  • Description

    The Turin Motor Show which opened its 12-day run on Wednesday (Oct 30), let the American cat out of the bag. Four days before the 'home' motor show in New York, the 1958 models were on view.

    And for the first time, potential customers know just what the designers had been cooking up behind a heavy shroud of secrecy.

    They have, at all events, made no concessions to the problem of parking which every country complains about; their cars are still charabanc-size. The craze for bigger and brighter batteries of rear lights seems to know no bounds - which is all very well for the driver, but not so funny for the motorist behind.

    Apart from the American models the show present the mixture as seen at the Paris and London - with a preponderance of economy cars.

    Twelve nations took part in the show. USA have the biggest representation of cars and accessories with 19 makes of cars; Britain is second with 18.
