I'm always amazed how the English are not allowed to be ENGLISH anymore!
We are even told how to use our own language.
We are quite aware of the Pilgrim Fathers wanting to simplify our complicated words.
Of all the things that were altered, I'm sure GREY wasn't mentioned LOL.... smilielol smilielol smilielol

You Guys and Gals stole the 'G' from Platignum and the 'I' from Aluminium too.
What next.....
Stel, Ion, Coper, Tunsten, Bras, Nikel.....

Oh yes and whilst we are at it a TYRE is TYRE not..... I tire of this FRED LOL!!! 2thumbs

I know a guy named Bob Grey.

I'll have to gently point out he spells his name wrong...    Cheesy

New article out.   Photography is beautiful.   Mistakes in the story and lack of fact check about the car are inexcusable for VM.

They did.  With links here, I understand...    2thumbs

And, I am told there is a Shelby in there that is claimed to have raced, but was a show car!

Simple check of the vin on the Shelby registry pointed that out.  I bet the Shelby guys are writing emails!!!!!!!!

Thats the beauty of the Shelby registry.  Ferrari guys have a similar gig.

Send emails to: Brian Williams, the new editor of Vintage Motorsports Magazine!   smilielol

Seriously, I was sent the real email address for the editor - d.randyriggs@comcast.net   

Perhaps, if they get a few notes, they will look into it...

Did not know that Randy was not longer at the helm. That might explain the sudden slackness of the editorial content. More's the pity.

Up date: Just went to the website and Randy's name is still atop the masthead:

Yes, I know Randy. He's generally a straight shooter interested in keeping history straight. So I am a little surprised by the article. I have sent Randy a couple of e mails on the subject...no response.

Of course, not much he can do now that the article has seen print. Canepa is one of the major players in the vintage world on the Left Coast. And he apparently has a lot of $$$$.  At least he acts like he does around the folks he considers to be unimportant to him. So I am sure he holds some sway out there in vintage circles.  That's a rich guys playground for better or worse. He also owns the replica Petty 1969 Torino that was cobbled up on the Dream Works assembly line by the Gastonia Flash. Though Canepa knows that car...too...is not what it is painted up to be, he continues to misrepresent it as well. Sic semper.

The problem for the Gastonia Flash, Canepa and fellow travellers who seek to change motorsports history for their own gain are the folks here and elsewhere who know the truth of the matter.  The fact of what Canepa's stock cars are and are not is well known by the right people. Hence...his failure to sell them.

A retraction would be good start to maintain some integrity....     scratchchin



I understand the Shelby in another article was also a show car, never raced...   shruggy

Yeah I'm sure a retraction would get Center fold to..........Not!  be lucky if it was shoved between the junk ads in the back. and it wouldn't have a pic of the car on the cover featuring a retraction either. Undecided

Canepa is well known in the concours circle already and those higher end shows aren't about authenticity nearly so much as how connected you are.  imo

I agree 100%, they end up missing, skipping outright or ignoring many excellent cars because the owner doesn't sit on the right board of directors or play at the right golf course and conversely award a lot of questionable cars because those owners do.
On the plus side, the high end concours also bring out many genuine and rare cars that wouldn't ordinarily be seen.

You mean like the #6 is in the July 1970 issue of Car Life???

Yup, story on the 1970 New York Auto Show, April 4-12, 1970.
There , for the world to see, is the unveiled AMX/3 design concept, and in the background........the #6.  

And it is also at the 1970 Alabama 500 AT THE SAME TIME!

As the Alabama 500 was April 10, 11, 12th, it's impressive that the car could be in two places during the same weekend.

This 3 year old popcorn is pretty stale......
I cant believe that this car is still being represented as "THE" race Daytona and not a touring show car when the facts and documentation clearly show otherwise. shruggy
