Format: Hardcover
This is not just a book about cars. It's about people, corporate culture, and a company town. Helen Earley was an Oldsmobile employee for many years. Yes, she discusses the cars and the ups and downs of Oldsmobile. However, the reader also gets background on what it was like to work and live in Lansing, MI, the home of Oldsmobile. Thus, readers see the interweaving of corporate cuture and community that make up a company town. Because of that, this is not just a book for Oldsmobile fans. It is also a very interesting piece of business and social history.

This book gives you the history of Oldsmobile. Lots of black and white and color pictures. It covers more than just the cars. It shows what was going on during that time period 1970-79 ect. I gave it a 4 star because I would have liked even more pictures of their cars. If youi are an Olds fan you will like the book. I would look for a deal on it if you can.

Another great book about my favorite General Motors line of cars. If you're an Olds fan like me, you won't regret buying this book.
