from milan to coventry

It’s been said before in motoring circles (and long before Clarkson repeated it) that everyone should own an Alfa Romeo at least once, but lately I’ve been thinking that everyone should in fact own a Jaguar at least once. Stop and think about it and the two brands have more similarities than might immediately be obvious: both were built on style and performance and both endured periods of nationalisation, while both brands even had their share of controversial platform sharing ventures: if you need a parallel to the the Mondeo-based X-Type, then what about the Nissan Cherry-derived Arna? Both were in fact far better products than their detractors will tell you, although good luck tracking down an Arna if you want to find out for yourself. Both brands are also facing uncertain…

industry body aims to protect classic sector

Anew trade association has been set up to protect Britain’s classic vehicle industry and secure its long-term future from uncertainty caused by red tape and environmental legislation. The Historic and Classic Vehicles Alliance (HCVA) is a not-for-profit organisation that intends to campaign on behalf of individuals and companies in the classic vehicle sector, as well as instilling accountability, common standards and a code of conduct to the members who sign up. The group says that complex new rules around exporting and importing cars and parts to and from the EU, along with widespread misconceptions surrounding of the environmental impact of vintage motoring, is damaging owners’ confidence and enthusiasm. It believes that this is putting 113,000 jobs in peril and is calling on British politicians and regulators to use their post-Brexit independence…

britain’s cars getting older

Cars on Britain’s roads are getting older, according to Motorparc data released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), with vehicles from 2008 and earlier making up the largest percentage. For the second year running, there were more than 35m cars registered on UK roads (35,082,800), although that figure represents a modest 0.2 per cent dip as the pandemic stifled new vehicle uptake. The average age of a car in the UK has risen to 8.4 years, which is the oldest since records began 20 years ago and is considerably up from 6.3 years in 2003. The average car in the UK was built in 2011. Perhaps most remarkable is almost 10 million of the UK’s cars are more than 12 years old, accounting for 27.9 per cent of…

unique ‘avenger’ sells for £13k

ANorth American variant of the Rootes Avenger that never made it across the Atlantic has achieved an impressive £13,000 at auction.Sold via the Car and Classic platform, the 30,000-mile example is the only known right-hand-drive Plymouth Cricket in existence. It was apparently bought by its first owner from a UK garage that was known for dealing with and disposing of test cars and development models. Built in the UK but to full US specification, it features side marker lights, quad headlights from the GT and 9.5-inch disc brakes as standard. Unusually, this one has the later optional twin carbs but is fitted with US-market emissions gear. It was fully restored by its most recent owner, who had access to piles of NOS parts, meaning this 1500 Cricket looks superb and is…
