Bitten by the bug. After reading about Affalterbach‘s fastest Mercedes-Benz as a child, this AMG super fan soon found himself behind the wheel of a C36 saloon - and two more stars have followed.

When the Mazda MX-5 returned to the road late last summer, a knocking sound was traced to the alternator’s rear bearing. Briefly running the engine without the belt attached seemed to confirm that because the noise disappeared. Genuine Mazda alternators are expensive and I was considering settling for a second-hand unit, but fortunately I noticed on one of my frequent visits to its website that MX-5 Parts was stocking a new aftermarket version at a far more palatable price. One of the many advantages of owning the popular Mazda is the parts back-up on offer, and the alternator arrived the day after I’d placed the order.

Porsche 911S 2.2 epic restoration. I wanted the look perfectly preserved, not restored. On the way to buy a Carrera RS replica, Neil Plumpton heard about a 911S 2.2 in need of love - he couldn’t resist. Words: Ben Field. Photography: Richard Pardon.

Epic restoration 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia SS. The roof had been walked on and half its rear wings were gone. Craig Jones hadn’t intended to buy an Alfa Romeo Giulia SS, but when he happened across this looking sad on a trailer, resistance was futile. Words MIKE RENAUT. Photography MATT RICHARDSON.

The Collector - I just don’t like small cars. Marcus Dean’s passion for XL-sized classics started with fine establishment names like Rolls-Royce and Bentley, but when his attention crossed the Atlantic, his collection blossomed. Words: NIGEL BOOTHMAN Photography: LAURENS PARS.

1959 Bentley Continental S1 epic restoration – the owner wanted a nine-month deadline. The car however had other ideas. I sought it might be possible – if we were lucky. It took one Bentley specialist six years just to buy this car - then he was asked to do a total restoration in only nine months. Words: Nigel Boothman Photography: Laurens Parsons.

When it comes to a tingle factor, many feel that no Mercedes-Benz does it quite like a classic SL. And to make sure we don't short change you, this issue serves up no less than six of them, from a 300SL Gullwing to a 500SL from the R129 era. My part in it was to do the 190SL W121, our cover story, and what a joy it was, especially one this pristine.

Work in progress - 1967 Austin A40 Farina. Family keeping. Father, mother and two daughters – the Hanley family are all pitching in to get this little Austin back on the road - words and photography by Eric Richardson. As the owner of any A40 Farina will tell you, once you get into a conversation about your car, there is about a 90 per cent chance you’ll hear one of two sentences. The first is usually: “I learned to drive in one of those”, a sentence delivered by those closer to their 60th birthday than they’d care to admit to. The second: “My dad had one of those”, is usually uttered by those enthusiasts who are somewhere in their forties.

Bugatti in detail. I have just read Mick Walsh’s article on the Bugatti EB110, and had not realised that the company had such a short life - only 1993-’95 in the UK!

Martin wonders if the tragic death of a Union Minister last month will finally cause people to buckle up? Some call it stupid. Others think it an idiosyncrasy. And yet others tell me "it's not needed." But every time I get in a vehicle (front or rear), I first reach for the seatbelt. It's almost instinctive. When I think about it (and my countrymen compel that to happen more often than I would like), it just seems like common sense. To me, it's the right thing to do - not morally, or by the law. Just something that may save my life one day.

If you find yourself living in the Manawatu, I strongly suggest you turn straight to the Federation of Motoring Club's page. If you have a couple of parts cars stashed away on your property, beware, as new Council by-laws will affect you, especially if you don’t get on with the neighbours!

Mansour Oijeh’s road-going Porsche 935 at auction. First ever Sonderwunsch Porsche sells at Bonhams’ Spa Classic sale. Bonhams, the UK-based auctioneer of fine automobiles, has sold a unique 930-based Porsche 935 at its recent Spa Classic sale. Among a host of similarly desirable classic exotica, the 930/935made the fourth highest price of the afternoon. However, with the hammer falling at a final price of €230.000 (£187.220) including buyer's premium the Sonderwunsch Porsche came in at significantly under the lower estimate of €300.000 (£244.000), which was surprising given its history.

Two-hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. That’s around the price you’d have had to pay if you were participating in the RM Auction at Monaco a few weeks ago and wanted to get your hands on a left-hand-drive, narrow-bodied 964 RS with only 11,390 kilometres on the clock.

The late Jim Morrison, front man for The Doors, liked to expose himself on stage, and kick back with a bevy of beauties and a head-warping cocktail of drugs after a performance. He might not be the ideal candidate for a role model, but Morrison penned a few lyrics which lucidly described the philosophies and morals by which we should live our lives. Now while some Doors’ songs focused on Morrison’s Oedipus complex (the desire to murder Daddy and marry Mummy), Morrison prescribed a simple formula for safe driving when he wrote Roadhouse Blues. In the opening lines of the song, Morrison barks ‘keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel’ with as much aggressive affirmation as Adolf Hitler delivering one of his Nuremburg Rally speeches.

This restored 1927 Morris Cowley, built at the end of 1927, has passed through a fair number of hands in recent years and was offered at Brightwells' auction at the end of November. Originally a saloon, it was found as a chassis in Kent in '89 and fitted with a new four-seat tourer body by Cookes of Nottingham, with an interior retrim in grey leather, a rebuilt engine, plus an overhauled Dynastart and magneto. A new hood and sidescreens were fitted in '92.

What’s it really cost. Like most of us, Tim Suddard is obsessed with cars, from his Sunbeam Tiger to his latest, a fin tail Benz sedan. It’s such a simple question: What’s it cost? In the world of classic cars, however, it's one we spend a lot of time either obsessing over or ignoring completely.

Another month, another collection of record breaking auction results. See the news pages for the full story, but the trend is definitely up, up, auction results. See the news pages for the full story, but the trend is definitely up, up, up. I don’t really like discussing the hard financial side of this Porsche obsession of ours, but it’s difficult to ignore when values are rising by the month, if not the week.

When I told a French friend that I was going back to England in the Renault, he assumed I meant that I would drive it to the local station, then catch a train. He was shocked when I told him that I was going to drive 600 miles up through France.

Following in the best coach-building tradition, Jaguar’s current XK is providing rich pickings for low- volume manufacturers. And the latest to jump on the bandwagon revives a famous name, as David Brown launches an eponymous firm with plans to build a luxury GT. The David Brown Speedback will be unveiled to the public in Monaco on 17 April. It is described by its maker as ‘completely original’ - despite the clear influence of the Aston Martin DB6 in its lines.
