EAMA, ONLINE, DECEMBER 5 One advantage of moving sales online is that potential buyers aren’t put off by the winter weather and so it proved for EAMA’s latest sale, with brisk bidding for the eclectic catalogue of bikes and cars. A particular highlight for most of us on CCM was a Cadillac rarity – a 2001 Seville with 4.6-litre V8 and right-hand drive which was hammered away for a provisional £1600. Meanwhile, Mini lover Jeff was more interested in the Mini Clubman which sold for £5500 and MGF-owning Aaron was impressed by the £3800 made by an early N-plated example. Everyone was intrigued by the tidy-looking Mercedes 420SL which was more affordable than usual thanks to Cat C status, selling for £11,000. Star performer of the day was an example of the first M-badged…

database rover 75 1998-2005

The Rover 75 is a car which divides opinion. Was it the ultimate expression of the Cool Britannia theme which dominated 1990s fashion by harking back to the 1960s? Was it an overhyped Mondeo alternative with a bit of fake grandeur? But whether you love or hate it, there’s no escaping the fact that it was Britain’s final mass-production saloon engineered by a British manufacturer. It also represented a move away from the Honda tie-up which had come to define Rover in the 1990s. Furthermore, it was a model which proved the mainstay of its maker until bankruptcy forced its closure. And then it continued in several forms in the far East, becoming the Rover 750 and MG 7 ranges, and subsequently underpinning the MG6. The only model truly conceived under BMW…

the five-second rule

BMW E46 M3 BMW’s M3 has suffered something of an identity crisis over the years, kicking off as a rough-and-ready road racer in its initial homologation-special appearance as the E30 and then morphing into more of a subtly muscled executive car when it acquired six-pot power in E36 guise. With the launch of the third generation based on the E46 3-Series in 2001, the M3 reverted to type and although it retained a six-cylinder engine it regained something of the frantic nature of the original. With the subtle executive express duties left to the bigger M5, the M3 gained the signature M Power quad exhausts, staggered 18-inch rims and a development of the 3.2-litre S54 engine as used in the ‘Evolution’ model of the E36. Producing 343bhp at a heady 7900rpm, the engine…

“next slide please”

Such are the traditions of the printing industry that the first issue of any regular publication you read in the new year will generally have been put together right at the tail end of the previous one and so it is here. So although I’m writing this at the height of the pre-Christmas rush I’ll spare you yet another column looking back on the year nobody wanted and instead try to look forward to better times in the coming months. At which point I should point out that I am in no way qualified in any useful medical or epidemiological capacity but one thing I do feel qualified to comment on is the spirit of those who enjoy tinkering with old cars. And just as society in general has adapted to cope…

making a splash

Celebrity excess is nothing new, and time has documented the trend well. From trashed hotel rooms to somewhat baser vices, the glitterati has an eye for a perceived good time and one which has often attracted the eyes of the paparazzi. Their cars are no different – it was rare to see a Hillman Minx disgorging a lead actor at Pinewood, or a low-spec Dodge in Hollywood – and Motown never went crazy for the delights of a Nash Metropolitan. But it’s not all Rolls-Royces in swimming pools, however tempting that idea might be – and however true or untrue the original rumour. And while the E-Type required considerably less cash, even it wasn’t the most attainable car of choice for those in the limelight. Some of society’s sweethearts drove classics…
