This is a limited edition series. Volume II details a chronology of mascot design, through the years 1926 to 1933. Dating of mascots is a priority, with several corrections to the existing literature. 25% of the material presented is new to the mascot literature. Over 200 American, French and English designs are shown. Vol. I, 304 pages and Vol. III, 288 pages, are available to complete the 3 volume set of 880 pages with over 600 mascots detailed in large photos and expert narrative.
Everyone has a story about that first car. Whether it was new, a hand-me-down, or a junker, it was freedom on four wheels, independence, responsibility, and something that would always hold a special place in your heart. Well, you're not alone. My First Car captures those wonderful moments of automotive initiation as they were lived by such luminaries as Jay Leno, Mario Andretti, Patrick Dempsey, Danica Patrick, Sir Stirling Moss, Gregg Allman, and more. Accompanying many of these stories are photographs of the neophyte drivers with their first cars. For anyone who ever slid behind the wheel and tooled down the road for the first time, this wonderful book awakens memories of what it was like.
