the 2019 btl reader survey

Welcome to the 2019 Between the Lines Reader Survey! At random intervals, the BTL Research Team asks readers to complete a questionnaire that will help us determine if it’s time for McNessor to consider a career in ridesharing or maybe pizza delivery. The identities of all participants will be kept confidential, so no one will know you’re actually reading this nonsense. When responding, please be as honest as you were that time you advertised your 1970 GTO Judge in HMN as “never raced or abused.” C’mon. Age I’m old enough to remember: In-dash CD players. In-dash 8-track players. In-dash record players. In-dash phonograph cylinder players. Gender The gender I currently identify with is: Male. Female. None of your business. Male except on Ladies Night at the speedway when my wife gets us two beers at half price by saying the other is…

british invasion

Along with the Kinks, Graham Parker, and Status Quo, the British invaded my garage as well as my record collection when I first stumbled upon a stolen Triumph Spitfire sitting wheel-less on a dark Brooklyn street. That was back in the summer of 1973, and I haven’t been the same since. During the ensuing years I’ve owned 17 British cars, with 12 of them being Triumphs, plus a Jaguar Series 1 E-type and Mark 2 sedan, a right-hand-drive Sunbeam 260 Tiger, MGA 1500 roadster, and a beautiful Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII. Oh, and my daily driver is a modern-day Mini that I bought new in 2013, which may not count due to its BMW parentage. Unlike the American cars I’ve owned, along with my Volvos, Alfa, Saab, Fiat, Lancia, Volkswagens, Mazda, and six…

Among the modern classics of the 1990s (May HMN), I noticed the glaring absence of the Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 Spyder, the first-production hardtop convertible sold in the U.S. since the 1959 Ford Skyliner. This beautiful car had four-wheel steering and driving, was faster, and more expensive than the Toyota Supra Twin-Turbo and rarer — only about 700 were produced in 1995 and 1996. RJ Broselow, MD Southland, Texas I am a longtime subscriber to Hemmings Motor News, and Hemmings Classic Car magazines. I look forward to reading them as soon as they arrive. I am a little puzzled by the Modern Classics article in the May issue of Hemmings Motor News. I realize that the cars that were selected to be included in the article were subjectivity selected by your writers. However, I was…

trailblazer, world traveler heidi hetzer dies at age 81

When we met Heidi Hetzer a couple years back, she was full of life and energy, so it was a shock to us when we learned she had died April 21 at age 81. Heidi, along with her 1930 Hudson Great Eight, “Hudo,” and son, Dylan, stopped at Hemmings Motor News in Bennington, Vermont, in September 2015. She lingered in the general area for the next month, attending the AACA Hershey meet as a guest of the Hudson-Essex-Terraplane Club. Heidi was born in 1938 to Berlin, Germany, Opel (and Victoria motorcycle) dealer, Siegfried Hetzer. By the age of 16, she was already working as a mechanic at the family business. She took over entirely in 1969 and ran it as one of the largest dealerships in Berlin until selling it in…

mid-engine corvette breaks cover

It’s been, quite possibly, the worst-kept secret in General Motors’ history. For the past two years or so, the internet has been flooded with spy photos of the camouflage-wrapped next-generation Chevrolet Corvette in testing, but on April 11, General Motors CEO Mary Barra finally announced the date the C8 would be revealed to the public: July 18, 2019. In the same statement, Barra revealed that the final production C7 Corvette will be sold by Barrett-Jackson on June 28 in Connecticut, with all proceeds going to charity. On April 25, Barra announced that the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant will add a second shift — and 400+ hourly workers — to produce the eighth-generation Corvette. Bowling Green has been home to Corvette manufacturing since 1981, and in the years since, has built…
