  1. The Tubolare Zagato’s classic beauty aside. It’s only fitting since your roots are the Alfa Romeo Market Letter. It’s a no-brainer!

  2. The cover design for January 2018 is really interesting and different from the Image from a camera. I selected cover #2 as the Ferrari 250 GTO is the most incredible car and it’s still beautiful. The cover seems to depict the 250 GTO that was campaigned by the private team in England. My second choice is the Alfa TZ 1 which is beautiful and a great design but the era that the GTO ran is undeniable. The third one is Ok nothing special. I would love to see SCM do an article on the Ferrari 250 GTO that was made by Mr Favre as his creations were so close to the original that it forced Enzo to take legal action. I remember seeing Mr. Favre’s GTO at the New York Auto Show in the middle 1970’s and seeing his work up close and speaking with him was a event I had never forgotten. I would like to see a profile on the Big Healey and if the auction commentator can state if the Jaguars are Manual, Manual with Overdrive or Automatic. I love SCM an excellent publication.

  3. Love the magazine, my granddaughter was thrilled to be in the November issue, kids and cars. My oldest granddaughter gets her learners permit next month, can’t wait to learn how to drive our TD.

  4. Actually, I didn’t like any of them. I really don’t like the trendy (and overused) “reduced color count” effect, nor how only parts of the car are shown.

  5. The TZ1 (Zagato) and the 250 GTO (Scaglietti) are close cousins; almost brothers, considering than Enzo Ferrari raced for Alfa Romeo until the late 30’s so, for me, any of the two Italians represent the same family ties.

  6. I do not like any of the covers. I far prefer actual photographs. Why would you change now to celebrate an anniversary? Ugh.

  7. Three of your best covers ever. Maybe you should do all three, one under the other, or the I voted for the Alfa, because I’m an Alfa guy. Or

  8. I love Nicholas Hunziker’s artwork. Great family history with Nic too given a Great Uncles race Romulus back in the 30s.

  9. Is backround color and car color being the same considered ‘fashionable’? If so, I’m apposed.

  10. I’m a huge fan of Hunziker’s artwork (I have about a dozen of his t-shirts) and an even bigger fan of SCM. Great to see you join forces for the celebration!

    I started subscribing to SCM back when you only used artwork for the covers instead of photography. I think all of these covers represent a respectful nod to your past while looking ahead. Well done!

  11. I love all of Nicolas Hunziker’s art work, but am am extremely partial to his Porsche & Steve McQueen works.

  12. Your not a true enthusiast (aka masochist:) until you’ve owned an Alfa! Plus being a person favorite of Kieth Martins, and being a TZ1 just puts in a whole other kinda cool sexy then Gto and F1. Which are amazing and beautiful but obvious (like all the kids with countach posters! This keep d had 935 DP:).
