The 1971 Jack Brabham Trophy

The 1971 Jack Brabham Trophy

The 1970s were a very different era in motorsport to today: drivers were gentlemen, not athletes, sponsors merely financiers rather than the point of it all, and those involved had fun, getting up to all sorts of shenanigans alongside the flagship races.

1950 Jaguar XK120

by Coys

When shown at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show, the XK120 created a sensation.

After 240 alloy cars were built, production was shifted …

Three 1980s Trucks To Buy, Sell or Hold

Domestic vehicles from the 1980s are having a moment.

The result is people shelling out money in both …
