Magazine

Classic Car Buyer is Britain’s leading weekly newspaper for classic car enthusiasts. On-sale every Wednesday, it is packed with the biggest and most comprehensive news section plus auction reports and events - anything related to the classic car scene, you can read about here first. In addition, you’ll also find in-depth features covering all aspects of owning a classic car – buying, maintaining, driving and – crucially - enjoying. There are comprehensive buying guides, informative road tests, a nostalgic pull-out spread depicting a scene from the halcyon days of motoring, staff car sagas, guest columnists, market reviews, a detailed club directory and a regularly updated price guide. The publication is also packed with hundreds of cars and parts for sale in its Free Ads section, making it THE place to buy or sell your classic. There is a dedicated classifieds spread on classic commercial vehicles and machinery. Classic Car Buyer provides the best insight into bread and butter classics – every week! Edited by John-Joe Vollans, it is backed by a hugely knowledgeable team who have had years of experience running their own classics. That combined with an unending enthusiasm.

HISTORY

HYPER HATCHES • The subject of a Top Gear road test in period, the Ford Focus RS Mk1, VW Golf Mk4 R32 and Alfa Romeo 147 GTA represented the hot hatch turned up to 11, but does the four-pot Focus make the better classic choice, or one of its six-cylinder rivals?

VW GOLF Mk4 R32 (2002-2004)

ALFA ROMEO 147 GTA (2002-2005)

GOING PLATINUM • It’s hard to believe that some of these cars are now seventy years old, but 1954 offered plenty of variety. From family classics to something rather more sporting, there’s sure to be one that appeals to you

BOLD DECISION • During the '50s and '60s, the Audax-series Hillman Minx enjoyed a reputation as a solid, no-frills performer. Here’s how to buy a great example today
