I had all the fifties and sixties editions of these books but handed them down to my young relatives. Then I found that I was missing them but I couldn't ask for them back so I am now collecting them again. Great memories of the cars I used to spot in the streets when I was a lad. All the important information and photos of nearly every car on the market at the time of publication. Not just Britain but nearly every country in the world. Even now when I am watching old films I try to identify old cars seen in street scenes and then check to see if I am right. Sad I know but nostalgia is brilliant.

I've wanted a first edition copy of this little book since I was a child and they aren't easy to come by at realistic money - this one is a gem!
