Also on the move was the sole surviving 1939 Daimler DB18 Drophead – the car from which Winston Churchill addressed the crowds during election campaigns.

Mick Walsh From The Cockpit

Few people have clocked up more miles in early cars than Austin Bromley, but the Ford Model T, which celebrates its 110th birthday this year, seems to prompt such adventures. From veteran motorcycles to Camaro drag-racers, Bromley has eclectic tastes, but the Model T remains a favourite. For him, motoring with friends on North American back-roads is automotive heaven.

Simon Taylor Full Throttle

We drive classics not just to remind ourselves how cars used to be, but so we can ponder how everything used to be: bobbies on the beat, pea-soupers, driving in mackintosh, scarf and trilby because you hadn’t shelled out the extra £6 for the optional fug-stirrer, winding down the window to give hand signals.

REVINYLIZATION

Blood, Sweat & Tears began as Al Kooper’s dream of a rock band with horns. By the time he realized the concept—on the band’s 1968 debut, Child Is Father to the Man—it had become much more: an engaging hybrid of New York soul, Greenwich Village folk, and innovative jazz arrangements. With producer John Simon at the helm, Child was a virtual definition of the possibilities inherent in the heady musical experimentation of the late 1960s. Kooper’s writing and arranging for that record (including the monumental “I’ll Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know,” later a hit for Donny Hathaway) is one of the high points of his storied career. The record was justifiably praised as the conceptual breakthrough it was, and work had already begun on a follow-up when the band decided it needed a lead singer with more polish. Kooper left the group along with a couple of other key members.
