Page 48, in the heart of the chapter on Buick is a stand-alone image of Starsky & Hutch version Gran Torino circa 1976. Huh?
The author includes four pictures of various 1958 models and none of the GNX or T-Type Regal, newer model Lucerne's, Reatta, Sport Wagon's and so much more.
In the Cadillac section the author fails to mention that the picture is actually of a 1959 Eldorado Biarritz convertible, not just an Eldorado. On the following page, he calls the car a Cadillac convertible with out stating that it is a Series 62 model. AND, he uses pictures of Cadillacs and other manufacturers taken in England. Like England has the best sampling of American cars??!!
With Chrysler, the author image selection consists of a smattering of late 40's to mid-50's models and then a 1958 300, 1959 New Yorker, 1959 Imperial and a 1970 300. All other images skip to the late 90's. What?? No Cordoba?? No 80's Imperial?? No '70's Newport or even mid-60's Engle styled Chryslers?
I cannot even go on!! Every chapter is this bad. I am not nit-picking here!! This book was poorly planned and written as if the deadline was 24 hours and without conviction or even care for the quality of the workmanship!
