Classic and Sports Car magazine
« on: July 15, 2019, 22:25:23 »
I just received my first issue of Classic and Sports Cars after a decade of letting my subscription expire. I had forgotten what a great and interesting magazine it really is. Choke full of interesting articles and advertisements and cars for sale, it's over 100 pages long. I have to say you Brits are really car crazy in the best manner. I am glad I re-subscribed.  I also saw that classic and young timer MBs demand  premium prices over US prices for the same model. Although Astons and Bentleys and Morgans get top billing the mag covers car models from worldwide in a witty and informative way.
Too bad their steering wheels are on the wrong side !
A worthwhile and entertaining investment for the enthusiast.

The steering wheels may be on the right side,  but they are not correct.

I've been a subscriber for a couple of decades. A letter to the editor was published as "Letter of the Month" once.  It's been a consistently good read over the years and I devour C&SC from cover to cover as soon as it arrives (I'll be starting on the newest issue that arrived in yesterday's mail tonight.  Can't wait to discover the rationale behind an article comparing a 190SL to a Corvette!).

The C1 Corvette/190SL comparison article in the August issue of C&SC was an interesting take on two very different manufacturer's '50s approaches to a sporting boulevardier.  However this little tidbit in the Letters section on page 65 was a hoot:
