PORTLAND, Ore. (Aug. 9, 2021) – Sports Car Market has named its top “40 Under 40” for 2021. This is the second time the magazine has recognized 40 car enthusiasts under 40 years old who are leaders in the collector-car world.
Hundreds of nominations were received from SCM readers and the final list of honorees was selected by the magazine’s editorial staff. “We are proud to share their stories and look forward to seeing what each of these individuals will accomplish next,” said SCM Executive Editor Jeff Sabatini.
The 2021 “40 Under 40” feature appears in the October issue of Sports Car Market Magazine (www.sportscarmarket.com), which ships to SCM Members, bookstores and newsstands in mid-August. SCM is sold at Barnes & Noble, Hudson News, and many other independent stores.
“This group has not only inherited interests, knowledge and skills from their elders, but have created their own automotive pursuits,” said SCM Publisher Keith Martin. “They are helping to ensure that the future of the collector-car hobby is bright, most of all by sharing their enjoyment.”
The 2021 class recognizes men and women ranging in age from 25 to 39 who have based their lives and careers around automobiles. The honorees include professionals from a variety of backgrounds, such as auction specialists, businesspersons, collector-car dealers, entrepreneurs, museum curators, restoration experts, and technicians. An inaugural group of honorees was named in 2017.
