    The legacy of classic cars

    Although most of my writing these days is about new cars, I still have a passion for the classics. To me, there is nothing like stepping behind the wheel of a Packard Light Eight or Duesenberg Model J. The ingenuity and elegance of those cars makes my imagination soar, wondering what it must have been like to live in the time they were created.

    Recently, I’ve drawn on my love of the classics to create some collections that celebrate special models such as the Willys-Overland Jeeps and FJ40 Land Cruisers. In addition, a collection celebrating Route 66, also called the Mother Road, brings together a variety of popular post-War models that drivers crossing the US in the 1950s and 60s might have seen along the way.

    To quote Bob Troup’s famous song: “Travel my way, take the highway that’s the best.” Drive a classic, and become part of its legacy.
