Practical Classics April '87

#1 Post by cachophrastus » Thu Jun 07, 2018 5:31 pm

Hi All,

Does anyone have a pile of really (I mean REALLY) old Practical Classics?

There was an article about myself (I do rustproofing) in the April "87 edition and I need to get hold of it to substantiate my claim that I have been doing this "since Noah were a lad".

Cheers Chris

I have a bunch from the early 90's to the late 90's (practical classics, popular classics and your classics). THey're still in my old bedroom at my parents house in London. My father is always on my case to get rid of them but push back. Someday, I'm going to ship a car (classic mini or old Land Rover) to the US and will put them in there.

The O/P was last on the boards 7 minutes after they requested the copy of the magazine that they were after, maybe a PM would help? I sent one then, but had no reply when I asked them to consider that I need to rehome every edition up to the start of 2014, so if you were able to supply just the one, you may get a response to a PM.. Apart from the fact that

I checked too, my offer of the first thirty odd years worth still holds if nobody else can find the edition that carries the piece to which the o/p referred. :)
