"The Stable of the Thoroughbreds" | Cars from Mills B. Lane's collection
Classic Car Collection

Many a man dreams of owning just one beautiful classic car. Mill B. Lane, Jr., of Atlanta, has collected 50 dreams. By patiently listening and looking all over the U. S. and Europe, he has acquired an assembly of great cars that covers the whole span of automotive history. Some are now very rare. The Packard Boat Tail Speedster is one of only six in this country. Some have distinguished pedigrees. The Bugatti Royale was commissioned for a king. Some, like the Maybach Zeppelin, are big and glamorous.

Car illustrations by well renown auto designer, Count Alexis De Sakhnoffsky (1901-1964). He was a Russian-American industrial designer who was known for his streamline style in automotive designs. Before coming to America in 1929, he had become a well known designer of European sports cars. In America, he worked for such companies as Hayes, Packard, and Tucker.

These cars were part of a Classic Car Collection of Mills B. Lane Jr. of Atlanta, a banker (1912-1989). This collection was showcased and presented by the magazine, 'TRUE - The Mans Magazine', in their November 1962 issue.


Патентные заявки этот господин начинал словами: "Я, Алексис де Сахновский, субъект царского режима России, резидент Филадельфии..." и далее как положено. До эмиграции он звался Алексей Сахновский, а после его франкофонский автограф Alexis de Sakhnoffsky можно встретить на эскизах автомобилей Nash, Packard, La Salle, Chrysler, American Austin. Выходец из России сделал себе в Америке блестящую карьеру стилиста, став в один ряд с Харли Эрлом и Гордоном Бьюригом. Сахновский занимался и промышленным дизайном, создавал интерьеры пассажирских авиалайнеров, рисовал радиоприемники, радиолы и разную бытовую технику. Его перу принадлежат и иллюстрации автомобилей, часто встречавшиеся в журнале Esquire, с которым он сотрудничал.
