This volume celebrates America's love affair with the automobile. Fans of vintage cars will find their favourites among the Packards and Cadillacs, woodies and pick-ups, Edsels and Bel-Airs, Corvettes and Thunderbirds. Roadside attractions of a bygone era - neon-lit motels, mom-and-pop hamburger stands, diners and drive-ins - as well as natural scenery along the country's open roads provide a nostalgic tribute to both the American car and the culture it spawned. The book is peppered with quotes from those who travelled the country's fabled roads in the days before inter-states and chain restaurants.
