February Star Letter: Wot I learned in skool

16 January 2014

Dear Classic American,
I was interested to read your review of the latest incarnation of the Chrysler 300 (CA December issue) but was surprised to read that it is now ‘taughter’. Certainly it needed to be ‘tauter’, but maybe you meant ‘laughter’; I think the dilemma in defining the 300 is it is now passed its sell by date.

Star Letter: Pick-up ponderings

20 June 2013.

Dear Classic American,
I can shed more light on the 1940 Ford pick-up on Classic American’s June edition letters page. The truck is not what it seems as it’s not a real Ford pick-up.

Also the shut line for the hood is in completely the wrong place.
