interstellar, its four-door brother remains a relative bargain.

19 undervalued classic cars from the 1990s Classic
If you prefer your four rings roofless, the TT roadster didn’t go on sale until 2000, so doesn’t quite sneak into this list. But the classy 80-based Audi Cabriolet, once made famous by Princess Di, is another car set for classic status. 7. Porsche Boxster. Target price: £5-9k.

NSU Ro80 buyer’s guide: what to pay and what to look for
Almost the ultimate development of a car as radical as the Ro80, apart from its dated engine, the DS21 was lively with Bosch D-Jetronic injection but seemed a bit quirky by the 1970s. Sold 1955-’75 • No. built 1,415,719 • Mpg 20-25 • 0-60mph 11.2 secs • Top speed 114mph • Price new £2250 (1970) • Price now £15-30,000.

Wild child restored: Renault 5 Turbo 2 Classic & Sports Car
Wild child restored: Renault 5 Turbo 2. The prospect of a turbocharged 1.4-litre hatchback wouldn’t usually get too many juices flowing. But this is not your average French hot hatch.

Dream drives: B4425, Burford Classic & Sports Car
Turn right on to the A40 (with care, it’s fast and busy), then down to the roundabout and take the first exit into Burford, a classic Cotswolds village with lots of pubs on a steeply descending high street that ends in a narrow single-file bridge over a river. On the other side you can go left to Stow-on-the-Wold, but for our purposes take
Seductive saloon: Lancia Aurelia B12 Classic & Sports Car
Lancia (England) sold 130 GMG to George Roberts Engineers in 1957, the firm retaining the B12 until 1964 when it was disposed of to a property developer from Datchet called Nelson Masters.

Six of the best: AC Greyhound vs Bristol 406 Zagato
Fifty years ago, these two must have topped the league as a way of spending the most amount of money on the least amount of car. In fact, in 1960 there was no more expensive 2-litre car for sale anywhere in the world than the near-£5000 Bristol 406 Zagato.. Six were created at the behest of Tony Crook when he was still Anthony Crook Motors Ltd (the UK …
This 1947 Lea-Francis was The Beatles’ ticket to ride
The beautiful 1947 Lea-Francis 14hp Drophead Coupé sold yesterday at H&H Classics' Duxford sale, making £14,625 (including the premium).

Bristol 401-403 buyer’s guide: what to pay and what to

Driving record-breaker Sir Henry Segrave’s Sunbeam Twin
“For quality and history, the Twin Cam is considerably cheaper than its rivals,” says specialist John Polson, who at the time of writing had the ex-Segrave beauty for sale at £175,000, a figure that wouldn’t cover the restoration costs today. “They’ve always been bought by enthusiasts who know and understand great vintage cars.
One man’s mission to restore a Riley One Point Five
For a lot of people, stripped of their productivity, daily focus and sense of purpose, retirement can be a difficult period of adjustment. Morpeth-based David Cromarty didn’t have time to consider any of that, for one simple reason: “I bought a Riley One Point Five.”. Little did he know that it would turn him into an adventurer, scouring the length of Great Britain, a part-time …
20 classic cars that make surprisingly good daily drivers
Lotus Excel. The forgotten gem in Lotus’ ’80s line-up packs the same all-alloy 2.2-litre engine as that in the S3 Esprit, but with a far more family-friendly 2+2 set-up. The transaxle layout ensures perfect 50:50 weight distribution and the glassfibre bodies last well, but watch for corroded door bars. Saab 900.
Patience pays: Simca 1000 Rallye 2 Classic & Sports Car
Throw in super-sticky tyres and unyielding dampers, and all sense of normality evaporates. The car’s owner, João Lacerda, likens his Simca 1000 Rallye 2 to a go-kart, and the analogy is apposite. It really is a hoot to drive. It sounds busy, the twin Webers gurgling and spitting, the blare from the exhaust being commotion itself.
MG RV8 buyer’s guide: what to pay and what to look for
MG RV8: what to look for. Bodywork. See above for trouble spots. Engine. Frequent oil changes are vital to preserve the health of the Rover V8 engine – its oilways are prone to sludging up if the lubricant is not changed at least every 3000 miles, or annually for little-used cars. Slight oil weeps are normal, but excessive leaks are not.
Why there’s nothing like Don Hayter’s MGB V8 Roadster
There have been several attempts to keep the ‘Abingdon Octagon’ on British roads – the RV8, the MGF and TF, the Z family, and now the MG6 and MG3 – but it’s fair to say that none have captured the buying public’s enthusiasm in the way that the MGB did.. Of course, times have changed, and in a marketplace that is now littered with accomplished, gutsy two-seaters …

Vegantune Evante: the brilliant sports car you’ve probably
Vegantune’s version, the evocatively named (but largely meaningless) Evante, was more true to type, rejecting modern developments such as anti-lock brakes and fuel injection in favour of rorty Dell’Ortos and a sackful of horsepower. A 0-60mph time of 6.4 secs makes this quick and pretty.
