Comments about the latest C&SC
And the race goes on...
Since today, CSC April issue is available at LIsbon finest "boulevards"...
What a nice surprise, May issue is available in Luxembourg since yesterday (Friday), just one day after than in GB. Well done this time!
There are plenty of interesting features. As I don't hide my admiration for the German ace, I like the Rosemeyer story.
Although its serial number is missing, the "dug up" Dino story is entertaining too.
Live images are on the Net (bellow)
BUY YOUR DREM CLASSIC by CSC
Since last Saturday available at the best Lisbon Moto & Classic Shows.
The lst weeks have been very busy, so can only make the Lisbon MotorClássico show report ina few days.
Since early morning today, CSCs may issue is available at Lisbon's fiinest driving schools...
And, I'm pleased to say that the latest issue (May) is now residing in our lounge near Le Mans!
A great improvement on delivery time, as it actually got here on Wednesday!
I suspect thanks are due to James Elliott!
Mine came too earlier this week. I am only up to the cheap Sports Car feature so far, but it brought home a few things to me.
While the mag' has always been Classic AND Sports Car (previously Sportscar) I am not so bothered about the 'Sport' part.
I can appreciate the fun of a lightweight open two-seater on a sunny B road, but whenever sports cars are mentioned it seems all out performance is the main goal, and I am of the opinion that most of the performance available from today's breed is not useable on today's roads.
If I had the sort of disposable dosh to indulge in the type of car that Mr Clarkson likes to burn rubber in, I would have a long list of more socially acceptable and comfortably driveable classics that would make enough of a stylish statement while leaving enough change to indulge in a season or two of historic Formula Ford club racing to get my adrenalin fix in relative safety. Plus, I would not have everyone in the High Street thinking w*nk*r whenever I drive past.
The other point is I realised I have a cut-off date around the late seventies, after which I have no interest. I guess it is because I prefer cars to made of nuts and bolts rather than plastic and chips. These cars may be cheap to buy, but any future servicing required where there are complex injection systems or computers needing attention may well see them off the road for good.
I thought I may as well do a 'Nuno' and took a snap of the mag' at Sublime Point, 415 metres above the North Wollongong coast. Chris M.
Since today, CSC June issue is available at Lisbon's best surf spots...
Since a certain influential individual took action my mag' has been getting here in good time too (thanks mate), and I went over to the beach to try to outdo Nuno, but there was no surf yesterday. Rare, but it does happen, then this morning the surf was back and there were even a pod of dolphins playing, but I had left the magazine at home.
Maybe next month, so anyway, a lazy weekend out on the deck and hoping to catch up on some reading, but first to educate Django about what is a Miura.
