Classic Car Weekly is a British car newspaper published by the Bauer Media Group.

History and profile[edit]

Launched in 1990 by Emap,[1] Classic Car Weekly comes out weekly on a Wednesday, and majors on news and auction coverage, as well as running regular articles on buying, selling, maintaining and driving classic cars. The current editor is David Simister.

It is a newsprint A3-sized publication, and primarily carries a mixture of private-seller advertising and editorial articles. From 2002 to the end of 2009 the title was published under licence by Kelsey Publishing,[1] under whom its fortunes were turned around, circulation more than doubled and the title become the best-selling classic car publication in the UK. Bauer Media (who had bought EMAP's consumer magazines in the meantime) saw the success and rook it back from Kelsey at the end of 2009. Classic Car Weekly now sits alongside Practical Classics and Classic Cars. Kelsey responded by launching their own weekly competitor, Classic Car Buyer, originally edited by Peter Simpson who had previously been editor of Classic Car Weekly under Kelsey.
