James Walshe visits CFM to talk classic cars

Former Kerrang! Radio PD James Walshe, now Deputy Editor of Practical Classics magazine, made an unexpected visit to CFM recently to discuss cars.

Members of the Peterborough based magazine team were on their annual Winter Challenge – in which they each buy a classic car for under £500 and drive it to the Lake District for a series of tasks.

Sheltering from gale force winds and flooding, they burst into the CFM breakfast show studios where presenter Robbie Dee was asked to settle an argument and judge his favourite of the five cars, including an Austin Maxi, Skoda Estelle, a Volvo and a couple of old Peugeot bangers.

‘Robbie is clearly insane’ said James Walshe. ‘He declared the Editor’s rusty Volvo as the best car, which isn’t a patch on my Maxi’.

Of the other cars, the team’s 1982 Peugeot 104 has already found a new home: ‘We’ve just flogged it to Mick Meadows, who is producer of the Magic Breakfast show in London.’ added Walshe. ‘I’d like to say it’s had one careful owner but I’d be lying’.

Practical Classics – Britain’s biggest selling classic car magazine – has been running its Winter Challenge since 1980. The magazine recently fixed CFM’s Cash For Kids charity banger when it broke down near the A1 en route to Barcelona.
