About the Author
Praise For British Family Cars of the 1950s and '60s…
"The post-WWII years lead to a proliferation in car ownership, in Britain as much as anywhere else. This era was probably the heyday of original, non-cookie cutter design, several of which utterly iconic (the Mini turned 50 this year). Also covers some of the foreign makes that had an important place in the market, and which influenced the British-made cars that followed... if you still don't know Shire Books, you don't know what you're missing. These small books pack a wallop of information into their few pages!" -Rolls Royce Owners' Club, Inc (December 2009)
