    Changes in the classic car landscape

    I cannot help but notice that things have changed very quickly over the last few years. Historically, classic car values rose almost every 6 months, while dealers were willing to purchase inventory and hold it for a year or more...

    Great Escapes

    Whether it’s owning them, encountering them, or just reading about them, powerful historic cars have an ability to transport you to a bygone age. They can also be a welcome form of escapism in these dark and difficult times. When I say powerful, I don’t only mean horsepower, I also mean power of character.

    The front line Cadillacs of WW II

    I always admired heavy American pre-war machinery. Thinking of the liberation of France (and later Germany), it was not only Willys Jeeps, Dodge WC-52 weapon carriers or M4 Sherman tanks that came over from the US into Northern Europe, mostly through Omaha beach and Cherbourg.

    Blower in the Rain

    Michael Kliebenstein recalls his favourite drive in a 1931 4½-litre ‘Blower’ Bentley.

    The cockpits of 1920s and 1930s race cars have a very simple authenticity generally not found in cars of later eras.

Yet today they’re often rightly considered examples of automotive art. None more so than the cockpit of the 1930 Bentley 4½-litre ‘Blower’, the most famous race car of the Bentley Boys-era.

    Maserati-engined Espace

    For a brand so synonymous with sometimes quirky, often brilliant innovation, at least prior to its merging with Peugeot in the mid-70s anyway, it is quite unusual to come across an innovative and beguiling Citroën concept car seemingly too niche for even this bravest of car manufacturers to produce.

    Following the Mille Miglia

    A thousand miles in the tyre tracks of the greats

    In its original guise, the Mille Miglia involved the bravest of drivers racing a thousand miles from Brescia to Rome and back, on public roads, sometimes in almost total darkness. It was thrilling, but fraught with danger.

    Classic Nostalgia 2022

    Classic Nostalgia, held this past weekend at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb, was yet another great reminder of why the glory days of motorsport are so worth celebrating. Listening to the melodic shriek of the V16 in BRM’s 2021 P15 as it carried out its demonstration runs up the hill was spine-tingling – you don’t get that with electric.
