Convertibles: History and Evolution of Dream Cars 
Our review:
  Huge, beautifully illustrated book.  Text is a little awkward but bearable, which I assume is from it either being translated or English not being authors Guzzardi and Rizzo's native language.  I also noticed some occasional factual errors.  Still a fine value considering its size and status as one of the most visually impressive car books in print.  Pretty even balance between pre-war and post-war cars.  It's a pleasure to see an in-print book giving extended coverage to marques like Isotta Fraschini and Hispano Suiza.
