Although I am a die hard Clive Cussler fan, this book featuring his automobile collection is a great book, even if your not a fan of Clive's adventure novels. A great layout of photos of these fantastic old cars. And I especially enjoyed reading about the history and stories of these classics. Looks great on any coffee table!

Wow! This was a fun book to read. Cussler is an interesting guy. Some of the cars in this book, I've never heard of or seen. And I know a lot about automobiles. The photographs of the cars are fantastic. Its fun to read the authors brief stories on how he bought and restored these amazing classic autos.
