My car in a magazine 16 years 11 months ago #730

Two years back my car was in a couple of magazines.

There was the buyers' guide in Retro Cars in (I think) August 2003. A couple of months earlier it was in another magazine (Classic Cars?) in a group test with a Mk1 MR2, MX5, Lotus Elan, MG-B and MG-F.

Does anyone have a copy of the magazine which they could scan for me, or does anyone know of a way of getting a copy.

The magazine promised me a couple of copies and scans of all the pictures after the shoot, and then completely ignored me! I did buy a copy, but then cut it up and stuck it on display boards for the NEC, which I've since lost.

Anyone help?

Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but have you tried contacting the magazines in question directly - most of them sell back-issues! or they may even have an archive copy that they'd scan for you....

edit: You could always try the biggest on-line emporium going..... a cursory seach has uncovered potentially the magazine you are after although the month is wrong:

Or if you're feeling really flush, guaranteed to have your issue! ;)

Thanks Tiff, that's great. So it was 'Classics', Nov 2003.

I have the Retro Cars magazine (it came out while we were at the NEC and they gave me half a dozen copies).

Yes, I'll be at Callander.

I'll have a look on the bay for Classics. If anyone sees a copy, please let me know.
