The end of World War 2 represented a landmark in the history of motoring. The great factories which had been geared to war materials switched to the production of cars to meet the increasing demand for private motoring in the post-war world. World War 2 is now far enough away for the ensuing years to come into some sort of focus.

Among the many cars manufactured in recent decades some stand out and can rightly claim to be classic. Michael Twite, editor of Popular Motoring, has knowledge of the international motor industry which is second to none, and in this volume he has made an expert selection of the cars which have dominated the post-war scene. His selection is based on a number of criteria: commercial success; numbers of vehicles manu-factured; but above all mechanical prowess.

Eighty-one individual cars from six countries have been featured; all specially photographed with thirty in full colour. Jasper Spencer-Smith, the photographer, is well known in the magazine and book fields for his brilliant photography of transport subjects.

Hardback and dust cover in good condition throughout. One minor tear to top left of spine/cover.
