I have old Campy brakes on my 1990 Harry Hall (see the pictures section) and would like to convert them to quick release for those fattish tyres.

Looking at some newer brakes it seems to me that it ought to be possible to add the camming release device or bodge something.

Any suggestions?

add levers that have the QR function, these release enough cable to allow removal of wheels.

The QR were in the levers that goes with the calipers.

No need to worry now - I've just won some rather nice Ultegra brakes on Ebay! Yeehah!
