Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A celebration of our love affair with the car, from the humble Citroen 2CV to the sleek Mercedes 300 SL Roadster, with owners' stories and vehicle notes
 
Forty two vehicles from around the world are featured in this gem for vintage car and retro design enthusiasts, including the small but perfectly formed Fiat 500, the Bavarian Goggomobil, Willys WW2 Jeep, the Plymouth Belvedere with its extraordinary trademark wings, the popular and trustworthy Morris Minor, and the Mini, the design success of the 1960s. Cars are frequently an expression of their owners' personalities, and the wealth of examples and owners' stories included here are testament to this. The book also includes details of extraordinary journeys, some short and some long, that some of these cars have made—London to Mexico and 2,000-mile round trips to Italy, along with heartwarming stories of how a car has become a priceless part of the family. The photography focuses on the design specifics which have earned these cars the label "classic," while the owners' stories and accompanying vehicle notes, which explain the influence of car design on the wider design community, offer interesting insights as well as inspiration to the design conscious. It is guaranteed to leave the reader contemplating the joys of embarking on a road trip in any one of the iconic cars featured.

Synopsis:

Following on from My Cool Motorcyle, a celebration of stylish scooters and the strong fraternity among scooter riders
 
Much more than just a mode of transport, the humble scooter is fashionable, stylish, and trendy. As many of the stories featured here demonstrate, owners take their scooters on miraculous adventures form city streets to glorious country escapes. Taking examples from across different continents and cultures, this book explores the most iconic brands of scooter, from Vespa and Prima to Cushman and Goggo. Each section covers a selection of historical information, owners' stories, and vehicle notes. For scooter owners or those interested in scooter history, this book will inspire and intrigue.
