Strother MacMinn

The book “Sports Cars of the Future”, written and illustrated by Strother MacMinn, was published in 1959 by Sports Car Press, Ltd. MacMinn was one of the Transportation Design instructors at Art Center (Pasadena) and his influence upon generations of automobile designers is without question.

Strother was the first person to introduce me as a kid to the aerodynamic and futuristic designs created by Franco Scaglione called the B.A.T. series (Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica). Hopefully upcoming I will be able to do the same for others but in 3D form and not just as a drawing in a book…

Here are some of Strother’s pages of the B.A.T.’s from his chapter on Franco Scaglione in his published book.
