Your super Classic American is out now, and if you loved Burt Reynolds, you’ll absolutely love our feature on him!
As you may have recently read, dear old Burt died in September, but his memory (and his films) will stay with us as, thanks to the marvels of modern-day technology, we can always revisit those car chase films that made him one of Hollywood’s most recognisable stars.

But if you brave the chill and pick up your copy of the mag (or better still, start subscribing and get it delivered!) you can start planning for the 2019 season, as there are some excellent motors for sale in its pages.
