Description

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.

The author

Graham Robson is one of the most experienced, prolific and versatile motoring historians in the world, and is recognized as one of the authorities on anything concerning Ford in motorsport. He watched his first F1 GP - at Aintree - in 1955, and has never lost touch with the cars, the technical trends, and - most importantly - the personalities connected with placing Ford, and Cosworth, at the pinnacle of F1. He was close to Cosworth, both as a working historian, and as a personal friend of the company's senior personalities, throughout the lengthy period covered by the DFV - and considers it an honour to have been entrusted with the compilation of this amazing story.
