One of our good friends and author of articles here at Undiscovered Classics, Pal Negyesi, has some exciting news to share. And the “news” is about my favorite topic – rare and unusual cars.
Pal is a automotive historian from Hungary who researches the history of all cars, and like me, has an affinity for cars we rarely see or hear about. He’s taking his interest to the next level and has quietly laid the groundwork to bring out a magazine – one that exclusively focuses on exactly these types of cars. The magazine is called “Rare & Unique Vehicles.”
Let’s hear more from Pal on this project and bringing it to fruition. Take it away Pal 🙂
New Magazine Launch: Rare and Unique Vehicles
By Pal Negyesi
You have seen my articles here at Undiscovered Classics – now I am taking a step forward. I am launching a very special car magazine. It will be a quarterly, subscription based magazine titled Rare & Unique Vehicles. Each issue will focus on a central theme, followed by a few anniversary-related features and a column called “Spin the Globe”. Spin the Globe is a unique column featuring rare, unusual and interesting cars, motorcycles, trucks and buses from around the world.
The first issue will place special emphasis on streamlining with feature articles on:
- Paul Járay
- The Stout Scarab
- Wikov 35 Kapka
- Aerodynamic German Racing Cars of the 1930s and more
Additionally, we’ll look at the Victoria K1 – the first BMW-engined motorcycle from 1920, 50-years of Bond Bug. The ‘Spin the Globe” section will feature a Trabant-based buggy from Hungary (which you have already seen here :)), a French car from 1901 which escaped all the history books, an Australian coupe and more.
I need to collect 400 subscribers in order to launch the magazine. We have set up a website at where you can preview some of the articles and then join the list of subscribers.
Great thanks to Pal for sharing his news with us today and I’ve already committed a subscription in our name. After all, “Undiscovered Classics” isn’t that far off a name from “Rare and Unique Vehicles.” Probably closer than we think 🙂
And for those of you interested here’s a bit more about Pal’s background:
