The author's objectivity demonstrates that, despite industrial unrest, political strife (and interference) and rubbish cars made in this decade, there were also many fine models, plus significant motoring advances and technological innovations.
British marques ruled at the start of the 70s but were in serious decline by the end, thanks in part to often superior foreign alternatives, which is one of the reasons so many people of my generation who grew up in the 70s, have such fond memories of now forgotten makes and models. Who can remember the Vauxhall Magnum 2.3 saloon (a fast Viva), the author can and so can this reviewer whose Grandad had one (they were QUICK, or seemed so to me at the time).
An informative, entertaining and nostalgic read, written by an author with no axe to grind.
It is smaller in size than expected and I would love it to have more cars.
I wish this series to expand in 50's, 60's, 80's and 90's.
