Editorial Reviews

A great book for car and truck buffs, General Motors Parade of Progress & A Futurliner Returns has been published by Futurliner #10's owner, the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States, Inc. (NATMUS). With 232 glossy 8 1/2 x 11 pages (24 in color) and 380 pictures, the book tells two big stories: 1) the story of the General Motors Parade of Progress from 1933 to 1956 and 2) the amazing story of the resurrection and authentic restoration of Futurliner #10 in Beaverdam, Michigan by a group of highly motivated volunteers referred to as The Restoration Team. In addition, there are stories told by Paraders (men who traveled with and presented the various exhibits that constituted the parade) along with stories of each of the 9 (out of 12) surviving Futurliners. The "General Motors Parade of Progress" section and the "Paraders' Profiles" were written by Bruce Berghoff of Arcadia, Michigan, author of The GM Motorama: Dream Cars of the Fifties. The story of the restoration of Futurliner #10 was written by George Ferris, author of several articles on automotive history. Ably edited by Donald Bratt, a restoration team member. All proceeds go to the National Automotive and Truck Museum for the preservation and ongoing exhibit of Futurliner #10. Hemming's Classic Car-... "There are books about GM cars aplenty, but books about GM--the company and its heritage--are plenty scarce.....Most definitely, this is a worthwhile book about GM's history, and ours, in the form of an enormous vehicle." Old Cars Weekly - ..." This new, self-published book from those NATMUS volunteers tells the Futurliner story their way, and makes for a richer experience to all who read it. This book includes every bit of information one would like on the topic, and to keep things fun, it also includes a bit of humor from the people who restored Futurliner #10."

An amazing look at the GM Parade of Progress and the restoration of Futurliner #10. Clearly a labor of love by a highly dedicated team of volunteers. Excellent quality with many photographs, the restoration process is nicely detailed.

My husband loves this book, that I bought his as a present after seeing the #3 Futurliner in Salt Lake City at Kindig-It Designs. The quality is wonderful, the pictures beautiful, can believe it was so inexpensive!
