A world of speed, of noise, of technical achievement, of beauty, and – now and again – of high excitement, captured by the pen and camera of Ralph Stein.

He looks at the many aspects of motoring such as : Recollections – the handsome cars of a lifetime; Chariots without Horses – self-propelled steam carriages and other road-going progenitors of the automobile; The Nobility – Rolls-Royce, Isotta-Fraschini, Napier, Daimler, Hispano-Suiza, Minerva and others; The Sports Cars – Alfa, Bugatti, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bentley, Porsche, MG and other cars for fun and speed; Competition – from long-ago grands prix to today’s action-packed racing scene; Collectors – ancient cars have dwindled to a precious few, but collectors continue to play their restoration drama.

There are many other aspects of motoring discussed in this excellent book.

Hardback in good condition. Dust cover also good.
