Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car is a new print-on-demand classic car publication aimed at a world-wide audience. It is inspired by the great UK motoring titles like Octane, Classic and Sports Car and Thoroughbred and Classic Car as well as US titles like Motor Trend Classic, Cars and Parts and Automobile Quarterly, all no longer published. Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car hopes to fill that void. Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car covers postwar cars from 1945 to 1990. While the magazine will cover priceless classics, it won’t ignore more mainstream cars. This is our preview issue and the cover feature is the 1979 Le Mans-winning Porsche 935 Kremer K3. Other features include three cars from the early sixties, Chrysler’s Ghia-bodied Turbine Car, a one-off, two-seat Studebaker Avanti and an elegant six-cylinder Fiat Abarth 2300S Ghia coupe. The final feature is classic American muscle, a 1969 Chevy Camaro Pace Car, but not the well-known Indy Pace Car, rather one of seven Camaros built for pace car duties at NASCAR speedways in the southeast. It is just one of the seven known to have survived. The contributing columnists to Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car talk about their own classic car experiences, each in their own engaging way. TV host Lance Lambert remembers his first close encounter with Studebaker’s Avanti as a 15-year-old who pedaled to his local dealership more than 50 years ago. In his car culture column, Contributing Editor Nick Guzan talks about the legendary Aston Martin DB5 made famous 50 years ago in Goldfinger. And the issue concludes with Joe Babizsz telling the story of the Swiss origins of Chevrolet, the most American of automotive brands. Unlike traditional print magazines, Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car, is interactive. Embedded in almost every feature is a QR code allowing you to call up videos and slide shows on your smartphone while you’re reading the magazine. Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car spans the print-digital divide bringing you the best of both worlds. Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car is produced for car enthusiasts, by car enthusiasts, giving you a unique reading experience that will fuel your automotive passions. Editorial Director Richard Truesdell invites everyone with comments and suggestions on the preview issue of Automotive Traveler’s Classic Car to contact him directly at richt@automotivetraveler.com.
