ISSUE 268: After beavering away with the Classic Car Buyer team putting together almost a couple of hundred issues of your favourite weekly classic newspaper, this will be the last issue I'll be directly involved with as I'm moving desks to the other side of the Kelsey editorial office in Peterborough to join editor in chief Paul Wager on our sister titles Classics Monthly and Classic Car Mart as these magazines’ managing editor. It's definitely all change here in the CCB office as talented features writer Jack Grover deservedly takes my place as deputy editor, while new boy James Howe joins the CCB team as its new editorial assistant to help give our hard working editor Chris Hope a bit of a breather. Welcome James, I'm sure you'll meet a host of new friends in your new position when you're out and about at shows and events with the CCB team – I have and continue to do so! Getting back to this issue, Ian Seabrook's Hot Topic looking at potholed roads really is topical as I recently had to replace a wheel rim on the daily driver after hitting a pothole that could’ve been an uncapped mineshaft. Not long after the impact, the nearside front tyre started to steadily lose pressure and further inspection a few days later revealed the inside of the rim to be badly dented and cracked and it had to be replaced with an expensive secondhand alloy.
