Got wood?

Got wood?

19 February 2015

Everybody loves wagons, don’t they? Even if you don’t think you do, I’ll bet there’s a wagon that floats your boat, as the American auto industry really did build wagons to suit every taste back in the day; from mild to wild! This month we’re treating you to an assortment of long roofs from every era and every manufacturer – and you know what? We still couldn’t cram all the cars in that we had lined up.

15 January 2015.

Happy New Year from the team at Classic American! We hope you’ve had a good Christmas break and while winter may not quite be over yet, there’s plenty to look forward to in 2015. Amazingly it’s just a few short months until the first car shows and events of the year and we’ve got a preview of a couple of ideas you might like to consider on our Club and Events section on page 96.

'57 Heaven for Chevy fans!

'57 Heaven for Chevy fans!

18 December 2014.

Sometimes in a particular issue of Classic American, themes will develop for no special reason. They’re not planned, they just happen almost by accident. This month’s magazine, for example, has three articles featuring 1957 Chevrolets and three stories that involve car owners that have hankered after a particular model for… well, almost a lifetime, before finally actually fulfilling the dream.

The GreaT One!

The GreaT One!

16 October 2014.

Welcome to our Pontiac/GTO special. Rather than fill a whole issue just with GTOs, we thought we’d roll it out to include other Pontiacs, among which are a very nice 1951 Chieftain Super Deluxe Catalina and a 1969 Grand Prix.

Here's to the ordinary

Here's to the ordinary

18 September 2014.

I make no apologies for this month’s star car, the gorgeous gold 1967 Plymouth Belvedere II on this month’s cover and featured on pages 28 to 32. Because I know some will be tutting and shaking their heads. “But why would they be doing that?” you might ask. Because it’s a 318 engined car… not any of the fabled big block monsters that Mother Mopar was so famed for during the Sixties.

What year's yours?

What year's yours?

22 August 2014.

Something I’ve always found fascinating with American car folk is the whole concept of what eras they like, or more often don’t like and their subsequent personal ‘cut-off’ dates. For myself, being a child of the Seventies and Eighties, I always felt that I wasn’t that interested in post-1985 cars. By that stage, most US manufacturers had downsized and started to switch to front-wheel drive and – God help us – four-cylinder engines.

Grab it while you can!

Grab it while you can!

18 July 2014.

If the weather with you has been anything like it has been here, then you will have been enjoying prime-time cruising. Hot, dry days mean an endless vista of fun with your Yank, whether it’s day trips out to the country, visits to car shows or cruises or just a pleasant afternoon with the polish and a chamois, or even an athletic jaunt down the dragstrip.

Are you using your Classic American to its full potential? It probably sounds like a strange question to ask, but sometimes people don’t realise all the great things we can do for them, or all the free services and opportunities available to them as readers or subscribers.
