A to Z of Sports Cars, 1945-1990
More than 850 firm built sports cars between 1945 and 1990. They came from every corner of the world. Not just the obvious places such as Britain, the USA, Italy, Germany, France and Japan, or the likely places like Switzerland, Scandinavia, Spain and Australia, but from some unlikely places too, including Brazil, Uruguay, Egypt, the Philippines and Israel.
