The golden age of American cars and trucks are chronicled in this nostalgic combination. Gleeming chrome, outrageous fins, and those wonderfully brash two tone paint schemes are shown in abundance in 288 full color pages. Hearkens to the days when you could tell the make of a car or turck from the other end of the street and every fall anticipated a refreshingly new look to your favorite model. A great gift for the lover of fins and chrome. Motorbooks Enthusiast Color Series features well over 100 titles on every subject for which we publish. Cars, trucks, airplanes, trains, americana, tractors, and so much more! These Crestline bind-ups combine three related titles in a value priced package. This is a bind-up of the three classic titles Fifties American Cars, Chevy 55-56-57, and Classic Pickups of the 1950s
