"Great cars", writes Ralph Stein, "have one thing in common: they all feel alive when you drive them". This vitality, excitement, and aliveness are at the heart of the book. Ralph Stein has here narrowed the wide world of automobiles to the twenty-five greatest marques ever built: Alfa, Bugatti, Mercedes, Rolls, Vauxhall, Invicta, Mercer, Hispano-Suiza, Duesenberg, Ferrari, Lanchester, Talbot-Lago, Simplex, MG, Lancia, Aston Martin, Delage, Stutz, Frazer Nash, Jaguar, Lincoln, Isotta-Fraschini, Cord, Packard, and Bentley. Stein has caught the unique essence of their appeal to eye and ear - and Tom Burnside has preserved it in unique photographs. thirty-five years of close attention to excellence in automobiles have given Ralph Stein a formidable expertise which is happily laced with warm affection, pure enthusiasm, and a saving humor. here he explains, in stylish prose and with total recall, his choice of the twenty-five marques deserving the accolade of truly great. his selections are superbly illustrated by Tom Burnside portraits of collector's items photographed on location in the United States and Europe. Together Stein and Burnside have created a book which should have a place on every automobile enthusiast's shelf.
