Just wondering. :p I personally don't and I've never seen one, but I expect they're worth a lot of money.

If not, what's the earliest Motor Sport magazine that you own? The earliest I have is January 1933, still with front/back cover, staples intact and centre pages are still attached.

I don't own one, but I've read it! Motor Sport reprinted parts of it for (IIRC) the 75th anniversary in 1999. I have that issue somewhere, but I've also consulted the original in the library at Beaulieu.

It's one superb magazine in production terms, with a stiff cover and printed on glossy non-acid paper. A work of art :up:

Oldest motoring mags I have are some copies of "The Motor" from 1931. Oldest Motor Sport September 1949.
