Duncan Pittaway is not a man to buy boring cars. He is, famously, the owner of the Fiat S76 “Beast of Turin”. He also owns a pre-war Bugatti Type 35, an Edwardian Monarch and a similar Curtis. So when he bought something from across the pond, you knew it was going to be interesting.

Meet Duncan’s Bill Thomas Cheetah. A car designed to end the reign of Ford and Shelby’s Cobra, never quite lived up to what Thomas and Chevrolet would have wished, but left enough of an impression on the world to still be beloved.
