Classic Cars magazine

Britain's longest-established classic car magazine defined the world of classic motoring 41 years ago, and it still does today.

To celebrate this important milestone we've added a raft of new series including: Quentin Willson on the cars to buy now, Epic Restorations, The Life Cycle of a Classic, The List where readers get to drive their dream car, The Collectors and My Life in Cars.

Each month Classic Cars will continue to bring you the most in-depth features on exciting cars from the past and the visionary people behind them; plus the latest and sharpest coverage of news, events, market trends and buying advice to help you get the most from your classic motoring.

Classic Cars magazine is called Thoroughbred & Classic Cars outside the UK.

I hope you enjoy the new look Classic Cars.
