March Star Letter: Amazing times!

March Star Letter: Amazing times!

19 February 2015

Dear Classic American,
Your feature in the January issue with time-lapse photography of the 1964 Thunderbird was not only very interesting, but also very impressive. All credit to Peter Taylor for his painstaking work on the car and to Steve Miles’s historical dedication to the cause and to his memory. And what a beautiful, unique car. Funnily enough, I was able to impress gathered family members while watching a film over Christmas by not only identfying a Ford Thunderbird, but being able to date it as a 1964 model by ‘THUNDERBIRD’ spelt out on the leading edge of the hood.

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: Taking the Riv'

15 August 2013.

Dear Classic American,
I always enjoy seeing and reading about my favourite car, that being the Buick Riviera. I am the director of the Riviera Owners Association here in the US. We are an international club with approximately 3000 members worldwide and are about to celebrate our 30th anniversary. I was sent a copy of your May 2013 issue by a member and I will pass information about the issue in our full colour club magazine.

Star Letter: Pick-up ponderings

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. It was originally a glass fibre movie prop with no running gear which is why the proportions are wrong: longer wheelbase and bed for a start. Also the shut line for the hood is in completely the wrong place.

Dear Classic American,
Whenever I’m reading Classic American I always wonder how many people are reading it in my situation; yet to step on the Yank owning ladder, but carefully planning it out in their mind to one day acquire their dream car.
