Art of the Classic Car PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Art of the Classic Car free pdf The rarity and historical significance of prewar classic and antique cars make them hot commodities on the collector car market. These are the automobiles that populate the fairways and manicured lawns of the world's greatest car shows in alluring locales like Pebble Beach, California, and Amelia Island, Florida. These are the cars that bring a hush to the hall when they roll across the blocks at auctions around the world. These are the cars that fill the world's greatest collections, like those of Ralph Lauren, Mark Knopfler, and various members of royal families. These are the cars from history's premiere automakers: hallowed names like Packard, Duesenberg, Stutz, Bugatti, Mercedes-Benz, Cord, and others--six-figure and million-dollar machines that thrill Barrett-Jackson audiences and drive bidders to frenzy. "Art of the Classic Car" features the stunning studio photography of Peter Harholdt ("Art of the Hot Rod," "Art of the Muscle Car"), lavished on the most significant automobiles from the classic era: the 1910s to early 1940s. Every page contains framable-quality portraits of some of the most important cars ever made, with each car accompanied by a short essay from automotive expert Peter Bodensteiner that places the model contextually within automotive history. Complete with period ads and promotional art, "Art of the Classic Car" is the most beautiful pictorial history of classic cars ever produced.
