From the cover: “CLASSIC CARS ARE DEFINED BY THE CLASSIC CAR CLUB OF America as "fine or unusual foreign or domestic motor cars built between, and including, the years 1925 and 1948, and distinguished for their respective fine design, high engineering standards, and superior workmanship”. These vehicles are functional works of fine art and are the most collectible automobiles in the world. Written by veteran reporter and classic car enthusiast Rob L. Wagner, and lavishly illustrated with photographs by noted automotive photographer Vince Manocchi and others, Classic Cars portrays the fabulous luxury automobiles of this era in all their glory. In addition, Classic Cars provides detailed historical profiles of the designers and manufacturers responsible for these masterpieces of automotive engineering. The result is a beautiful and highly informative volume that will not only dazzle you with gorgeous photographs, but will also draw you into the heady atmosphere of a vanished world where gutsy entrepreneurs took the world by storm with their exotic creations. Divided into sections by country, Classic Cars follows the fortunes of the major marques of the classic car era, including such well-known U.S. manufacturers as Lincoln, Packard, and Cadillac, as well as more obscure European ones such as Delahaye, Hispano-Suiza, and Talbot-Lago.”
