Great British Cars : A Field Guide to Classic Models from 1950 to 1970
Great British Cars celebrates the cars commonly seen on the nation's roads during a golden age of motoring. From the 1950s to the 1970s, Britons drove such models as the Ford Zephyr, Hillman Imp, Triumph Herald, Ford Capri, Vauxhall Viva and, of course, the Morris Minor 1000. While rarely seen now on our roads, the 40 models described here still have a special place in many drivers' hearts. Join Stephen Barnett on a nostalgic road trip back in time, in this beautifully illustrated celebration of classic cars.
Stephen Barnett grew up in the era covered by this book and owned or drove many of the cars featured, as well as spending untold hours attempting, usually successfully, to keep them on the road.
