OUR MOTLEY CREW OF SHED-DWELLERS STEP OUT INTO THE DAYLIGHT TO LEAD READERS TO THE SUNLIT UPLANDS OF AUTOMOTIVE KNOWLEDGE – FINDING ’EM, FIXING ’EM, STARTING ’EM, STOPPING ’EM, FLINGING ’EM

Inside this month

MORLEY’S WORKSHOP 112

Dave’s enjoying a bit of a rant about the evils of too much tech and coming to terms with Ford Model A engines actually flying. Oh, and he’s heard the final word on GT500 fuel tanks.

READER’S RESTO: JAGUAR E-TYPE ROADSTER 124

Blokes like Chris Larkham are ornaments to the game of car restos. We’re glad they are.

OUR SHED 132

Glenn Torrens gets in touch with his Viking DNA with the purchase of a hard-to-find Volvo coupe. Morley’s getting tyred, or more accurately his Commodore is – note he used to call it ‘Project Duckshit’ and now it’s ‘the hillclimber’. Something’s changed.

BLACKBOURN 138

Daniel Ricciardo seems to have made his mark on our Mr B – in a big way.

FAINE 139

Replacing the velour seats in the Goddess with the nice low-mileage leather set can’t be too hard. Surely. Turns out the young Jon found it to be a bit of a challenge.

READERS’ RIDES 140

Wally O’Hea was pleased to get himself a nice 1974 LH Torana. Once he’d had the rust sorted he would be Mr Happy. Much time and money later as well as a few hundred horsepower later, he is finally Mr Happy. Jeff Gilman is another fond car owner. His is a nice 1963 Futura convertible.

CLUB TALES 146

Car enthusiasts clubs are about way more than social activities. The pooling of knowledge, the sharing of contacts, the sourcing of spares all make life easier and more enjoyable for classic car owners.
