"Only the true fanatic can identify the marque of every car; for most of us it is the manufacturer's emblem that must convey the message of the brand. But why do Ferraris carry a prancing horse? Why are three diamonds sported on every Mitsubishi? What lies behind the ram's head of the Dodge? And what is the meaning of the rosette on Chryslers? With over 1000 illustrations, this book reveals the secrets behind the genesis and evolution of 125 car emblems from around the world, including every significant one currently in use and dozens more classic examples. This is an essential reference source for every car aficionado."--BOOK JACKET.
