Restored Cars Magazine

Welcome to Eddie Ford Publications P/L & Restored Cars Australia Magazine


Due to the current unprecedented circumstances we all find ourselves in with relation to the coronavirus, we have been advised to leave this current magazine, Restored Cars #260, on the newsstands for three months instead of two months.  Hence this issue of our magazine is undated.

We want to advise all our wonderful readers that another magazine will follow in approximately three months time.  Once this horrific virus is under control and life begins to return to normal, we will go back to a bi-monthly Restored Cars Australia magazine timeframe.

Thank you for your understanding in these unprecedented times.  Stay safe, be strong and share your support and kindness with others, we really are all in this together.

We are grateful for your continued support,

Eddie, Jeanette and Anita xo

NB.  The 'next issue #261 goes on sale' dates on page 68 of RC #260 are incorrect..apologies for the confusion.
