Format: Paperback
These beautiful cars are excellently rendered, so realistic I just want to get in each one of them and take it for a drive.

I grew up in the fifties so especially love the cars from that era.

All kinds of cars are featured in this coloring book from sedans to sports cars to luxury cars like the gorgeous 1959 Cadillac. There are 30 drawings in all, beginning with a 1950 Mercury 2 door sedan.

In addition to the car, there is a well-drawn background, of a building or an outdoor scene on the roadway,only occasionally are people included in the picture. There is also interesting information about each car on the page.

I am an adult colorer but I think anyone from age 8 and up (if the child has good motor skills)would find this coloring book enjoyable, especially a car enthusiast.

I am coloring mine mostly with non-bleed thru markers and decorative block chalk, but a person could use whatever medium they wish.

I highly recommend it.

Great coloring book, not really for kids..we bought it for a handicapped family member who enjoyed it. Great coloring book, not really for kids..we bought this for a older family member who has dementia, (Alzheimers) and they enjoyed it a lot....a nice hobby for someone who might otherwise be physically confined.

The 5 star rating is my enjoying the references that showed how light reflections and tone should be picked up in my drawings.

I recommend this book as a good reference on drawing the cars and scenery around the cars, as well as shading and tone.

Okay, I bought this super-duper high quality coloring book for my 8 yr old nephew & he uses colored pencils which turn out looking fabulous when the printed pictures are all colored in! There are several of these high-end coloring books to chose from, many different themes & scenes..go check them out! Nice crisp white printed papers. They are great for all ages! Colored pencils seem to work the best! AAAAA+++++++++++

Purchased this coloring book for my husband. I was looking forward to giving it to him to "unwind and relax" in the evenings when he got home from work. It was nice that the cars came with derailed descriptions about them and the pages are very detailed. They look so real when colored. Thanks! I definitely recommend this coloring book!

I bought this just because I like old cars. The book is very nice, with crisp and clear line art of many cars from the period. Very happy with purchase.

I loved my first one so much I ordered a second. The back drops behind the cars are just as fun to do as the cars themselves.
