For automobile buffs who can never get enough information on classic cars, here is a book that features the most celebrated cars of the 50s. The 1950s was a time both of austerity and excess. In the United States, huge engines, fins and chrome dominated the output of Buick, Chevrolet and Oldsmobile, while in Europe design innovation and a depressed economy produced economical wonders such as the VW van and Fiat 500. British manufacturers such as Jaguar and Bentley concentrated on the export market, while the UK produced timeless utility vehicles such as the Land Rover and Morris Minor. Looking in detail at more than 60 vehicles popular during the 1950s, Hot Cars of the 50s features over 500 color photographs, and explains the technical innovations, styling details, engine design, and everything else you may want to know on the subject.
