Classic Cars July 2024 issue

Inside the July issue we tackle the controversial subject of classic car modification. Can our six exemplars of different schools of upgrading, from backdated Porsche 911 to electric DeLorean, make the case? We asked designer Peter Stevens to chip in. Some cars need no modification, like the wild-winged Plymouth Superbird and devastatingly effective Audi RS2 and BMW M5 that we put to the test. But not all together.

Most modifiers would draw the line at using household materials to restore a once beautiful Maserati 3500GTI, but not the cowboys who did previous work on this example. The story of how somewhat more expert craftsmen righted all of those wrongs is a great read. As is the life story of a humble Skoda Rapid that took on the British Touring Car Championship and proved its doubters wrong.

All that, plus our ever-entertaining columnists Quentin Willson and Alex Riley, market news and event highlights, the monthly highs and lows of our own classics, a Mercedes CLS buying guide, four cars for sale tested and more, make the July issue unmissable.
