Boy oh boy do we have a mixed bag for you in this month’s magazine! I know I’m always going on about how Classic American content is really eclectic in terms of eras, makes, models and types of vehicles we cover, but this month I think we’ve surpassed ourselves in terms of the sheer variety! Taking pride of place is the stunning 1955 Dodge that was crowned Car of the Year at last year’s finals. Another brace of stunning Mopars are the ’65 Chrysler 300L which was also in the most recent Car of the Year and the 1970 Plymouth Road Runner which took part in the competition a couple of years ago… Bang up to date is the new Corvette C8, about which we managed to get a ‘first drive’…

pre-war perfection

1930 STUTZ SERIES M BOATTAIL SPEEDSTER The Stutz Motor Company was largely responsible for producing some of the most desirable American sports cars of the pre-war era. The car manufacturer campaigned its first production vehicle at the inaugural Indianapolis 500 in 1911, after only five weeks of design and build. This gamble paid off as the car finished in 11th place and thus created the advertising slogan, ‘Stutz – The Car That Made Good in a Day.’ This immediate success set the company up to design and produce more competitive models in the years that followed and paved the way for the iconic Bearcat model, a sports car that stayed in production until 1925. In 1929, Stutz introduced the Series M and referred to the model as the most European of the…

expedition earth

Imagine deciding you’re going to drive around the world on your second date?! Well, that’s exactly what one Kiwi couple, New Zealanders Bridget Thackwray and Topher Richwhite did on their second date and less than three months later they were setting off from Deadhorse in Alaska, the northernmost point in the western hemisphere accessible by road, in a Jeep Wrangler, nicknamed Gunther. So far they’ve covered 90,000 miles and been through 53 countries, including the US, Canada, Mexico, Belize, Colombia and Argentina, from which their Jeep was shipped to Africa where the odyssey continued up through South Africa, north through Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Egypt. There have been a lot of highs and lows on the journey, including the highest temperature experienced in Sudan (123 degrees Farenheit/51 degrees Celsius) and the…

aaci calls it a day

Sad news has reached the Classic American offices that the American Auto Club International has ceased operations due to issues with holding its annual shows. Chairman Brendan McCarth told Classic American: “Sadly, the AACI will be no more. It’s mainly due to Pure Leisure Group changing their event contracts going into 2020 and beyond. Without going into great detail, if we went with their proposals, we’d be effectively working to make money for them while we slowly watched the club go bankrupt. “As you know, we have always done it for two reasons and two alone. To keep it going, if I hadn’t done something it would have died back in 2008. But also to raise money for the charity When You Wish Upon a Star. It’s like putting something back,…
