The tenth issue of Linkage is now on the press and will be on its way to subscribers at the end of the month. Here’s a look at what you’ll find inside:
Donald Osborne points to a bright future driven by both enthusiasts and engineers — and geared to tackle the unique challenges that surround the car world.
Jeff Zurschmeide takes a deeper look into the evolving art of 3D printing, and how it’s eroding the reality of unobtainable parts.
Basem Wasef highlights how an ex-Eastern Bloc hot rodder perfected his craft a world away from the California car scene — and how that craft, and a hand-built Buick Shafer 8 Indy Car, have shaped his new life in America.
Now it can be told: Simon Kidston gives us his behind the scenes look at the record-setting $143m Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR sale.
Jay Leno looks at some of the automotive innovations that we take for granted — and how they happened.
Rich Taylor takes us on a journey of Tri-Five Chevy wagon projects.
Chester Allen talks with Tim Burton — the man who built and runs the 2.42 million-subscriber YouTube channel Shmee150 — about supercars, social media and success.
Brett Berk queries designers at Dodge, Buick and Ferrari: How do you balance your unique history with your future?
Bob Lutz, Ed Welburn and Roberto Giolito look back on a century of innovation. What were the most important developments in the post-war era?
Jay Harden dives deep into how passion for the past is driving two different companies’ innovations for the future — both in terms of classic EV conversions and hot rod hydrogen power.
And we take a look at the evolving market for modern classics, as well as Mecum’s $26.4m Las Vegas auction, Bonhams’ $158k sale of a 1907 Stanley Model EX Steam Runabout, RM Sotheby’s first foray into Munich and the 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEL AMG that sold for a huge $257k in Miami.
