reminder

REMEMBER: THIS IS SUPPOSED to be fun. The cruise-ins, the track days, long race weekends, the aimless wandering—the building, breaking and fixing … a couple hours with a magazine here and there. These are things to be approached with joy and wonder and anticipation for what’s possible. For people like me, who do car stuff for work, it’s easy to occasionally lose sight of that. Luckily, the most reliable cure is doing more car stuff. Yes, even for people who are fortunate enough to make a living “in the business.” I just came back from a family trip to LA that included a look at friend of Autoweek Bruce Meyer’s incredible collection and (!) a guided tour of the awesome Petersen Museum. If the museum is still on your to-do list…

about the cover

A Porsche on the cover of Autoweek is not, in and of itself, something that’s going to blow too many minds. But we’d bet you’ve never seen 911s done quite like this before. This flock of 911/pool floaty hybrids is the work of artist Chris Labrooy. A commercial illustrator by trade, Labrooy—when he isn’t creating work for household-name corporate clients—enjoys experimenting with digital renderings of automotive scenes that could never exist in reality. They’re surreal, whimsical and fun, yet in their attention to detail and exploration of form, they reveal his lifetime love of the automobile. We recently spoke with the Scotland-based artist about his background, inspiration and reality-warping techniques. Check it all out starting on page 10.…

uphill, both ways

I’m a naturally ungifted mechanic, but there was a time when I could do about anything that could be done by the side of the road to get running again. Should I explain for the recently licensed? No matter how often you’ve heard “They don’t make ’em like they used to,” cars used to break down more than they do today. They vapor-locked, ate wheel bearings, the brakes faded. Pieces fell off. They overheated. Before about 1975, all of mine overheated. It may have had something to do with my choice of vehicles—anybody who bought an MG expected to spend time next to the road—but it wasn’t unique to sports cars. Many significant climbs in California, where I grew up, had pullouts where natural springs were directed into troughs so drivers could refill…

“THE UNICORN HAS LANDED,” START, J.P. VETTRAINO, AUG. 26 Great article, J.P. None of you are old enough to remember similar negative judgments upon the introduction of the ’63 Sting Ray, but it’s déjà vu for me. Incidentally, when Zora A-D introduced the ’63 to the SAE in a presentation at the Rackham building adjacent to the Wayne State University campus in Detroit, I remember him saying that not all members of the team agreed on the hidden headlights, but that “eventually I came around.” PHIL DEVERGILIO, HARRISON TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN “IT’S TIME TO MAKE THE CASE FOR THE CAR,” POSITIVE GROUND, GRAHAM KOZAK, AUG. 12 Graham Kozak’s essay expands on a simple truth: Cars are freedom. And make no mistake, there are people who want to take that away. And freedom lost is rarely…
