A lavishly illustrated celebration of the unique cars of the swinging sixties
Vintage car connoisseurs will love this blast back in time to when driving was still fun and buying a new car was a thrilling family event. It was a golden period for iconic classic cars—the Mini Cooper, Jaguar E-type, AC Cobra, and MGB—but also a time when British manufacturers really got their act together with stylish family models. Who can forget great little runabouts with evocative names like Anglia, Herald, Imp, Viva, Cortina, and Hunter? Meanwhile, Rovers, Triumphs, and Jags were delighting executives as they cruised along near-empty motorways. It was too good to last, of course, with regulations looming and fancy foreign cars creeping on to Britain's driveways, but here Giles Chapman recalls all the key cars of the era. This book is richly illustrated with fantastic period photos that bring the 1960s roaring back to life.
