One for the hardcore - a copy of Jalopy #1 from May 1992.

£4 bid start, or £10 Buy It Now.

 

Looks in decent nick; and given that a torn and slightly ink-stained copy of Issue #1 set me back £15 at the start of the year, this appears not too batshit. Seller seems to actually know what he's selling, too.

Issue 23 is hot off the scanner for your reading pleasure!

 

 

Anxious to impress the family, I demonstrated the cigar lighter, producing much smoke from under the dashboard as the wiring heated up...

 

 

 

... my increased expertise in the field of car bodywork repair had lead to the development of a totally new substance to replace metal that had completely rusted away - a mixture of wire mesh, screwed-up bits of newspaper and a few tubs of filler.
