American Auto Legends Classics of Style & Design by Michael Furman

Text by Tracy Powell

[From the book sleeve]

"Few nations are so closely identified with the automobile as the United States. Indeed, the cultural and social history of modern America is inextricably linked to the products of it automotive industry.  Lavishly illustrated throughout, American Auto Legends presents more than fifty of the most remarkable American cars ever produced, from the "horseless carriages" of the early 1900s to the luxury vehicles of the 1920s and 1930s, the "muscle cars" of the 1960s, and the sleek and ultra-efficient machines of the early twenty-first century."

"Following a brief introduction to the history of the U.S. auto industry, the selected models appear chronologically.  Concise descriptions highlight the key features of each vehicle, while stunning images by one of America's leading car photographers provide the reader with an unparalleled visual record.  Biographies of key industry figures, a full technical glossary, and details of where the cars may be seen conclude a highly informative book.  Featuring all the major U.S. manufacturers-including Buick, Chevrolet, Ford, Lincoln, and Studebaker-American Auto Legends is an essential and authoritative guide to the many icons of the American highway."
