After graduating from the Beaux-arts in Paris in 1970, Patrick began drawing illustrated strips for the popular magazine Pilote. He remained with that company until the mid-1980s, producing some fifty books. In the 1990s Patrick started writing for classic car magazines, with particular emphasis on American cars, especially the products of the Ford Motor company -- he owns a 1952 Lincoln Capri hardtop. However, most of the twenty books he has written for French publisher etai have been about popular French cars.David Burgess-Wise is the author of over 30 motoring books, including specially commissioned centennial histories of Daimler and Vauxhall, as well as this book.
