the big picture

Though he’s best remembered for the controversy that overtook his later life, in his early career John Zachary De Lorean was a car industry superstar. After spells at Chrysler and Packard, at Pontiac he sealed his fame by initiating both the GTO and Firebird, becoming GM’s youngest division head before moving on to lead Chevrolet. He left GM in 1973 to set up the De Lorean Motor Company and is pictured here in June the following year in a conference room at his factory in Detroit, Michigan, poring over blueprints for the first De Lorean Safety Vehicle, which would become the DMC-12 (p106).…

Funny how certain cars will forever be associated with certain people. My dad, for example, sold his Lotus Elite long before I was even born, yet so often does he lament its loss that whenever I see one I only think of him. The BMW 2002 holds a particularly special place in the hearts of longer-serving members of the C&SC team, having featured in the Our classics pages for two decades with our late and very much-missed chief sub editor, David Evans. Following the spectacular 1971 example during the photoshoot for this month’s cover was a poignant moment for me, reviving memories of so many journeys carried out in convoy with David and ‘LPB’, the twice-restored 2002 tii that was his pride and joy for so many years. This issue goes on…

2020’s best bits

ALASTAIR CLEMENTS CAR OF THE YEAR I was intrigued from the moment I saw Goodyear’s press images of the Golden Sahara II (Feb), but nothing prepared me for Olgun Kordal’s amazing photos and Greg MacLeman’s fascinating story on this uniquely illuminating custom. I just wish I’d got the chance to see it in the metal. BEST DRIVE The planets aligned for our Mazda centenary celebration: lockdown lifted enough for me to get on a plane, the sun came out in rural Germany, and the gorgeous R130 Luce (above) was repaired in time for me to get a day in a car I’ve always wanted to tick off my bucket list (Dec). BEST EVENT I suspect the term ‘normal’ will be recalibrated from now on, but the wonderful Concours of Elegance was as close…

best of 2020: photographers’ favourite pics

JAMES MANN Neither Greg MacLeman nor I had ever been to Palm Springs in the Californian desert, and the party town didn’t disappoint. Coming from the February gloom of Britain, the dazzling colours were achingly beautiful with the low angle of light picking out details in high contrast. The Lincoln Continental was exactly right to cruise the wide avenues and manicured boulevards, perfectly complementing the 1960s architecture. JOHN BRADSHAW The Cord 810 Beverly was the final shoot in our old studio before we moved out. The car was driven down from DD Classics’ unit in Brentford and the driver didn’t want to turn it off while we gave it a wash in case it wouldn’t fire up again. It then promptly stalled and, true to his word, wouldn’t restart. It was…
