This series documents the fascinating history of the automobile between 1930 and the present day. Abundant photographs and superb drawings show the most beautiful and those that are long since forgotten--a grand tour ranging from brilliant fiasco to worldwide success. Here you can read of elegant limousines from the Thirties, discrete vehicles from the postwar period, minicars of the Fifties, and the onset of the horsepower mania. The Sixties gave us both big and small cars, wonderful sports cars, ugly and practical cars, and the ones with fins. Then came Japanese cars and, in the early Seventies, the oil crisis. This was the end for American muscle-cars, but the Eighties brought supercars that outdid anything the world had yet seen. During the Nineties, cars became ever safer, more economical, and faster. We began to navigate with the help of satellites, while the market for Multi Purpose and Sport Utility Vehicles simply exploded. All these and more developments are highlighted in this exciting volume, making it a must for every library.
