Rather than being merely a "who-did-what-when" chronological review of the automobile's technical history, The Automobile: A Century of Progress covers the car's development using a systems-approach to more closely mirror the way a car is engineered. Now collected together in one commemorative volume, these 14 articles (originally published in Automotive Engineering Magazine from 1995-96) tell the story of the birth and development of an industry that revolutionized the modern world.
Well-illustrated with numerous photos and drawings, this fascinating book will be of interest to anyone who loves cars -- the engineer who designs them, the enthusiast who tinkers with them, or the fan who drives them.
