Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A lavishly illustrated collection of the 1,001 most groundbreaking and beautiful cars, from the earliest pioneering horseless carriages to the latest custom models for connoisseurs. This latest volume in the hugely popular 1001 series showcases the world’s best designed and most important cars. With stunning full-color photography representing the highest achievements of car design and visceral descriptions of what it is like to turn the key and rev the engine, this collection is the next best thing to a test drive. Henry Ford jump-started the age of the automobile with the Model T. Since then, the automobile has evolved from chugging workhorse to tailfin-era showboat to sleek status symbol. Automobile buffs can never get enough information on classic and contemporary cars, making 1001 Dream Cars the perfect gift for car buffs and anyone who follows car design. It offers a lush visual history of the automobile, decade-by-decade highlights of the technological innovations, major manufacturers, engineering feats, and designers, and the interplay between popular culture and car design. No mere machine or convenience, the car is a reflection of the cultural zeitgeist, and 1001 Dream Cars celebrates America’s long fascination with it.
