Modern/German Classics

Wondered if anyone on here had been having a look at these mags? Modern Classics is on its third issue now and the German seems a 'toe-dipper' from first glance







I think Performance Car from a few years back did it all better but it'll be interesting to see if these survive

Modern Classics is a superb magazine, thoroughly enjoy it

You need to - Modern Classics current edition has a TVR 90's special in it!

Resisted issue 1 of Modern Classics but bought issue 2 and it's good.

Features cars exactly in my target sector (bottom of depreciation curve, fast).

Could be a regular purchase for me going forwards.

I must admit, i got the 'German Classics' one mostly to read about the Merc 190 Cosworth/Sapphire Cosworth comparison test - enjoyed the other stuff too

That Modern Classics looks rather good. Might give it a go.

So that's not a picture of long defunct tiltes from the 1990s?

It's quite clever the way they've re-created the look of titles of the period.

+1.

I also like the slightly retro look to it.

In bed with manflu today and fortuitously have a copy of Modern Classics (the above pictured one with GTIs on the cover) that I happened to pick up for the first time the other day. What a cracking magazine. Full of cars I actually want/am interested in. Even the classifieds are interesting!

I notice they've brought out Retro Japanese mag this week in the same vein as the mags above.

Next issue of Modern Classics has a special Cosworth article. Due out on April 13th - looking forward to it

Warn you now it contains large amount of Ford

Bought this morning, looks really good.

I also bought the Retro Japanese, but this is a different publisher.

Unfortunately Kelsey who published RJ specialise in repeating content so I've actually read most of it before in their other publications.

Yes, I've looked at RJ as well

Might pick up the odd copy depending on content

Redeemed themselves with the coupe test, then it all went off the scale with the A2.

Yep, free pair for every reader

Having read a bit last night , I'm ever more impressed with this magazine. Good balance of content with buying information.

Buying guide on the Boxster interesting, prices on these are really dropping to bargain basement levels now.

Though it's the Alfa GTV 3.0 I'm favouring right now.

Even a Piazza Turbo article as well

Yes, facelift Gen I Boxster S is where my eyes are mostly resting at present.

Wonder if the prices will hold up better now they've gone back to 4-pots for their entry level cars.

Personally, I'd say they got the Cosworth verdict wrong. I think the 2wd 4-door offers the most thrills/fun rather than the blunted in feel 4wd. Modern tyres ( even the limited range in 205 width and 15" diameter ), a set of Konis and the 4-door standard chassis means they're not as bad as journos say.

People rarely complain about the GT86 being a widowmaker now with the same power to weight. Main thing to remember is the traction control is your right foot
