Four Quayside Titles Make New York Times Auto Book List

December 12, 2013
Mustang: Fifty Years , Strange But True Tales of Car Collecting , The Real Way Round , and Art of the Classic Car were highlighted in the New York Times automobile gift book section.

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.
