John Evans was a high-spirited Welshman who seemed to be perpetually in motion. He became our boss on August 1, 1985, when we joined Murdoch Magazines and went to work on the project that would become Automobile Magazine. He was a keen deep-water sailor with three Atlantic crossings to his credit, and he was also a surprisingly talented driver of vintage racing cars. During the short time that he was our overseer, he had a Morgan, an Austin-Healey 100, and a replica C-type Jaguar, which came to grief one night when he was driving it through the Holland Tunnel to his home in rural New Jersey. My memory of the Healey was that it had suffered every known performance tweak and was about as appropriate for a pur-sang vintage sports-car event as a Smokey Yunick Indy car.
