Postwar Sports Cars – The Modern Classics
Large softcover, 188 pages, published 1981 by Ebury Press, very good condition with some writing in pen on the back cover
Aston Martin, Frazer Nash, De Tomaso, Facel Vega, Lamborghini, Pegaso, Porsche – the fascination of sports cars from the last forty years seems to grow with every passing year.
Eric Dymock’s story begins with the formative pre-war years; the breeding ground of Le Mans in the Twenties; and then moves on to concentrate on the era of the ‘modern classics’. He covers over sixty international marques, revealing the personalities behind the cars, the technical qualities that made individual models unique, and then gives an authoritative personal appreciation of the achievement of each car maker.
