Entries include information on the choice makes and models of the age. From the universally appreciated (Chevrolet Corvette, Lincoln Continental Mark II, Dodge Coronet D-500, Plymouth Fury, AMC Nash Rambler) to the acquired tastes of the overseas market (Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, MGA, Mark I Jaguar, Peugeot 403, Citroën DS19, Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, BMW Isetta, Škoda 440 Datsun 110, Prince Skyline, Suzilight), All Cylinders: Cars of 1955 is a lively eBook that captures the spirit of the era and its innovation.

Past the great cars of the era, readers will also discover entries that cover the labor that built them, the roads, bridges, and tunnels they drove through, the races they ran in, the motorcycles, buses and trolleys they ran alongside or replaced, the policies that insured them and ads that sold them, the smog they belched, and the myriad technical advances that inched them toward the present.

With a snappy design and ample imagery from the era, All Cylinders: Cars of 1955 is sure to draw classic car fans into a now bygone era when America’s love affair with the automobile was at its apex.
