Product description

Review

"The snappy period press quotes and plethora of photos are fascinating." - Classic Cars
"The entire book makes an entertaining and educational read for anybody even vaguely interested in the subject." - Jaguar Magazine, Australia
"The presentation of the wealth of material in the book is extremely well done. The layout is logical, taking each year covered and then treating the reaches chronologically. This book is a must for your library. Congratulations to the author for his fine research and attention to detail." - The Sacred Octagon, New England MG-T Register "Any car buff interested in autos made from 1945 to 1960 MUST have this review of the old-timers, which includes model history and complete ranges. Unique, rare models, production data, and issue dates accompany over a hundred color photos, original ads and brochure images to make for an outstanding story told through text and auto maker advertising." - Bookwatch


"The text gives a good overview of model development and prevailing design trends, but what really catches your eyes are the book's many period ads. Entertaining and informative, whatever classics you're into." - Classic Cars

"Packed with factory photos and ads from the author's own collection. This is a worthwhile book even for those with a knowledge of American indies." - Autonet.ca
"Packed with little-known facts, detailed captions and supportive text that combines with brochures, period literature, factory photos and almost 100 examples of previously unseen colour photos and restorations, this is both an enjoyable and informative read." - Classic Car Buyer
"With a super selection of original brochures, 90+ photos of restored cars, enough text to be informative and interesting, and a final section on some great sporty-looking, limited run, vehicles from Cunningham, Edwards and Flajole, this makes a good value look at some interesting model developments." - Classic Driver, New Zealand
"If you bookshelf is small but your interest expansive, you'll find this book a treat." - Hemmings Classic Car
