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

https://www.ebay.co....uAAAOSwWOxbM7I5

 

£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.

Mucho respek', good sir... I envy you not one jot, but I'm deeply grateful for your travails here on the preservation front.

If you're still desiring a copy of Issue 1 as some sort of recompense, bang me your address and I'll get one in the post to you!

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.

Another haul of Jalopy mags has appeared on eBay, for any of you completionists out there:

 

Jalopy eBay bundle Feb 2019.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....93/372598570727

 

Issues in this bundle appear to be:

  • Issue 10 - March 1993 (Mini Profile)
  • Issue 11 - April 1993 (BLzebub: Rover SD1 Profile)
  • Issue 12 - May 1993 (Allegro 20th Anniversary)
  • Issue 13 - June 1993 (Ford Escort Profile)
  • Issue 14 - July 1993 (Super Sizzlin' Summer Soft Top Special - Triumph Herald)
  • Issue 15 - August 1993 (Old Ton-Ups) 
  • Issue 16 - October 1993 (Austin A30/A35 Profile)
  • Issue 17 - January 1994 (Minimal Motors: Trabant/Reliant Kitten)
  • Issue 18 - February 1994 (Grace, Pace & Rust - Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 Profile)
  • Issue 19 - March 1994 (The IMPossible Dream - Hillman Imp Profile)
  • Issue 21 - June 1994 (70s Citroens)
  • Issue 22 - July 1994 (Reliant - Your Plastic Friend? Robin Profile)
  • Issue 23 - August 1994 (Big Fords: Zephyr/Zodiac Profile)
  • Issue 28 - March/April 1995 (Ancient vs. Modern: Triumph Herald & Skoda Rapid shootout) 

Now, this is tricksy as I AM a completionist, and it DOES contain the two issues (Issue 12 and Issue 13) which I happen to require in order to finish off my run of Britain's smallest, dullest motoring mag from #1 to #31.

 

However, it also contains twelve issues which I have no particular need of, and in some cases already have one or two duplicate copies knocking around.

 

HNNNNNNGH.

 

Bids invited from £25. P&P is a mildly outrageous £6.95. So £32 all in (assuming no other bids).

 

Hypothetically speaking, if I were to bid on this, and hypothetically won, would anybody be hypothetically interested in taking the twelve duplicate copies off my hands for £15, posted? It really is only # 12 and #13 I need here. Hypothetically.

 

(Working out at £1.25 a copy delivered, this is less than the original cover price - even some 25 years on. OMG BARGAINZ.)

 

 

Also available are some cheerily confusing separate listings for another two copies of Jalopy, from the same seller:

  • Issue 8 - January 1993 (Old Frauds: Cortina Capers)

Jalopy #8 Cover - Jan 1993.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....on/372597470366

 

  • Either Issue 9 - February 1993 (VW Beetle Profile) [which is what the listing says] OR
  • Another copy of Issue 11 - April 1993 (BLzebub: Rover SD1 Profile) [which is what the listing photograph depicts]

Jalopy #11 Cover (April 1993).jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....93/372597474215

 

Both have a reassuringly low start, though do have a bid each on them (not me, promise).

 

Kinda makes you wonder why he didn't job-lot all of them together, though - unless he started listing them separately, did the first two, thought 'bollocks to this lark' and just fired the last fourteen up together...

Cor, ride me sideways - are dog-eared copies of Jalopoppy the new Bitcoin or summat?

 

ebay Jalopy bundle 19 Feb.png

 

HFM?? Seventy quid once postage is factored in? A fiver an issue? Bloody hell.

 

With seven hours left to go, I'm afraid I'm oot for this run.

 

 

Surprisingly, after a complete dearth of copies up for sale for some months, we now have the floodgates well and truly opened:

 

Issue 1: May 1992

 

Jalopy 1 ebay Feb 2019.jpg

Issue 4: August 1992

Issue 5: September/October 1992

https://www.ebay.co....92/333079196504

 

 

Issues 6, 7 & 8: November & December 1992, January 1993

 

Jalopy 6 & 7, Feb 2019.jpg

 

Jalopy 8, Feb 2019.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333080259609

 

 

Issues 9, 10 & 11: February, March & April 1993:

 

Jalopy 9 & 10 Feb 2019.jpg

 

Jalopy 11 Feb 2019.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333080972625

 

 

I'm now waiting breathlessly to see if copies of the fabled Issues 12 & 13 appear in this guy's listings next... ooh, I'm all of a-flutter. Bidding thus far seems brisk, mind.

 

(Looks like he got fed up listing them seperately, too.)

Blimey, looks like the same seller is indeed clearing out a near-complete run of Jalopy mags on eBay. Same lad as the above listings, but now all bundled into groups of three (or even four).

 

Here we have:

 

Issues 12 ,13 & 14 (May, June & July 1993)

 

Jalopy #12 & 13.jpg

 

Jalopy #14.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333082039449

 

I'll be putting in bid on these bad boys - 12 and 13 are the ones I need to finish off my own collection. Apologies to any other shiters bidding on this, but I will destroy you.

 

[EDIT: won them. Assuming they arrive, I'll finally have a complete Jalopy library - which my 13-year-old self would doubtless be very pleased about]

 

 

Issues 15, 16 & 17 (August & October 1993, January 1994)

 

Jalopy #15 & 16.jpg

 

Jalopy #17.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333083403133

 

(With such an erratic print schedule, you can see why it was kinda tricksy keeping track of this fine publication on the newsagent shelves...)

 

 

Issues 18, 19 & 20 (February, March & April 1994)

 

Jalopy # 18 & 19.jpg

 

Jalopy #20.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333083444807

 

 

 

Issues 21, 22 & 23 (June, July & August 1994)

 

Jalopy # 21 & 22.jpg

 

Jalopy #23.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333092400832

 

 

Issues 24, 25, 26 & 27 (September, October, November & December 1994)

 

Jalopy 24 & 25.jpg

 

Jalopy 26 & 27.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-4/333094470556

 

 

Apparently, that's all the copies of Jalopy that the seller has - so he's listed an almost-complete run of all the A5 issues from #1 through to #27, barring #2. The mag went A4 in 1995 for its final four issues, so either he doesn't have these or he just hasn't found them yet in with all the others.

 

Not sure whether anyone's that bothered other than myself, but I'm posting these pics up more for the covers/issues/dates to use as a handy-dandy reference than anything else.

 

Oh, and I'll have further duplicate copies to offer out here shortly, if anyone's interested.

Also available: the not-quite-successor to Jalopy (though involving some of the same publishing team and contributors), a complete run of Real Classics mag from 1997 - 1998

 

Starting bid of £4 for all ten issues (I have 1-7)

 

Real Classics 1 & 2.jpg

 

Real Classics 3 & 4.jpg

 

Real Classics 4 & 6.jpg

 

Real Classics 7 & 8.jpg

 

Real Classics 9 & 10.jpg

 

Over twenty years since publication, but still very much 'analogue AutoShite' - browsing those covers, it's interesting to see that it's still the same sort of thing that would make many of us on these pages come over all moist...

(Massive LOL at a Mk2 Cortina for sub-£600 - interesting to see how some things change, while others stay the same.)

That's a cracking write-up (apparently Cog Sr, in his floppyhaired Art College days, very much hankered after a Bond Bug instead of his '61 Beetle) - was this scanned from an edition of Car mag, perchance?

 

Never read it back in its heyday, but having caught a few Russell Bulgin and Phil Llewellin articles reprinted in Classic Motoring Review (RIP), I kinda feel I might have missed out a bit...

 

More of this sort of thing (as I appear to have inadvertently hijacked the thread with pointless Jalopy listings off eBay).

Not hi-jacked at all DC, anyone can post old road tests and magazine stuff on here anytime. Trigger used to be good at this sort of thing. I love reading old road tests and articles from the 70s and 80s. Unfortunately my stacks of old 70s and 80s mags were lost years ago.

Good old Jalopy magazine. I remember it well as I used to purchase it from the newsagents near Tonbridge station on my way to retaking my A-Levels (which I also made a second balls up of). There might just be a few issues kicking round my parents' house somewhere although in the back of my mind I think they went to the, cough, cough, recycling. I will check on my return back to Blighty soon. 

 

Rather enjoying the download issues.

Another copy of Jalopy Issue 2 listed on eBay yesterday:

 

Jalopy #2 Apr 2019.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....-2/333158509175

 

Being sold by the same fella who listed the almost-complete run back in February; so it looks like he HAD got a complete run of all the A5 issues from #1 - #27.

 

Missing its original 'I [Heart] My Jalopy' sticker - but, impressively, repro versions are sometimes available.

 

 

I really should take a pic of my finally-completed collection...
