Vintage Cars ([Classic Car Guides])
Michael Sedgwick

Mike Roffe , John Marshall (illustrator).

Vintage cars provides a perspective of cars & motoring in the 1919-30 period. The eighty models described are representative of both luxury & popular cars & the author succeeds in illuminating historical accuracy with an engaging view of the evolution of the automobile as well as giving indications of the emergence of national characteristics in cars. Why did the Citroen of 1926 not squeak & rattle like its predecessors? And why were 90% of the world’s cars in 1929 sedans & coupe’s?

Arranged chronologically, the cars have been chosen from an international viewpoint. Particular attention has been paid to authenticity of colour & detail in splendid full colour artwork of each car. Contemporary photographs & colour transparencies as well as technical details add to the wealth of illustration.
