I bought this book thinking it would be a _general_ guide to the restoration of classic car components. But when I received it I discovered that (other than a brief chapter on shop tools and methods) it only covers the restoration of very specific items... and unless you are restoring THAT SU carb or THAT Motorcraft distributor or THAT whatever, the book is pretty useless. And on top of that, the book focuses on BRITISH stuff. I'm a Ford Model A fanatic and was really disappointed to find that this book was of no use to me at all. Save your money, guys...

A great book for anyone working on old British cars. I purchased this used, removed from circulation at a public library. It only cost a few dollars, while new copies are listed for crazy high prices. A bargain! This is a great way to buy books like this if you are interested in the content. If you want to save it as a perfect collectors item, you have to pay the high prices.

I purchased this book based on the glowing review in Antique Automobile (AACA, Mar-Apr 2004) and have not been disappointed. If you are restoring a British car this book will give you insightful, solid how-to information, especially relevant to postwar cars through the 60's. Specific information given on Lucas, Smiths, Weber, Stromberg, Zenith, Wilmot-Breeden, and other classic British component bits, and much of the information is generalizable to other manufacturer components, especially regarding restoration technique. Well-illustrated and well-written -- I wish more automotive books were this well done. The Wallages clearly know what they are talking about and their tips are invaluable to "proper" restoration. Very useful book, indeed.

I had checked this book out at the local library because I am restoring a old british car. It offered clear, simple and much needed instructions with excellent photos. I had looked to buy this book in several book stores and online but e-bay was the one for me. The book arrived on time and in excellent shape. Have been happy with my purchase.
