Writers, being a cranky and temperamental bunch, have often whined that producing a magazine is little different from working on an automobile assembly line. It feels like a non-stop process, and some people get to do the cool stuff (writing cover stories, for instance), while others are stuck with more mundane tasks like spell- and fact-checking — the automotive equivalent of tightening the lug nuts, we suppose.
But sometimes those worlds converge, and one of our lucky writers — in this case senior editor Michael Finger — not only got to write about an astonishing vintage car collection, but as you can see here, actually got to sit in some of these incredible cars. Here he’s pretending that he’s about to take a rare Delorean out for a spin — the all-stainless-steel-bodied car that was so prominently featured in the Back to the Future movies.
No, this one didn’t come with a Flux Capacitor. But it was a sweet ride anyway.
Now just where were all these cars stored? Well, we can’t tell you that, not just yet. But watch this space for updates on this story.
In the meantime, Michael says, “Roads? We don’t need roads.” We fear he’ll never be the same.
