Griffith Borgeson

Griffith Borgeson (December 21, 1918 – June 29, 1997) was an American race car historian, described by the Society of Automotive Engineers as one of the world's preeminent automotive historians.

His most well-known work, The Golden Age of the American Racing Car, almost single-handedly rescued the memory of an entire era of brilliant race car work in the United States, an era whose memory was being lost.

Borgeson was editor-in-chief of Motor Trend magazine; he also wrote for Sports Car Illustrated magazine (now Car and Driver).
