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 wheels--the decade celebrated in this book.
