While browsing at the local bookstore, I picked this off the shelf and started thumbing through it. As an owner of a car from this era, I naturally went to that year and looked to see other cars like mine.
To my surprise a picture of the car I owned was inside! Well, I had to buy it. After getting the book home, I discovered that the book is great and very well put together.
There is not another book out there that covers this period of car as throughly as this one.
If you love cars from the 60's or happen to own one. You got to check this book out!

This book is arranged with one chapter per year from 1960 through to 1969. For each year, each of the major American car brands is profiled with pictures of the models that they were producing and the updates and innovations that were notable. Along with this are many insights and observations in easy to read point form. The book contains thousands of pictures (mostly in colour) of cars, car ads, and anything else related to cars. Simply brilliant to flick through because so many great cars are listed and pictured. If you love the cars of this area then you will love this great book. There are many book that go into detail about specific makes models and years, but this one covers an entire decade of the US auto industry in a way that allows you to look at one manufacturers cars alongside another's to get the overall historical picture. This is a very well presented book and now I'm keen to get the similar ones for the 70s and 50s. Overall, very good value for money.

Buy this book for the great pictures, appreciate it for the snappy trivia. Lots of cool color images and rare factory stuff. A car-lover must have.

Both the Cars of the Sizzling 60s and Cars of the Fabulous 50s are excellent value, and very unique finds.

All the cars I fondly remembered growing up. A few more pictures would have made this a 5 star book.

There are lots of great pictures and information on the cars of the '60s. Broken down by year and by manufacturer, this is a great book for classic car enthusiasts!

This book really is a must have for the old car enthusiast. It went perfectly with the 50's car book I had from the same author. Great pictures and lots of detail.
