We continue to expand our recently created “Strother MacMinn Online Archive” to include articles, videos, books and other MacMinn related materials to share with the world. Today we added his 1959 book to the archives titled “Sports Cars of the Future” which details his thoughts on concept cars, futuristic design as well as his own creation – the LeMans Coupe.
This is the only book that Strother authored. He contributed to other books, wrote magazine articles, gave interviews and critiqued designs – but he only authored this book. And it’s one of my favorite books because of its subject – sports cars of the future. Wow!
You can enjoy this book by clicking on the link below and scrolling through the pages.

To Come To Life Nearly 60 Years Later
We hope you enjoy the materials in our Strother MacMinn Archive and get to know some of his achievements over time that made him a significant designer and teacher for several generations of car designers.
Hope you enjoyed the story, and remember…
The adventure continues here at Undiscovered Classics.
The Strother MacMinn LeMans prototype (and article) is fascinating. Too bad it never
got to actually race. The history of the Ford GT40 at LeMans proved just how difficult
surviving that race actually was. Thanks for posting Geoff!
Patrick…glad you enjoy the article and the Strother MacMinn Archive. Wait ’till you see what I post next – long lost materials that I think you’ll enjoy reviewing. Thanks for your comments. Geoff
