Best book yet done on American cars of the 1930s. It is a great read from start to finish; and the photos are to be treasured. I was sad when I reached the last page.

This book just cries out for a reprint. The brisk sales of the used copies show that the demand is there.

There are five books in this series: the Classic 30's, the Fascinating 40's, the Fabulous 50's, the Sizzling 60's, and the Sensational 70's. The overall layout and format of each one is identical. Determining which one is best probably hinges on the generation of the particular reader. The coverage of the various automobile models by year and manufacturer is unmatched by any other publication. All are currently out of print and must be purchased on the used market. Prices vary extensively. Particular ones are not always available even from a wide variety of sources. Each book is coffee table size, heavy in weight, printed on good stock and includes extensive black and white and colour illustrations. The text in each is informative and enjoyable to read. Historical events are detailed in chapter introductions which enhance the understanding of causal events affecting automobile design and engineering. Hopefully there is some possibility that the authors will do the 20's and the 80's.

I have the collection of books starting with the Cars of the 40's,50's,60's and ending with the 70's. To my delight I find there is a book to the whole set on the "Classic Cars of the 30's" Then to my utter amazement the price that people want to sell this book for. I paid on average for the other 4 books $20.00 a piece. 3 of them New and 1 used. What makes this book worth $100.00 let alone $400.00????? I will just Google Cars of the 1930's and click "Images" and I can look for free and save the pictures all day long for free!!

As a collector of classic diecast cars and lover of the big ones, I really enjoyed reading the descriptions of each car and viewing the awesome color and black & white pictures. This book is really a first class book on the classical period of American automotive design. It is a well put together book that is not just a great coffee table book for visitors, but a must have for the car enthuesist. The price is high but I had to have it for my collection. Great Book!

I gave this as a gift and they loved it. It was as if I bought it off of the shelf at the bookstore without paying retail.

This whole series of books are fantastic. If you only had one series of books on cars this would be the one to have. They show great photos ( not just drawings), tell about the history, show production numbers, list the year changes took place, etc. This book not only show the popular makes, but also the smaller auto companies.

This book was well worth the price. Very good photos and articles on "the Big 3 " plus most of the other popular makes. One of the reasons I bought this book was to identify the cars in old movies by pausing the recording and looking thru the book. Another great book is Cars of the 40s by the same editors. This book is a must have for anyone interested in auto history.

This book is full of useful information and pictures. My husband restores / collects old cars. He owns the entire series and uses them often.
