From AC to Yugo, here is an A-Z of the 630-plus cars offered in Britain through the 1990s. For each make there is a brief historical introduction, followed by individual entries on their models. Each model entry begins with a brief specification giving details of production period, body types, powertrain layout, engine capacities and performance, and then the author provides a description of the model and its features, with comments on its reception in the market and its status today. Every model is illustrated.
This new book adds to Herridge & Sons' existing list of A-Zs of Cars ranging from the 1930s to the 1980s. With the beginning of this period now some 25 years behind us, this is an invaluble reference work.
Graham Robson possesses a worldwide reputation as a motoring historian, and has been close to the sport of rallying for many years, as a competitor, team manager, organizer, reporter, commentator and observer; in more than forty years he has never lost touch with the sport. Not only has Graham competed in many British and European events, he's also reported on marathons in South America, and acted as a traveling controller in the legendary London-Mexico World Cup Rally. As a recognized authority on many aspects of classic cars and motoring of that period, he is the most prolific of all authors, with more than 130 published books to his credit. Over the years Graham has owned, driven, described and competed in many of the cars featured in the Rally Giants Series, and his insight to their merits is unmatched. Graham Robson lives and works in England.
