The "50 years" is from 1930 to 1989. Color photos, and a good many b&w, have been included here with a lavish hand (we wish the Yugoslav printers had been more competent--the illustrations are mediocre). The "Auto Editors of Consumer Guide" have provided good, brief histories of the cars. These range from the born-a-half-century-too- soon Bantam & Willys through the still-shocking horrors of the prodigal 50s and 60s to the legislated reason of the more efficient, less vulgar 80s. Arranged alphabetically by name in two sections--the history and photo section, and the specifications section. No bibliography. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
