Cars were initially the result of pure craftsmanship, and as passenger cars were based on the concept of the carriage. As manufacturers moved away from metal-panelled wooden frames to an all-steel design, they hesitantly ventured to adopt new forms. Between the two World Wars North America had the world's largest fleet of cars; this also meant that their design became an increasingly important sales factor. Professsional automobile design was established. Containing many marvellous photographs and analytical texts, this book makes exciting reading for all those who love cars.
