Hi guys,

I am a new guy to the forum so I would like to send my regards to all of you for a good start.

While searching the net for any Bagheera restoration info, I came across information that Practical Classics published a set of articles on Matra Bagheera restoration. In total, they inluded 12 parts in subsequent issues in 2005 and 2006. I emailed them to ask if it there were any chance to get hold of those historic issues. As there is a long break in the UK, it may take some time.

If I get any answer I will let you know.In the meanwhile, perhaps some of you have already got hold of those articles and are able to share them with us. At least please let me know if it is worth of the trouble.

I am based in Poland and I am going to restore my car, which I brought over from the UK. The car had been imported to the UK in the 90s from Italy, I have the original manual  - unfortunately in French (no use to me). Would anyone of you, have any technical manuals in English? I would appreciate your help.

Regards
Lukasz

I remember the articles and the car is still around.  The Matra Enthusiasts' Club in the UK will be able to help you with advice if you can't get hold of the articles.  Good Luck!

That would be great !! I just got the answer from the Publisher and they are out of stock. No chance to get the relevant issues now.

Here is my priv: eldodo@go2.pl

Many thanks

Hi Lukasz

I've had a subscription to Practical Classics for about 20 years, but unfortunately only developed an enthusiasm for the Bagheera after I'd thrown out several boxes of old copies.
As a consequence, I only have 3 episodes, number 3 (May 05), 5 (July 05) and 11 (Jan 06), which I've scanned.

I'm happy to send you these, so you could at least get a flavour of the series.
Please send me a personal message with your email address.

In my opinion, it was OK, but not great. Certainly not good enough to warrant buying back copies from ebay !
It would be nice to have scans of the whole set though....

Cheers
