Description
Prince sang about the iconic “Little Red Corvette” and the Beach Boys paid tribute to the “Little Deuce Coupe.” The controversial horseless carriage became a sign of affluence in its earliest days, and the car continues to be an image-maker to this day. Since the first models rolled off the assembly line, the American automobile has been a status symbol and symbol of the enduring strength of this country. Stunning color photographs and a lively narrative by one of today’s foremost automotive writers tell the story of America’s ongoing love affair with cars. Featuring classic cars, sports cars, and luxury automobiles, this handsome book brings together pictures and descriptions of the most impressive blends of technology, art, beauty, and adventure. From the groundbreaking Model A Ford to the state-of-the-art models of today, cars from every era are showcased in hundreds of glorious full-color photographs that demonstrate the designs that made these cars true icons. Readers experience the excitement generated by the elegant cars of Packard’s golden era in the 1930s, and admire the outrageous fins, gleaming chrome, and dazzling two-toned paint jobs of the cars of the 50s. Ford Mustangs and Corvettes also make an appearance, as do such undeniably American classics as Pontiacs, Chryslers, Cadillacs, and many more.
