From School Library Journal
Adult/High School-This look at automobiles of the past is filled with facts and color photographs of American car hood ornamentation, horn buttons, and emblems. Heavier on pictures than text, the book still achieves a balance as fine as the buffed chrome on the author's assorted artifacts. Steacy begins with an introduction about his initial and combined interest in brightworks, followed by a very readable, fact-filled history lesson about car design and insight into the how-to of collecting ornamentation. Factoids and period illustrations are integrated with the photographic spreads, making each page fun to browse. Car buffs, collectors, hobbyists, and those who have photography and graphic-design aspirations will be pleased with this visually fetching book.-Karen Sokol, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA
