July 2016 Cover Poll

Our Art Director, David Tomaro, has created three possible cover concepts, and we’d like to know which one is your favorite. It should all take less than a minute, and your answers help determine the content of our magazine. Voting ends Sunday, May 22, at Midnight PST. If you have any additional thoughts about SCM, regarding either the print magazine or our electronic newsletter, please post them in the comments section below.

Do you use your smart phone while you are at an auction?
If yes, which of the following do you use it for?
How interested would you be in an SCM app that looked up pricing history of cars while you are at an auction site?
Vote for your favorite cover:

  • 1972 Jaguar E-type Series III V12 roadster

  • 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider Veloce

  • 1987 Ford RS200 coupe


  1. a suggestion–your publication is vastly similar to many others. Might you try featuring collections, the collectors, their interests, motivation, disposition of vehicles, problems( storage, maintenance, changing interests,display)

  2. Personally, I think SCM is perfect. Maybe a little more on “affordable” classics.

  3. I find SCM an excelent magazine. just two coments:

    A monthly scale even if graphic only on your opinion on the evolution of markets in europe and u.s.a. separately

    also instead of complete quarterly price issues in the computer, go back to printing pocket price guides, even if they cover changes only, relative to the basic yearly issues.

  4. I selected cover number 1 as the Jaguar Series 3 is beautiful especially in Pale Primrose and in roadster equally more so.It seems that this is the first Jaguar to appear on the cover so it’s long overdue. I love the series 2 e-type as that was the last of true and pure XKE before the forced marriage with British Leyland which was the beginning of the end of the the great cars coming out of England. It was sad when they killed the Austin Healey and MG and seeing how cheap they were in allocating monies for new models. Cover #3 would have been a good choice as very little has been written about it and it was a true exotic from FOMOCO. Cover number 2 is OK.

  5. Remarkably, all of these covers are sub-par somehow. Could be the glass of wine. I second the “….more on affordable classics…” comment. Prefacing the vote with questions that don’t apply to many of your subscribers simply generates bad data and low-level annoyance.
