The Magazine

Hide while you can!

When we saw this aggressive picture of this snout coming right at us, we immediately felt a strong emotion of fear. The photo was taken by Brewster Moseley, a professional photographer who lives near Chicago, but went out to a scrap yard in Butte, Montana to capture this 1949 Studebaker. More of his work from the yard can be seen here.

A breakdown mystery. (UPDATE II: Opel Kapitän ´51 plus sidecar by Hollandia Zijspan))

After WW II the Dutch Tourist organisation ANWB started a network to help stranded automobiles back on the road. Modelled after the British AA, they first used army surplus Harley Davidson motorbikes, which were later replaced by BSA. Up to you to tell us which car is suffering the breakdown.

Back to the future. Or forward to the past?

For foreigners like your editor driving through the UK always produces pleasant automotive surprises. We spotted this little car parked outside the pub. We didn’t have a clue as to what it was but fortunately the maker’s plate was on the front. We had never heard of this car before and to tell the truth, as Nissan introduced this retro-model in 1989, it’s also a bit out of scope for this magazine. Yet we liked its attractive lines. Some 20.000 were built, all right hand drive, and came complete with a cabriolet top, airco, and three speed automatic. Lots of them still seem to be around.

Bet your granny had one! ( UPDATE: Plymouth Valiant)

This year the annual Glenmoor Gathering in Cleveland,  Ohio will have for the first time a collector car auction. It will be conducted by Classic Motorcar Auctions of Canton, Ohio and headed by long-time collector car enthusiast Bob Lichty. There will be many fine cars, among them this very original looking 1962 Dodge Lancer. When was the last time you saw one like this? The Glenmoor Gathering will be held from September 17-19, with the Auction on Saturday 18th.

UPDATE: Dodge Lancer ??? So far I have only known and still try to forget a Mitsubishi Lancer.  We had almost exact the same car 'living' near the PW offices. The car was very scruffy already back then (this was 20 years ago...) but more important, it was a Plymouth Valiant.  Old School badge marketing. JB
