Ford F1 Truck

A friend found this pick-up on a Georgia peach farm about 11 years ago. It had one owner from new, and ran a straight-six that the farmer had installed in the 1960s. The motor popped a core plug and smashed first gear, so I put in a Transit 2.5 diesel and five-speed transmission. A Jaguar front clip in place of the original beam axle gives me disc brakes and power steering, and the truck has been used every day since. I've driven it all over the UK and to the south of France. Myhot-rodded Ford...

Chequered lag

AUBREY FINBURGH and his team at Classic Autos restored this original 1954 Cooper Jaguar T33 in just eight weeks in time for it to run at the Goodwood Revival. The car returned to the Sussex circuit having taken part in the 1955 Goodwood Nine Hours. Finished the night before scrutineering, it ran faultlessly for Nick Wigley to qualify on the front row and then to finish in second place in the Freddie March Memorial Trophy.

An Event Worth Celebrating

What an experience. It's so damned good that there's a temptation to try and find fault with it but, actually, what is there to criticise It's the best historic racing event in the world. In the weeks since this year's Revival we've been putting together a few related features, from the obvious - Formula 1's Martin Brundle and Octane test driver Mark Hales storming the TT in Nick Mason's GTO - to the rather less obvious, in the shape of Doug Nye's compelling and...

Looks serene, sounds Like it's on an attack. Imagine the shriek of twin blowers and the crackle of the exhaust. Owner Chip Connor is at the wheel. It is genuinely a grand prix design, a straight-eight monster with twin superchargers, gear-driven double overhead camshafts and a pair of updraught Weber carburettors - the work of feted engineer Vittorio Jano, who had been persuaded to move from Fiat to Alfa Romeo by Enzo Ferrari, then a works driver with Alfa. Jano's first work for Alfa Romeo was...

Alfa Romeo 8c 2900b

Within years, horn grilles had replaced the driving lamps and sidelights had been grafted onto the front wings. There's a passage in the book The Immortal 2.9 that describes a drive in this very car back in the mid-1960s. A previous owner, Bill Summers, was on his way to hillclimb the now invaluable machine at Prescott, and running a little late I drove flat out down the A41 at Gailey - covering the remaining miles to the M50 in a little under 20 minutes, the...

Lap Colin Chapman invited me to join Team Lotus

I didn't want to stay behind - though I could have done so and still won - so I went for it but my foot slipped off the brake pedal. I got back onto it but locked-up on Oporto's tramlines, and instead of just going up the escape road, I tried to take the corner, and split the radiator on a kerb. From then on, John dedicated himself to four-wheeled racing. 'I really learned the ropes in Formula 1 through 1961-'62, driving Coopers and Lolas managed by Reg Parnell. But at the end of 1960...

Improving The Breed For 35 Years

In order to endure, let alone still enjoy, today's incompetence-ridden, urban-warfare motoring environment, discerning motorists demand something a little different Designed and engineered by and for thinking enthu w, SuperDefenders satisfies that demand. Choose from the outrageous 460 bhp supercharged AJV8 'Zulu' - the normally-aspirated 4.4 litre JE-35' with a mere 320 bhp - or the workhorse JE 'Saluki' TDV6 bi-turbo diesel with 240 bhp and 570 Nm.

Italy

IF YOU TAKE a look at every classic car auction, you'll see that half of the cars were probably made in Italy. This is the first clue to what cars - classic or modern - mean for the Italians. Few Italian collectors can afford to indulge in the top end of the classic car market, but their passion keeps demand for more affordable cars strong. The economic crisis of the last two years has not killed the market. Prices have steadied since 2008, and many new collectors, tired of losing money in...

Australian former racing driver

And wartime fighter pilot Tony Gaze was studying the front cover photograph of the recently released book Westhampnett at War. Taken at RAF Westhampnett on 21 January 1943, it shows Fit Lt J Pattison of No. 485 Squadron, RNZAF, demonstrating a combat move to Sqn Ldr Reg Grant. What had caught Tony's practised eye was the battered and dented cowling of the Spitfire fighter aircraft parked behind the two flyers, and its chipped and worn wing leading edges.
