School Library Journal
Generally well written and readable, as well as attractive, this series recounts the development and history of the vehicles, including brief mentions of the people involved in their conception, such as Lee Iacocca and Enzo Ferrari. The texts do well, not only at describing the cars, but also at putting them into context, discussing reasons for their production, efforts of competitors, and factors that influenced the cars' evolution over the years. Each book includes a vital-statistics section that compares specifications for an early and recent example. Excellent photos, in color and black and white, effectively illustrate the history of the make, featuring both older and recent vintages. However, an error is apparent on the specifications page for the 1953 Corvette, on which an early '60s model is pictured. Still, the series is informative and appealing, despite its quirky selection of vehicles (Hummers in a series that includes Ferraris), and is sure to be popular with car enthusiasts.
