“now we’re metroing”

We all love to dream about E-Types and DB5s, but it’s a fair bet that most readers will have anecdotes surrounding the humble Metro… a car which has now been with us for almost exactly 40 years; it was officially launched on October 8, 1980 although running prototypes were a common sight on UK roads long before then. Indeed, on my desk I have a copy of Autocar from the launch week, in which a group of intrepid staffers had just returned from relaying a pre-production example 5000 miles around Europe… in just five days. Given that it was the 1-litre model, I reckon they earned their pay that month. It’s interesting to read the goodwill for the eagerly-anticipated new car, with the journalists being almost universally positive in their comments even…

the £7.2bn old car business

The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) used the recent virtual NEC Classic Motor Show as an opportunity to announce some of the standout results from its 2020 National Historic Vehicle Survey – and they make for very encouraging reading. Not only is the number of historic vehicles on the rise, but there’s also a big increase in the sector’s worth to the UK economy. The Federation has been compiling its reports every five years since 2006, but with the impact the pandemic is likely to have had on the sector’s habits in 2020 taken into consideration, the latest Historic Vehicle Survey was brought forward by a year and based on 2019 instead. In this context a historic vehicle is defined as being 30 years or over and spans a wide…

the end for the 3 wheeler

Production of the current Morgan 3 Wheeler is set to end next year after a 10-year run, as type approval for its V-twin engine expires. To mark its departure, the Malvern firm is building 33 special ‘P101 Edition’ cars – named in refence to the Project 101 internal code given to the revived 3 Wheeler when it was launched in 2011. Morgan’s beginnings are rooted in three-wheelers, right from the very first car designed by H.F.S. Morgan in 1908. The format soon took off and enjoyed considerable motorsport success, with development keeping quick pace through the 1910s and 1920s. The V-twin cars were replaced by four-cylinder F-Series three-wheelers in 1932, then the format was abandoned altogether in 1952. The P101 Edition makes a real show of the three-wheeler’s heritage, with its Deep…

brighton gets green light for 2021

A full programme of motoring events will take place on Brighton’s historic Madeira Drive despite a councillor describing rallies such as the London to Brighton Mini Run as “ridiculous”. Green councillor Sue Shanks was speaking during an online meeting for Brighton and Hove City Council’s Tourism, Equalities, Communities and Culture Committee on November 19, which debated the future of motoring events on Brighton’s seafront. The closure of Madeira Drive during the first national coronavirus lockdown and its subsequent reconfiguration as a one-way street, with half given over to a wider dedicated cycle lane, had led to concerns that such events would not survive. Councillor Shanks said that the Veteran Car Run, due to run for the 125th time in 2021, was a lovely event. However, she was less positive about other events.…

lucrative restoration projects revealed

The classic cars most financially viable to restore have been outlined in a new Hagerty UK report. Using its Price Guide, which covers over 200 models, the insurer investigated the difference between ‘fair’ (Condition 4) and ‘concours’ (Condition 1) values for each. With £13.12m difference, the Ferrari 250 GTO came out top, followed by the AC Cobra Daytona Coupe (£8.364m) and the McLaren F1 (£5.74m). By contrast, the newly added Ford Focus 1.6i Zetec showed a difference of just £1400, followed by the four-door Austin Allegro 1750 (£2150) and the Vauxhall Magnum 1800 (£2200). In terms of a percentage difference between ‘fair’ and ‘concours’, the Series 1 Land Rover Discovery was biggest, with a variance of £13,400 equating to 91 per cent of its ‘concours’ value. Close behind was the Lancia Beta…
