speed isn't everything

Sometimes we get a bit carried away with 0-60mph times and top speeds and forget about the simpler driving pleasures. We’re all guilty of this, myself included, especially when it comes to convertibles. There’s a part of me that still twitches when I hear the ‘C’ word. My mind instantly thinks of lost structural rigidity and handling prowess, forgetting the simple life-affirming experience of driving sans roof on a sunny day. This month we’re going topless but staying classy with a trip to the coast in late 1980s drop-tops from Audi, Rover, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Saab and Maserati to find out which makes us look the coolest. This year marks some landmark anniversaries for Nissan’s fantastic 200SX so we felt it was the perfect time to look at the S13, S14 and S15…

behind the scenes at modern classics...

The world’s greatest journey Peterborough to Slough – if anyone says journalism is glamorous they haven’t spent four hours getting from one concrete filing cabinet for humans to another. Here’s just one obstacle. Just add chewing tobacco Check shirt present as correct as JJ swoons over this member of Jeep UK’s heritage fleet while picking up Nathan’s Alfa. We’ve noticed a lot of Willie Nelson suddenly appearing on JJ’s iPod. You spin me right round The Nissan Silvia was seemingly designed to break traction in stylish ways. Fitting Landsail tyres to the rears – like the owner of this S15 did – only encourages such entertaining goodness... Wind-ing back the years JJ welcomes back his Volkswagen Scirocco Storm after some extended R and R at VRT. Trip back from Slough involved much sweat and the all-conquering smell…

the team’s month

JOHN-JOE VOLLANS EDITOR Found himself borrowing Jon Burgess’ Peugeot 605 diesel. Fell in love with it, dented door and DERV powerplant notwithstanding. NATHAN CHADWICK ASSISTANT EDITOR 147 GTA still out of action due to a body computer that’s no longer available from Alfa Romeo. Hasn’t smiled in weeks. SIMON RUSSELL ART EDITOR Soon to be a father, he’s on the look out for another bike before the offspring swoops in and takes the disposable. Any suggestions? JETHRO BOVINGDON COLUMNIST Swooned over Workshop5001’s 72 911 with 318bhp, KW dampers and 1000kg. Worth trading his 996 in for we reckon. TIFF NEEDELL COLUMNIST Enjoyed the Blancpain GT series at Brands Hatch – a chance to get Tiff behind the wheel again, anyone? Do get in touch. LEWIS KINGSTON MARKETS EXPERT Found himself almost swayed by the ‘charms’ of a £7k Porsche Cayenne on eBay. Stick to the Subaru Forester,…

contributors this month

JAMES DEENE PRO DRIFTER Drifting may or may not be your thing but James is a champion – he explains why the Silvia platform makes for an excellent basis for sideways success. WILL BEAUMONT WRITER Will joins us after a stint writing for Evo magazine. His ability to make anything go sideways made him the perfect chap to work out which Silvia is best. ALEX TAPLEY PHOTOGRAPHER Two days, an exacting brief and coastal weather – Alex had a job on his hands, but delivered perfectly. Even the most committed Rover hater may be swayed... MARTIN DOMONEY WRITER Usually to be found writing for Land Rover Owner International, Martin finds himself behind the wheel of a rust-prone car for a change (ahem) – a VW Scirocco Storm.…

donington historic festival

The Donington Historic might not have the glamour of Goodwood or the Silverstone Classic, but it more than makes up for it with a fine selection of racing and off-track diversions – and this year was no different. The Historic Touring Car Challenge with the Tony Dron Trophy brought out 29 cars from the late 1970s right up to the late 1980s, which meant you got flame-throwing Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworths battling hard with BMW CSLs and even MG Metro Turbos. As was the case in the latter days of the Group A era (before the splendour of the Super 2000 years) the ex-Andy Rouse Ford Sierra RS500 driven by Julian Thomas and former British GT champion Calum Lockie took the victory, with a pair of BMW M3s following close on…

mx-5 spring rally

The MX-5 Owners' Club decided to mark both the sports car's 30th anniversary and its own 25th anniversary with an attempt to smash a 683-car record for a moving convoy of the Japanese roadsters – and with a whopping 1544 taking part, we reckon they should be feeling pretty confident. The manufacturer-backed record attempt, held at former RAF Elvington in North Yorkshire, involved MX-5s travelling four-abreast up the site's 1.92-mile runway and then back down the adjacent taxiway. All four generations of the sports car took part, including rarities like the BBR Turbo and 1991's Le Mans special editions. As MC wentto press the judges were still verifying the footage. Fingers crossed!…
