From the cover: “The survival of Aston Martin as a high-quality, low-volume prestige car maker throughout the post-war highs and lows of the British motor industry is a matter of no small wonder. It has been on the brink of extinction several times. That this most British of marques still thrives today is due not only to the image and quality of the product, but also to the character of the men who have influenced its fortunes over the years — David Brown, Victor Gauntlett, Walter Hayes - not to mention the designers, engineers and dedicated craftsmen on the shop floor. The story of Aston Martin and its sister marque Lagonda is as much about personalities and politics as it is about motor cars. Every intriguing aspect of the company’s post-war development is covered in this lively and engaging chronicle, the latest in the Haynes Classic Makes series. Model by model, through the celebrated DB series and the V8s, Edwards details each car’s development, the engines, bodywork and appointments, and shares with us his driving impressions. Superb photographs, many never before published and the majority in colour, are supported by detailed specifications and buying hints.”
