News: CAR OF THE MONTH – STEPHEN PARRISH AND HIS 1934 CITROEN ROSALIE

The public reaction to Stephen’s Citroen Rosalie 10CV (who, of course, goes by the name “Rosie”) is often one of surprise – ‘most people have never seen one or didn’t realise that Citroen’s were ever built in the UK and the fact it is a RWD surprises most’.

News: MEET THE OWNER – STEPHEN HITCHCOCK AND HIS AUSTIN A35 VANS

‘I’ve always been more a van man than car man’ remarks Stephen Hitchcock and, as proof, he is the proud owner of not one but two Austin A35s. The 1959 orange example has been a part of his fleet for the past two years and the grey (and red) 1960 model since 2004 - ‘I used it to advertise my business’.

News: MEET THE OWNER – STEPHEN DAWES AND HIS ONE FAMILY FROM NEW FIAT 124

Sometimes, when writing about classic cars, you come across a vehicle that is incredibly rare – so rare, in fact, that you cannot remember seeing one on the road in the past three decades. Stephen Dawes’s 124 is not only one of the very few examples left; it is also a one-family-from new Fiat.

News: MEET THE OWNERS – STEPHEN AND SUSAN ROSE AND THEIR 1969 AUSTIN MAXI

If you are devotee of archive television (which I certainly am) one of the major fascinations is the street scenes.

News: MEET THE OWNER – STEPHEN COLVIN AND HIS MORRIS METRO VAN

No, this is not a misprint, as the Morris badged version is one of the rarest and most desirable models to devotees of the Metro. Virtually any car-based light commercial of the 1980s has a very poor survival rate, but the early Metro van is probably now a more unusual sight than an MG 6R4. Not to mention offering considerably better fuel economy.

News: MEET THE OWNER – STEPHEN LEWIS AND HIS HUMBER IMPERIAL

If you owned a new Humber Imperial in 1966, you were almost certainly one of the elite members of your local tennis club. Not only was it a car as imposing as James Robertson Justice in Doctor in Clover, but the list of standard fittings was also positively lavish.

News: Meet The Owners – Rebecca And Stephen’s Mini Jet Black and Red Hot

Back in 1988, the Mini Jet Black was your passport to Yuppie success – all for a mere £4,282. Not only did it boast tinted glass, a push-button radio, front head restraints and black velour trim, there were even red seat belts to match the proud owner’s braces. Matching the Mini that looks ‘Smooth on The Streets’ was the “Red Hot” – ‘Hot Stuff For Cold Nights!’.

News: The Latest Star of the British Motor Museum - A 1971 Morris Marina De Luxe

Many readers will have learned to regard the term ‘time warp classic’ with suspicion as it all too often refers to an eBay “bargain” that Albert Steptoe, let alone Arthur Daley, would have rejected.

News: LAST YEARS 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PROFESSIONALS

‘Anarchy. Acts of terror. Crimes against the public. To combat it, I've got special men. Experts from the army, the police; from every service. These are the professionals’.

News: DVD OF THE WEEK – THE IPCRESS FILE

In the mid-1960s British cinema offered you a choice of two spy film heroes, both with a score from John Barry – and both with memorable official transport.

News: DVD OF THE WEEK - CHRISTINE

On the 23rd January, the nominations for the 90th Academy Awards were announced, which prompted me to think of the many cinematic greats and near-misses with the name of the car in the titles.

News: The 2018 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show – Part 1

My first impression of the 2018 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show was merely this – any Austin Maxi will now turn heads, but a Maxi with a fawn vinyl roof and a Webasto is not so much eye-catching as utterly decadent.
