We are still organising large numbers of the following which we will offer later:

If you are looking for a specific missing issue(s), contact us as we may be able to supply.
Good afternoon Brian. I came to this site via the AHA where I heard you speak about your work on cataloguing the magazines in the collection. I am hoping that you may have the following: Classic & Sportscar Sept 2006, June 2010 & Feb 2018. I have some Australian Motor Sports magazines (small format from 1951) to trade if you need them, otherwise happy to pay. All the best. Scott Garnett
I should have all three magazines that you are after. Although the museum is still closed to the public due to covid, some of the volunteers are starting to get access. I will check for you tomorrow Thursday.
With AMS, we have a complete set up to mid 1952 but are missing a few in late 1952 and 1953.
I will get back to you once I have checked.
