Another Year Over

That went quickly But it's been a good year for classics, with new shows, strong sales and a number of significant restorations. All the signs are that 2011 will continue in the same vein, despite a slight slowdown in classic car sales during autumn this year. Anyway, we've marked the year-end with a few of our highlights, from highly important to utterly trivial, on pages 12 and 13. For Octane, the year has certainly ended on a high, with our celebration of the...

Cars - especially in their nirvana state of mint' and boxed' - are part of the automobilia firmament. It's more than just the models themselves that dwelt in my mind, though. The era they're from and the people behind them have come to fascinate me. Frank Hornby, the Meccano inventor, introduced Dinky Toys in 1934, scaling them at roughly 1 43 so they'd flatter his O-gauge Hornby trains. Instead of machine-bent tinplate, they were made of mazak. a zinc-based alloy, so they could be die-cast, a...

A few months ago I had no intention (nor the means) to own another car, let alone an Italian one five years older than me. But I hadn't bargained on the perfect storm of a so-called friend relentlessly egging me on to buy a 105-series Alfa, the excellent and horribly tempting website www.classicalfa.com, and an all-too-easily secured loan. I didn't stand a chance. To be honest, I didn't fight the urges too hard. Indeed, I'd been harbouring the Alfa virus since my aformentioned friend, Simon...

RM said this was the finest example it had ever offered for sale, which no-one disputes it was as close to perfect as could be reasonably expected, and sold at the high end of its 250,000-350,000 estimate, coming in at 341,000 when fees were added.

I SPECULATED in Issue 89 that the reason for my Model A being down on power and consuming more water than petrol might be a blown head gasket. Amazingly, I was right.

He also reminded me that the distributor was worn, the carb needed a rebuild, and there was a crack in one of the fan blades In for a penny, in for rather a lot of pounds, but it was all worth it because, when the A...

ON 21 DECEMBER 2009, when Britain was hit by the kind of heavy snow it hadn't seen in decades, most of the electric trains in Kent stopped running. One train that had no trouble with the snow that day was the Cathedrals Express, hauled by a steam locomotive designed in the 1940s - but built in the earlyyears of the 21st century. Tornado is an exact replica of the 49 A1 Pacifics built by the old LNER shortly before nationalisation in 1948. All were scrapped in the 1960s, so a group of...

THE PREMISE of these Iconografix softbacks is simple lots of pictures - in this case, one per page - with short captions. Karl Ludvigsen has trawled his personal archive to provide over 120 photos, mostly B& W but some in colour, of the Group C and IMSA Porsches, beginning with design models and cars in-build, moving through the 956's debut at Silverstone in 1982, and ending with Porsche's 1994 version of Jochen Dauer's962LM road car. Picture reproduction is good.

WE PREVIEWED some of the images from this book in issue 90 but they were just a tiny sample of the hundreds that Paul Parker has collated here mostly in black-and-white but including some superb colour too. Generally, pictures are used at half-page size or larger, so you can drink in the period detail - we loved the 1959 shot, left, of a Cooper T49 at Goodwood, with handlebar-moustachioed Ken Stratton doing his best Terry-Thomas impression, and an ex-WD gun tractor behind the picket fence....

GET PAST the uninspiring cover and you'll find a remarkably varied history by MG marque expert Knowles, with fascinating pictures of the concepts and test mules that resulted in the MGF, and, at the other end of the time frame, the future projects that never saw the light of day. due to the collapse of MG Rover. The story of the production cars is fully detailed, of course, and brought right up to date with the latest Chinese-built models, but it's all the might have beens' that really grab...

CHRISTMAS came early for a German collector who bagged a 1970 MercedesBenz 600 once owned by Elvis Presley. It was one of the stars at Bonhams' first end-of-year sale at Mercedes-Benz World, and sold for 80,700 before dealers and collectors realised what they'd missed. With its estimate of 150,000-200,000, potential bidders ruled themselves out, judging it too expensive others may have been waiting for the car to approach that estimate. Recent transactions of 77,000 (2009) and 54,000 (2010)...

The adage goes that it is sometimes more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car fast. You know, cars that seem to go fast while in fact going slowly. With that in mind I had a look through my garage to see which of my cars best fit the bill. There was my 1937 Fiat Topolino. It has 13.5 horsepower and a top speed of 52mph. The speedometer reads in kilometres, so 50mph is 80km h, but the sensation behind the wheel is more like 80 miles per hour Believe me, bobbing up and down at 50mph in a...

It's almost spooky when you see the thing surrounded for the very first time by all its illustrious predecessors.

Mimsy Farmer

Proving beyond doubt that only Elvis could make such a potentially noxious concoction palatable. The producers followed this with more of the same good of boy NASCAR nonsense in Thunder Alley 19671, which starred another singing heartthrob, Fabian Forte, who had also appeared in Fireball 500. Both films featured the work of West Coast customiser George Barris, who for Fireball 500created a replica of Richard Petty's Number43 Plymouth (supposedly raced by Owens and a barely recognisable Plymouth...

Not today, but it did and it's sort of a military theme. If you asked a NASA scientist in the 1960s to get a rocket to the moon, he wouldn't ask if there were any restrictions on size or fuel consumption. Or budget for that matter. All that mattered would be getting there. CanAm was a bit like that, the race series created in the mid-1960s to embrace the American dream that anything was possible and, preferably, the bigger the better. The only stipulation was that the car had to have two seats...

Packard Caribbean

It seems that prices for Caribbean convertibles are continuing on a downward spiral. This car brought just 77,000 against a not unreasonable low estimate of 125,000. It's tough to make the call whether these cars have fallen out of favour, or if the rising prices of the past few years have brought more to market than can be absorbed. Still, it's just the thing if you are looking to swan about as a foppish '50s dandy, as this car represents the polar opposite of late-'40s austerity. In Polaris...

It's time to get beyond the Smokey and the Bandit connection and recognise this American muscle car as something more than a toupee'd star of yesterday.
