The books were four of six featured in the section about holiday gifts.
Of Mustang: Fifty Years, the Times says: "Donald Farr, a longtime writer and editor at Mustang-centric publications, provides a comprehensive recounting of the car's gestation as a design study in the early 1960s, its splashy debut at the 1964 New York World's Fair and its tumultuous life up through the fifth-generation model that is entering its final model year."
The Times describes Strange But True Takes of Car Collecting as a "likable book (that) serves as a "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" for car obsessives, minus the nifty cartoons."
"Libraries are full of reflective, overthought travelogues. If you prefer yours presented with all the cheer of a tall tale told in a pub and put together with the artistic élan of a family Christmas newsletter, you will strike gold," is the review of The Real Way Round.
