Book - 2000
Rate this:
Quick, tight, and heaven on curves, the roadster provides a driving experience unlike any other. Car buffs will simply devour this tantalizing and unique history of top-down two-seaters, featuring a garage-full of nimble sports cars; automobiles born to go flat-out fast at Le Mans; and seemingly sedate sedans that secretly possess the souls of race cars. More than 100 photos show off these beautiful classics, capturing the physical sensations of being in an open car, on the open road. Proudly displayed on these magnificent pages are the nimble prewar British beauties, including the MG, Triumph, and the eternally glamorous Morgan. The sleek Alfa Romeos and Bugattis have the smooth, swift Continental style; these were built for speed, not comfort. Meanwhile, in the U.S., the luxurious Auburn and Duesenberg were the cars of the stars. Porsches, the MG-TC, Jaguar XKE, Ferrari: every car will make you hunger to get behind the wheel.
