Motoring Classics Winter 2011

In this issue, we feature a pair of icons – the inanimate but incomparable Jaguar E-type, the 50th anniversary celebrations of which are now drawing to a close, and the father of such unlikely siblings as the Lotus Elan and the Black & Decker Workmate, Ron Hickman OBE.

For those keen on the idea of classic motoring but not currently endowed with an appropriate car, we detail how and where they can be hired from, and give details of how your MGB engine can be usefully updated for modern motoring.

British Motor Heritage’s MD, John Yea, brings us up to date with the Motoring Classics-sponsored Thoroughbred Sportscar racing series, as well as his own rewarding season behind the wheel of the BMH MGB.

Talking of the ubiquitous MGB, it’s another great British classic with a big birthday on the horizon and we give you a taste of how we and others will be celebrating that in 2012. Last, but by no means least, we bring you another competition to have a crack at and provide you with a few classic Christmas present ideas for your friends and loved ones.

By the time you read this, most people’s pride and joy will be tucked up until next year, safe from the ravages of what promises to be another harsh winter. But, before we know it, the new season of shows, concours, races etc will be upon us. A classic car enthusiast’s life is never quiet for long!
