Format: Paperback
The Author's of this book have done a fantastic job of researching and documenting the early history of the American automobile. I have found this book to be an invaluable reference in researching the history of the automobile stock and bond certificates which I collect.
Even the most obscure and low-key manufacturer is covered. This book is well worth it's price and my only criticism would be...if all other readers used it as much as I do...please publish the next edition in hardcover!!

Format: Paperback
This is quite a remarkable resource about the history of American automobiles. It is one of author Beverly Rae Kimes's greatest legacies, a detailed, thoroughly researched, and complete work that will remain as the definitive story of the American automobile industry from its earliest days of the horseless carriage. It is almost unimaginable how Kimes and Clark pulled it off. It deserves 6 stars.

I got this for my dad and he has not put it down since receiving it. I was surprised at the size and weight of it. I thought my dad knew every car out there but this book has some he did not know of.

Format: Paperback
I was a friend of Austin Clark and learn alot from him what to look for in vintage cars and how to research them. He gave me the first edition of this Standard Catalong. It been rock for me on appraising hundred of old cars. The detail and research that whe into set it apart fro many other type of book. What I like is the person history and common on market and how the vehicle was recieved. If you reseaching and valuing vintage cars and you don't have this catalog. Then you are missng out on alot infomation. Austin use to tell me. "I wrote this as a bible, but again experence of knowing is worth it weight, when you see the car up closed."
