KIRKUS REVIEW

The roll-call of the cars that ""went like stink"" and inspired a devotion with their definite personalities goes on to those in existence today. Linked to the men and the factories that produced them, this will brush up your knowledge of the wizardry of the Bugattis, the terrific standards of the Rolls-Royce, the sporting appeal of the Mercers, and the capabilities of the Mercedes-Benz, Alfa-Romeo, Cord, and Bentley. There's the untouchable Duesenberg, Hispano-Suiza and Isotta-Fraschini, the amazing qualities of the MG and the superior models of today in Jaguar, Ferrari and Lancia. Steamers and three-wheelers and other experimental types are not overlooked, the great road and speedway races have their share of space and there's a profile of the greatest racer of all times, the car-killer Tazio Nulovari. Mechanical detail, records of high performance, various models and their history, racecourse events -- all of this will be a red hot treat for the automotive fan, who, without a modest fortune to own one of these great glamour babies, can join the author, the editor of--True magazine, on his national and international tour.
