Classic Car Weekly is a British car newspaper published by the Bauer Media Group. Launched in 1990 by Emap, the newspaper comes out weekly on a Thursday, 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 Dave Richards.

It is a newsprint A3-sized publication, and primarily carries a mixture of private-seller advertising and editorial articles. Weekly circulation is around 24,500, and it enjoys a healthy readership in the UK and Ireland, with some sales in Europe.

From 2003 to the end of 2009 the title was published under licence by Kelsey Publishing, 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 took 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, edited by Peter Simpson who had previously been editor of Classic Car Weekly under Kelsey. (Is this the same Peter Simpson who edited Classic Plant & Machinery Magazine for Kelsey for a period. ?)
