Sports Car Classics,
Kindle™ eBook. Read on any device.
Eric Dymock selects contemporary features, road tests and motoring columns along with quotations from his books in this anthology from half a century’s writing about cars. It is material from the classic era of sports cars from a writer who drove the best from vintage to modern. Here are sports cars with straight-cut gears and sports cars with automatic transmissions – sports cars with one carburetor choke per cylinder, and sports cars with fuel injection and turbochargers.
Most of the entries in the Sportscar Classics series are histories and features of under a thousand words, easy self-contained reads reproduced as they were published between about 1960 and 2010. Since they were written for different publications, they vary. Road tests compiled for The Motor have an engineering bias; Sunday Times readers did not expect anything like that. They read as unvarnished personal views gained from test driving virtually every make of sports car of the second half of the 20th century, as well as a good many from the first.
