What Car? Road Test Yearbook Oct. 1992 - Hoxne Village Store, then

I'm slowly trying to build up a complete collection of What Car? magazines, and as I think everything in this is just a reprint of what had been published in the monthly magazine it wasn't really an essential purchase.

 

But, the main photo grabbed my attention - I realised it's taken outside a shop in a village not too far from my place. I drive past it regularly and knew the scene hadn't changed very much - see my 'now' photo.

 

I popped into the shop and the chap reckons there's a chance the mother and child might actually be people who live in the village. He took a copy and is keen to find out more.

 

Of the two family hatchbacks pictured, there's no trace on DVLA of the Mitsubishi Colt J10MMC (although Cartell do list it), whilst the Clio appears to have survived until 2002.
