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
