the big picture

American car styling studios were highly creative design hubs producing a wealth of drawings, most now long lost. Collector Patrick Kelly became fascinated by these stylists’ work and started saving as much as he could find. His new book, Imagine!, pays homage to these unsung talents (p40). Here the beautiful second-generation Corvair convertible takes shape as a full-size clay model in the Chevrolet studio under Bill Mitchell in March ’63. Irv Rybicki chats to Henry Haga (standing, l-r), while Ned Walters and Phil Garcia are among the artists at work on the boards.…

After 200 issues, our long-serving and often long-suffering art editor Martin Port has moved on to pastures new. It’s a moment that I couldn’t allow to pass by without paying tribute to a much-loved member of the team, both among colleagues and readers. From the moment he fixed a blown head gasket on his MGB GT in his first week we knew he was going to fit in, and throughout his 16 years with the magazine he has shown an unquenchable passion for old cars, so I’m delighted that Martin is going to carry on as a regular contributor to Our classics. But as one door closes another opens, and I am thrilled to welcome the hugely talented Damon Cogman to the C&SC team. Not only does our new art maestro…

clubs deck the halls

More than 71,000 visitors flocked to Birmingham’s NEC from 8-10 November to help the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show celebrate its 35th birthday in style, complete with probably the biggest-ever game of Top Trumps and the usual dazzling array of cars. Some 300-plus car clubs turned out for the traditional season-closing indoor spectacular, with most taking part in the show theme by creating giant versions of the famous card game. But only one of them, the MG Car Club, had its very own set printed, with every car on the stand featuring in the pack. That was enough to convince C&SC’s team of judges to award it Best Themed Club Stand at the annual Classic & Sports Car Club Awards, held once again with the support of the show’s headline sponsor…

1973 PORSCHE 917/30 What makes this Porsche 917/30 even better is that it was on loan from an actual Porsche Club of Great Britain member. The spare for Mark Donohue’s incredible Can-Am year, it’s a multimillion-pound car with four-figure bhp and dressed in that synonymous Sunoco Blue. The 917 had been so dominant in Europe that it had to be outlawed, so Porsche looked Stateside, turned up the wick, strengthened and widened nearly everything and simply blew everyone out of the water there, too. And the manufacturers and fans switched off. Not far away in PCGB’s expansive corner of the NEC was a 910 sports-racer, which was so dwarfed it looked as if it was miles apart – in every way. JP 1974 BITTER CD I’m a sucker for both rare cars and…

stylish debut for rac awards

November proved a busy month for the Royal Automobile Club, beginning with its usual packed schedule of events for the annual London Motor Week (28 October-3 November) and culminating on 21 November with its inaugural Historic Awards ceremony, held at a gala evening in the elegant Pall Mall clubhouse. A special display in the Rotunda featured Sir Stirling Moss’ own Osca, which is maintained by the Club in its Woodcote Motor House, and Paddy Hopkirk’s Mini Cooper ‘S’ still wearing the mud-spatters from its victory on the RAC Rally of the Tests. Hosted by Channel 4 Formula One presenter Lee McKenzie, the Awards were created to build on the Club’s long history of supporting the UK’s automotive achievements by celebrating the people involved in the British historic motoring and motorsport scene, and…
