About the author (2007)

Sam Dawson has been a devoted fan of classic cars in general for as long as he can remember. He sees it as inevitable that he would one day turn his enthusiasm and writing skills to writing a book on the subject. Always fascinated by the glamorous eras of the '50s, '60s and '70s, and coming from a politics/sociological background academically, he chose the Grand Turismo machines as his subject, approaching it from a cultural as well as a technical perspective.
