It is with great regret that I learned last week of the death of Bob Draper. Bob was a true American car enthusiast through and through and over the years had owned many wonderful cars. What always struck me about Bob, however, was not just his enthusiasm and his wealth of experience with his cars, but his genuine modesty, despite his almost encyclopaedic knowledge.

2013 marks a very special year for Classic American, as it’s our 25th year in publication. One of the most common phrases I hear when speaking to readers is: “I’ve got every single magazine since issue one!” It’s a sentiment that’s pleasing to hear, as it suggests we must be doing something right to continue enjoying that level of support and enthusiasm from readers.

A number of years ago, back in the days of VHS, there was a young man who used to turn up at American car shows (mostly Billing Aquadrome) here in the UK flogging old American car adverts on VHS tapes. He’d sourced hundreds of these ads and painstakingly put them on tape and designed artwork for the boxes and they sold like hot cakes.

This month we’ve gone tyre crazy! Although some of us may only use our cars during the summer (so not at all this year!) and consequently not put many miles on our cars, tyres are a vitally important part of operating your vehicle safely. We’re always looking at ways of helping readers keep their cars on the road and safe, so this and next month we’re giving away a set of four tyres worth up to £600.
