This book tells of those fascinating makes and models that were manufactured between 1919 and 1930, from the crude and inexpensive cyclecars and popular light cars like the Austin Seven and Bullnose Morris Cowley to the Rolls-Royce and Daimler luxury limousines and the exciting sports cars such as the Frazer Nash, 12/50 Alvis and Bentley and 30/98 Vauxhall. It covers the changing road conditions, the developing design and construction techniques of these vintage cars, and the races and other competition events that their drivers used them fro, including the high-speed events at the famed Brooklands Track. This book is intended for all those fascinated with the vintage era, whether they were motorists in those days of inexpensive petrol and uncongested roads or younger enthusiasts who have become aware of the joys of driving these cars in more recent years. It provides technical and historical information covering the fascinating cars from a highly evocative period in motoring history.
