1933 Auburn Salon V-12 Convertible
The Auburn Phaeton pictured
here sold new for $1,848, making it one of the cheapest V-12 phaetons in
the world at that time. As the least expensive marque in the Cord
empire that also comprised Duesenberg, Auburns represented exceptional
value for their day.
The Art of the Automobile: The 100 Greatest Cars
Our review: Writer and photographer Dennis Adler
typically produces great books, and this is no exception.
Here he lists what he regards as 100 of the finest cars of all time. I
don't take these kinds of lists seriously, but for his book it's simply a
springboard to highlight some beautiful cars that are too rarely seen, from the Mercedes Labourdette Skiff with Mahogany Body to the Alfa Romeo Bat 5
to the amazing Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic-Electron Coupe. Stunning
photography, with good image quality.
Price: $31.50 9 ½ x 11 ½, 256 pages,
200+ color illustrations, hardcover
