Yep, absolutely fantastic issue. It's taken me two evenings just to flip through it, so by the time I've read it cover to cover i should have the May and June isue waiting...

But I can't believe no TVRs are in the 1980s performance cars article, yet the De Lorean is!

What a great issue.  I too flick through then memorise/read afterwards.  I would've kept this issue but usually pass them on to an old mate Bob Duck.  He deserves them after his recent triumph in the London to Capetown rally.

Hope to be reading for the next 30 years, possibly with the aid of stronger reading glasses!

Didn't realise Mungo Jerry drove a 13/60? By the looks of things, he's still sitting in it... Ah, that's why he's gone quiet over recent years.

Just what i did a couple of years running back in the day, and got to stay with a trainee nurse from Adenbrooks(her parents lived oposite mine)and her friends. Crammed into my Triumph , made leaves worthwhile, those were the days of being young and carefree. Spark up a rollup maan

Festivals? Nah not me. You're more likely to find The Jam, Dexy's, Squeeze, Detroit Spinners, Adele, Joss Stone, Motown... and all the reggae and soul stuff in my collection.

Psst! I used to be a mod (circa 1979-84) with all the mohair suits, Lonsdale sweatshirts; beads, open shirts, huge medallions and dandruff was never my scene.

"Saturday's boys live life with insults, drink lots of beer and wait for half-time results..."  Snippet lyric from the Jam track, "Saturday's kids" (Setting Sons album).

I remember them the first time around but fortunately the Norfolk town I lived in was strictly biker central-actually liked the Mod fashions , preferred motorbikes, but did have a go on a Lamberretta 220, with Wildcat conversion, scarey

ps did a moonlight security once at the Roxy- full of Hersham and Walton Bovver boot exponents boys, and a couple of bovverbirds stirring things up for us in the pit., Sham 69 and Pursey+ his own minder, enciting a near riot. Best one was at the Hammy Smyff Odeous, and some gate crashing WannaB Angels being ejected(18 stone on a good day helped) and some intelligencia amongst them on retreat, anouncincing after pointing a primate like apendage at the stage "do'es aint de Blockeads, dease is de blockeads, meaning us, oh well pots and kettles-and enjoy your ranting on the broadway.

I guess I did get to hear, if not get to see a whole load of bands I might not have bothered with otherwise. Also didnt Weller go underground.

This is a modern take on a Vespa Wasp, but I keep saying mine(vespas) in the fond hope a similar plane might rock up in the back yard!
