Nothing is new under the sun and classic cars books come and go. But here, instead of a heavy, large, glossy book of classic car images and details destined to stay on a shelf, is something new. This book is designed to be read as a companion, a book that can go in the car or on a 'plane, and which can be read in full, or dipped into anywhere for a classic car fix. Old stories and new details are presented and cover all eras of our cars.
Gathered here is a compilation of the author's published and unpublished adventures and opinions about the design and the driving of some of the greatest cars in motoring history. From 'vintagent' to 'modern classic', pristine to oily-rag, up hill, down dale and across continents, award-winning motoring author, designer and serial classic car owner, Lance Cole, charts the great classic car enthusiasm in a series of engaging essays about cars, car design and the men that made the motor industry.
From tales of Malcolm Sayer to Bedelia, and of BMW, Jaguar, Bugatti and Porsche, to tales of old Saabs and rusty Citroens, classic car life is here. Erik Carlsson, Jacques Gerin, Giovanni Michelotti and Innes Ireland are just a few of the names that can be found in these pages. From design to driving, here is a book that is a classic car adventure.
This amazing book is a tour de force examination of a range of fantastic super cars - a journey through classic designs and performance, peppered with suitably amazing photographs. A celebration of motoring quite unlike anything I've ever seen before! Priceless!Books Monthly
An enjoyable effort reminding us that in the relatively brief history of the motorcar we've been treated to some impressive examples and gifted individuals. But, it doesn't get stuck with the Model T - you'll get some future classic enjoyment too. And that's what the book itself could be - a future classic.NetGalley, reviewed by Kevin Golding
Eclectic nature of the choices the author makes in terms of subjects for examination is intriguing and quite interesting.NetGalley, reviewed by William Harris
