Editorial

If 2011 was the year of the E-type, what of 2012? The coming year brings with it important anniversaries for several cornerstone classics of the hobby, and this issue pays tribute to one of the most important of all, the MGB, Abingdon’s often-underrated everyman sports car. There’s another special birthday taking place this year, one that is a bit closer to home. The April edition of C&SC marks our 30th anniversary, and we have a host of celebrations planned at events, in the magazine and online, so watch this space for announcements. For every issue in 2012, we’re asking key figures in the magazine’s history to give their memories, starting this month as Simon Taylor tells the story of the title’s birth. Unfortunately, to put some of those plans in to action – and to offset a 33% leap in the cost of paper and printing C&SC over the past year – we have been forced to increase our cover price. We hope you’ll agree that the magazine is packed with great stories and still offers top value for money, but don’t forget that you can beat the rise by subscribing – and get it delivered straight to your front door. Turn to p32 for the latest offer.

Finally, I’m delighted to welcome James Page, who joins the C&SC team this month as deputy editor. James has a wealth of experience in the classic world, and is raising the tone of Our classics with a 1932 Morgan Super Sports – or will do if he ever finishes it... ALASTAIR CLEMENTS

We’re kicking off our 30th-anniversary celebrations this month with a very special

2012 Classic Calendar. Instead of showcasing our best photos from the past 12 months, we’ve been combing the archives to pick 14 of our favourites from the magazine’s 30-year history. We reckon it’s a pretty mouthwatering selection, but there must be some corkers that we’ve missed, or others that bring back particular memories for you. If so, log on to the website at www. classicandsportscar.com/forums and tell us your highlights – if we get enough suggestions, we’ll print the best later in the year. If for any reason your calendar was missing from this issue, please ask your newsagent or e-mail letters.c&sc @haymarket.com
