Our review: I believe this book to be the finest achievement in the
history of automotive journalism. Author Beverly Rae Kimes has put
together the work of a lifetime in nearly 1600 pages and over 5,000 photos.
The completeness of this book is breathtaking--it includes car manufacturers
that never got past the stage of announcements for cars that were never built! For the larger manufacturers,
there are specs, stats, options, and even a contemporary (if sometimes
guesstimate) priceguide. You can get lost for hours in this exceedingly
well-written book. Very highly recommended.
