Overview

In the 1950s the American automobile industry arrived in style. In the postwar boom, Americans were flush and full of optimism. They wanted cars that reflected the spirit of the day, and automakers happily obliged. Thus began the decade of fins and whitewalls, craftsmanship and fine-tuned art on wheelsa the decade celebrated in this book.

Here are the cars that Detroit came up with, drawing on all the muscle and magic of the era, the unprecedented prosperity and new technologies and true feats of design. In splendid, full-color pictures and fact-filled text, the book recreates the iconic era of American automobiles, one car at a time.

From stylish sports cars like the Corvette and Thunderbird, to luxury Lincoln and Cadillac sedans, to the inimitable models from independents like Nash, Studebaker, Crosley, American Cars of the 1950s conveys the spirit of automotive America at its best."
