Racing Sports Cars Memories of the 50s
Back in the fifties, the definition of a sports car was one that could be not only used as a daily driver, but also raced in an organized event. Cars and drivers of all abilities took to the field, resulting in some wild and wooly wheel to wheel action. It also resulted in some amazing photographs. This book combines those photos with first hand accounts of more than 60 top drivers, some of whom went on to become world famous.
The book is composed of 50 chapters, each dedicated to a different marque. A full page photograph and explanatory text describes each model, 74 in all, often with a driver who describes the car along with personal experiences. Each chapter also includes a short biography of the individual most associated with the creation of the car, Enzo Ferrari, John Cooper, Sydney Allard and Ferry Porsche to cite a few.
