THE OLD CAR HOBBY IS ALIVE AND WELL, and it's prospering with continued growth year after year. There are more car clubs today than ever before, and each year the calendar gets more crowded with newly formed collector-car shows, concours, rallies, cruises, tours, vintage races, auctions and car-related television shows. When combined, all of these events have the positive effect of getting more people interested in owning, driving and restoring old cars.
As these new folks get involved with the joys of owning old cars, soon they will want to learn more about the collector-car scene and everything that it encompasses. And what better source of information is there than an illustrated encyclopedia that profiles anything and everything relating to the old-car hobby?
So that's what the editorial staff at Hemmings Motor News decided to create: a collector-car encyclopedia that embraces more than just cars; it includes everything associated with the history of the automobile and the fascinating leisure pursuit of the old-car experience.
The Hemmings Motor News Illustrated Collector -- Car Encyclopedia is the ultimate visual guide to the automobile, starting from its earliest years. Within its comprehensive listings, there are profiles of hundreds of domestic and international automobiles companies, coachbuilders, designers and stylists and the pioneers who created them.
Detailed entries describe the many different components that make up engines, transmissions, differentials, suspensions, brakes and ignition systems, as well as wheels, tires, interiors, lighting and more. Chapters on tools, machinery, paint, museums, concours, restoration, hot rodding, racing, toys and more combine to make this an indispensible resource for anyone involved with vintage automobiles.
Automobiles from all the different eras are covered, as well: Brass, Classic, pre-war, Fifties, Sixties, and all the way up until the mid-1980s, which makes the Hemmings Motor News Illustrated Collector-Car Encyclopedia the one-stop resource for all enthusiasts.
