Updating the prior reviewer's comments, this book provides a year-by-year highlight of the American Automotive industry and generally a picture or two of a significant design introduction for each given year. The "Personalities" section, highlighting icons of the industry and the "Roll Call" section, identifying all makes and models of American manufactured vehicles are invaluable.
My only wish is the work contained more photographs demonstrating evolution and change in vehicle model design. E.g., the Ford Thunderbird is only represented, photographically, for the years 1958, 1976, and 1991. Frankly, the last two photographs don't really represent elements of that vehicle which were of historical significance the complete inception and early development of that vehicle are lost in this book.
A good read but not particularly strong in a visual representation of America's automobile history.
