Nothing ‘sub’ about him
Col Menzies ( below left) joined Wheels as assistant editor to Phil Scott with the June 1988 issue. He returned to his first love of newspapers around July the following year. He later died of cancer in 2011 at just 61. Scotty remembers Col as one of the great sub-editors, producing some of Wheels’ best headlines and intros: Phil’s favourite was on a road test of an underpowered Peugeot. It simply read: Gallic Bred; No Herbs.
