With This Book it's OK to Stop and Stare!

Fender benders and motoring mishaps are nothing unique to this decade, as you'll see in this unique collection of accident-scene photos from the '40s, '50s and '60s.

Not only will you be amazed at the twisted bumpers, smashed headlights and wrecked "collector" cars, you'll enjoy author John Gunnell's anecdotal and very often humorous captions which tell you the year and make the autos involved, as well as various collector details.

After paging through the photos in CRASH! you're certain to have a new appreciation for the safety features we all enjoy in the cars we drive today.
