About the Author:

Quentin Willson is a well-known TV commentator and best-selling author of Cars: A Celebration and Classic American Cars.

From Booklist:

Car buffs won't find a '32 Packard or a '48 Lincoln Continental in these pages, only contemporary classics between the 1950s and the early 1990s. But what is in this beautifully illustrated, oversize book won't disappoint even those enthusiasts who believe that much was lost when running boards went out of style. Willson and his coauthor admit that defining "classic" is problematic, for how people feel about cars is "purely emotional, fiercely partisan, terminally subjective, and completely without logic or order." Nonetheless, they proudly offer 90 automobiles that for them fit the classic bill: "interesting, diverting, beguiling." Featured on double-page spreads are photographic and textual profiles of such dandies as the Bentley R-Type Continental (in production from 1952 to 1955), the 1957 Buick Roadmaster, the Citroen DS Decapotable (1960 to 1971), the Datsun 240Z (1969 to 1973), and the Lamborghini Countach 5000S (1973 to 1990). Feast on these! Brad Hooper
