Amazing feats of innovation and engineering, iconic vehicles are not just stylish and powerful, they re irresistible symbols of status, freedom, and progress. Now "Cars: A Complete History" puts that sense of engine-uity back into the collector s hands by providing 50 press-out models of the world s most distinguished vehicles, along with an informative and entertaining account of each car s role in automobile history in a fun and imaginative two-part book. Photos and illustrations of cars, both classic and modern, accompany the celebrities who brought some of them their fame, including Al Capone and the Duesenberg Model J, Sean Connery s James Bond in the Aston Martin DB5, and Steve McQueen with the Ford Mustang Mark 1 in "Bullitt." From social and cultural history to the advancement of technological innovation, readers will learn everything from who drove the 1959 Austin Mini to which car prompted the introduction of a national speed limit."
