Editorial Issue 89

IIn this issue we have the Chairman's chat , club contacts, Diary dates for 2017, My car story from Grahame Ribbans, My Consul by Romano Viazzani , meet the fleet by Bryan Stone and the Wicksteed All Granadaís together 2016 report . All packed with great photos and the writes up are pretty good too. The usual for sale and wanted adverts are at the back of the mag and there is a really nice Mk2 for sale Ė see page 33 and 34.

Meet the Fleet is a new article we are introducing starting with our Chairmans collection of Mk2ís and we are hoping this will inspire those of you who have a fleet of Mk1ís or Mk2ís ( or both ) to put your fingers to the keyboard and follow his lead and let us all know about your fleet. So please get inspired and get those writes up in as we have a lot of readers waiting to know about your fleet.

Bryan Stone is still on the hunt for your car photos for the 2018 Calendar. Email is the preferred way but you can post them in. Please send them in to me or Bryan Stone or Martin Ecott.
