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.
